You’re only young once & now is the time to make every moment count. What better way to start than taking in the sights, history & culture of Europe & having a whole lot of fun along the way. Travelling in Winter, Autumn or Spring means you can escape the crowds & fully immerse yourself in the local flavour Europe has on offer. Life is there to be lived. Make sure you look back with #noregrets.

“ACTION EXPRESSES PRIORITIES” - Gandhi. It’s easy to believe in things, but much harder to live them. They’re not just words we say, they’re words we live by: Make every moment count. You only get one shot at life, but if you do it right that’s all you’ll need. We’re about people, not things. It’s people’s individuality, diversity & a little bit of craziness that makes the World go round.

Life’s an adventure. Push yourself – you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve.

Do things with passion. Life isn’t just there to be lived; it’s there to be loved.

Be young, and stay that way no matter what your age. Always see the World through youthful eyes.

Tread lightly, respect our World & its inhabitants. Walk around the World, not over it.

Challenge everything. Disregard what seems impossible. Embrace change.

Be part of the story. Don’t sit on the sidelines – get involved & make your mark.

exclusive team On every trip, you get your own dedicated & passionate Tour Manager & Driver team, who will bring Europe to life, and take care of all the hassle you don’t want to deal with. From finding the hotel to navigating the streets, to packing the coach & unloading bags, leave the hard stuff to them & concentrate on what you came to do. Have the BEST experience possible.

EXCLUSIVE inclusions We know Europe, and after 53 epic years of showing young explorers Europe, no other company gives you better access to the things you’ve just got to see & experience. The blockbuster sights like the Eiffel Tower are included (and…we’ll even help you skip the queues!). We’ll also get you to the places that only a local “in-the-know” can. Plus we get you there in style, with WiFi available on our coaches & most of the places we stay. We know all the in’s & outs, and we’ve got expert connections in every single destination.

PASS TO EUROPE

exclusive accommodation Our trips in Autumn, Winter & Spring are all hotels, every single night – for comfort that our travellers love. And our Concept trips are a cool blend of hotels & hostels to keep things just as diverse as our awesome destinations. They’re more than just a place to unpack your bags & catch a quick nap, our accommodation is truly part of the Contiki experience. We even have our very own authentic Gasthof (traditional guest house) nestled amongst the hills of the Austrian Alps which is exclusive to our Ski & Board Austria trips. It even includes our very own Contiki on-site team. It’s just another way that travelling with Contiki is all about making it count.

EXCLUSIVE E FO FOOD O We’re a bunch of foodies, so we know how key it is to try those exciting new flavours when you travel. By night, experience the regional tastes you’ve come to try. From traditional goulash in Budapest, to mouthwatering pans of paella in Spain, our included dinners feature the best in regional cuisine served up by some of our favourite local European restaurants. And we include ALL breakfasts on our trips. Because let’s face it, that extra half hour should be spent sleeping, not looking for breakfast! And we don’t believe in our travellers cutting their day short for a tasteless generic snack, so we keep lunches free, so you can keep exploring & try what you want, when you want. See p.9 for more.

exclusive OPTIONS It’s your trip – and your time. That’s why with us you have the freedom to explore at your leisure, discover on your own, or just kick back & soak it all in. It’s called ME Time, and it’s all about you. From bungy jumping in the Swiss Alps, to catching an authentic Mozart concert in Vienna, we offer a ton of exclusive optional extras that are guaranteed to make your time, ME Time. Or if you would prefer to just sit back & soak up the scene, explore the streets or shop, then that’s cool too! See p.7 for some inspiration on what you could be getting up to.

company, and that’s nowhere near good enough for us. That’s why we challenge everything.

PASS TO EUROPE

ME Time = the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Freedom to choose, especially when you travel, is important & the only thing fixed on our trips is your next epic destination. We know our travellers have boxes they want to tick, so adrenalin junkies, people looking for a culture fix, foodies looking for inspiration or those just wanting to sit back or shop, will always get their fix. We’ve been around for over 53 years, and through our amazing connections throughout Europe, we’ve lined up an endless list of incredible experiences, with great prices you wouldn’t otherwise get without a friend in the know. From bobsledding or paragliding, to Italian cooking classes, the Moulin Rouge or gondola rides in Venice - our experiences are unique to the incredible destinations. It’s exactly what making it count is all about.

And best of all it’s social, with chats forming some seriously lasting friendships. We keep you charged with powerpoints on-board, and WiFi on many coaches… it’s coach travel, but not as you know it.

