Single Gun Club
Many of us find ourselves in a situation where for various reasons we find that we do not have anyone to travel with. Therefore many people miss out on shooting holidays as they believe there is no alternative.
To help customers in this situation we started our “Single Gun Club” This all began with a few customers calling in as they wished to travel and shoot somewhere exciting. Maybe pigeon shooting in Argentina, mixed game shooting in Sweden, or perhaps luxurious Partridge Shooting in Portugal. But alas, their friends for various reasons could not travel with them. Apart from offering these customers destinations where they could both travel and shoot as a single gun (which 90% of the time involved significant supplements) we started to advertise and look for other Sportquest Holidays customers who would like to share a trip with them.
This then allowed two or more people to make new friendships, share in great experiences all at the same time, not having to pay any additional supplements. Making for cheap shooting holidays that we could offer to everyone. Before we knew it the “Single Gun Club” was born. This club has now enabled many of our customers to experience shooting holidays around the world.
Simply click on the link and follow the prompts. It will ask you for your name, email, phone number, where it is that you are interested in fishing and what you wish to catch. Once you have submitted the basic information we will call you to discuss your requirements. Once we have a good understanding of the things you are looking for we will create a list in our single angler section on our website. We will then keep in touch with you letting you know as soon as we have any interest in sharing any trips with you.
Once you have browsed through the single gun listings looking for a shooting partner and you find someone with similar interests, click on the enquire button at the bottom of their listing this will then take you to a contact page. Fill out the required fields and send it to us. We will call you to discuss your interests and then if suitable we will contact the other party and start to put you both in touch with each other.
If both parties are in agreement we will pass on each of your details so you can make contact with each other before confirming the trip, It is up to you if you just communicate by e-mail, phone or indeed you even arrange to meet up beforehand.
Many destinations and trips are based on twin rooms, however where ever possible we can and do book single rooms. This may result in there being a small supplement to pay to ensure a single room.
A difficult one to answer but as the average age of our customers is between 50 and 65 this gives you a good average, however, we do also have customers travel with us from 18 to 90 years of age.
We had an excellent time at La Dormida. The only complaint from our group was that we didn’t stay long enough. Everything at the lodge was perfect – the setting, the accommodations and the food. I was very impressed with the logistics involved and they all handled them perfectly.
A big thank you to all your staff and for recommending Guayascate to us all. We all feel like we have found a new home. While we were there we also made some great new friends from all over the world. A fantastic destination, fantastic shooting all in amazing company.
We had a delightful time. From the pick up at the airport to the departure everything seemed to flow smoothly. The food was superb and plentiful. The hunts were, as always, terrific fun. Overall an absolutely fantastic trip.