Booking Security Contiki has been running tours for young people since 1962 & in all countries where Contiki operates we fully comply with local industry laws. In New Zealand Contiki is an allied member of the Travel Agents Association of New Zealand (TAANZ).

Online check-in It is strongly recommended that you check in to your trip prior to departure at contiki.com/checkin. Checking in will save you time on your first day of the trip, give you essential information & also ensure that Contiki can contact you in the unlikely event of any changes to your trip due to matters out of our control. For more information on how to get more before & after your trip see contiki.com.

How much luggage can I bring? On our trips, luggage is restricted to a maximum suitcase size of 73cm x 50cm x 25cm (29” x 20” x 10”) & maximum weight of 20 kg (44lbs) plus one small hand/day bag that can go on the coach with you. Contiki reserves the right to refuse to accept larger & heavier suitcases on tour. On Concept trips & Camping trips, you’ll need a sleeping bag (which can be purchased from Contiki in London, if necessary) & a towel, unless otherwise indicated. On Ski holidays you may bring one pair of ski boots & skis or a snowboard. Any luggage over the restricted size or amount can be stored with Contiki in London at a small charge. Baggage is carried at the owner’s risk & baggage insurance is strongly recommended.

Do I need visas? Please read carefully. Depending on your nationality, you may require visas to enter certain countries included in your trip. You are fully responsible for obtaining all necessary visas prior to the departure of your trip. Contiki is not legally permitted to knowingly allow anybody who does not have a valid visa to join a trip. Consult your travel agent to determine which visas you require & how to obtain them.

SCHENGEN VISAS The majority of our trips travel in countries that are covered by the Schengen Agreement which relates to visas. Citizens of many countries – eg. Australia, United States, Canada, New Zealand – can travel in the Schengen area without a visa. If you require a visa to enter the Schengen area you only need to obtain one visa which will allow you to travel in all Schengen countries. Schengen visas can be issued for single entry or multiple entries. If your trip travels outside of the Schengen area at any point you will require a multiple entry visa. The trips that require multiple entry Schengen visas are listed below: Spanish Spree, European Trail, Eastern Rocker, Trail to Rome, Trail to London.

VISAS FOR NON-SCHENGEN COUNTRIES Some of our trips also visit countries that are not covered by the Schengen Agreement. You may require visas for countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Egypt, Russia, Belarus & Turkey. Depending on your nationality it may be possible to obtain visas for Egypt upon arrival – you should check before you depart for your trip.

IMPORTANT 1. Visas can take up to six weeks & a fee is normally charged. 2. Failure to obtain all necessary visas could cause you to miss part of your trip & will result in you incurring considerable expense & inconvenience. 3. It is better to apply for all visas through your travel agent before you leave home. Your travel agent will contact Contiki for full details. 4. Contiki will provide you with visa contacts from our London base at the Royal National Hotel, if necessary.

Do I need vaccinations? At the time this brochure went to press (May, 2014), no vaccinations were necessary. However, it is wise to check up-to-date information with your travel agent prior to departure. Don’t forget to bring with you any medication that you may require en route, such as antihistamines, antibiotics.

important information Security is a major concern to all of us and the situation globally is constantly changing. Events around the world, coupled with the “Travel Advisories“ put out by various governments, may at times necessitate changes to the accommodations and itinerary or even trip cancellation. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information in this regard. You must accept these risks involved in travel to any country that may experience security difficulties and accept responsibility for your own travel decisions.

Brochure authenticity

Travel insurance

We have put a great deal of effort into producing this brochure. The information given & literature produced by Contiki has been compiled with care & is published in good faith (this includes contiki.com & our e-brochures). Sometimes, because of circumstances outside our control, we have to alter some activities due to seasonal closing or repairs to buildings, etc., especially early or late in the season. If this happens, alternatives will be arranged.

Cancellation, unexpected medical expenses, injuries, theft, lost luggage or money can significantly disrupt & ruin your holiday. Contiki very strongly recommends that you take out comprehensive insurance cover for cancellation, medical expenses, evacuation & repatriation expenses, personal accident, personal baggage, money & public liability before you travel. In some instances, you may not be accepted on a Contiki holiday unless you have arranged satisfactory insurance. You also agree to indemnify us against all third-party claims, actions, damages & remedies against us arising from your participation in your holiday. For insurance details, please speak to your travel agent when you are booking your trip.
