Treadright Ambassador Celine Cousteau’s tips for sustainable travel 1.

Keep up the good work

You say no to straws and use a waterbottle at home, so keep doing what you do at home, abroad. 2.

Make travel matter. We believe sustainable tourism matters all year round, not just on your trip. With the help of our parent company, The Travel Corporation, we work with the TreadRight Foundation to support key projects globally. Our mission is to do our part in three key ways, protecting people, wildlife and the planet we share. See all of TreadRight’s projects at treadright.org

We respect local cultures and champion traditional heritage, working together with the local communities and artisans we visit.

Spend your travel money wisely

Do what you can to spend your money with sustainable & ethical suppliers. Or consider donating to a charity that's local to the places you visit. 3.

Keep traveling & tread lightly

Travel is the best thing any of us can do. It opens our eyes to new cultures & builds shared respect, so tread lightly & keep traveling. Hear all her tips on the Contiki Podcast, Out Of Office

We support and educate on ethical animal experiences and protect the world’s most at-risk wildlife from extinction.

In our offices and on the road, we think green with our policies, products and practices, committed to keeping our planet safe.

VISIT CONTIKI.COM/FAQ FOR FULL Q+A DETAILS

BEFORE YOU BOOK WHAT’S INCLUDED THE ESSENTIALS All accommodation, transportation, and a good handful of meals are included in the cost of your Contiki trip (in most regions we offer breakfast every day, plus a cherry-picked selection of authentic and tasty meals). We also have our Included Experiences, which are basically the sights and activities we think you just can’t afford to miss. And then of course you also get our expert and highly trained team of Contiki staff; our Trip Managers, and English-speaking Local Guides. Plus we include all private coach transportation and internal flights (check your itinerary). We also include sightseeing tours of all major cities and orientations in all other destinations, and hotel tips (excluding North America & Latin America), local taxes and service charges.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED Flights to and from your start and end destination are not included in the cost of your trip. These can be booked independently, or added on during the booking process either online or with your travel agent. We also keep a number of meal times free for you to explore a region and its foodie offerings in greater detail, so budgeting for non-catered meals is important. In terms of activities, we also offer Free Time Add-Ons, which are additional experiences you can get involved in during your free time on trip, which are not included in the overall price. If you’re hitting the slopes with us, we can point you in the right direction for ski & snowboard hire or lessons if you need to brush up on your skills. If you have your own kit, you’ll also need to budget any excess baggage fees, or additional transfer charges, and any tips for porters. Travel insurance and visas are also not included in the cost of your trip and need to be booked separately.

AIRFARES

Your passport will need to be valid for at least six months after your arrival. Without enough validity, authorities may deny your entry into a country, even if you’re only staying for a short while.

IMPORTANT 1. Visas can take up to 17 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 or local consular services before you leave home. Be aware that some visas can be purchased & arranged on arrival. 4. It is very important that the entry & exit dates are correct on the visa. Your travel agent will contact Contiki for full details.

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATION: Contiki hotel accommodation is based on two people sharing (twin share). Contiki travelers share with either with someone they are traveling with or if traveling solo are matched to share in a same sex room. We stay in 3-4 star hotels, many of which are centrally located, with great facilities. Contiki provides options where possible to book a triple room to save on the cost of the trip. There are also options available to upgrade to a single room at a supplement. These are not guaranteed for every trip and are sourced only where possible. In our hostels, Contiki travelers share rooms with up to 8 people dependent on the region, we call this multishare. The rooms are same sex*. In New Zealand there are up to 8 in a room, in Australia up to 6 and in Europe there are up to 6 sharing as a maximum, often less. From time to time, we may need to increase the maximum limit in rooms, for reasons out of our control. Special Stays differ from trip to trip in terms of rooming configurations from twin share to multishare. They are accommodation authentic to the region and therefore preserve the local cultures and traditions. Camping and Glamping accommodation ranges from basic to luxurious and is mostly twin share, with triple share for glamping in the USA. Please check your trip page and visit contiki.com or call your travel agent for full details. Note: On occasion, due to reasons outside our control, alternative hotels/ properties may be used. While it is always our intention to use hotels of a similar standard & location, no liability can be accepted for any variation of either.    *some exceptions do apply – Noah Surf House on Portugal City to Surf

SEE/VIEW You will drive/pass by the site so that you can see it. SIGHTSEEING TOUR A guided tour of a city or site. ORIENTATION TOUR Places of interest are pointed out, allowing you to go and explore them in your own time.

AGE RESTRICTIONS Laws dealing with purchasing alcohol, entering nightclubs & bars & gambling in casinos differ around the world. For example, in Europe & Latin America, you must be 18 years of age to purchase alcohol, enter nightclubs & bars & gamble in casinos. In the United States, you must be 21 years of age to purchase alcohol, enter nightclubs & bars & gamble in casinos. Acceptable forms of identification to prove age include a valid passport or United States driver’s license. Laws in Canada differ from the United States, with 18 being the legal age in Alberta & Quebec & 19 being the legal age in British Columbia & Ontario for the above activities.

+\A

Internal flights as specified on individual trip itineraries are included as part of the price. We rely on international conventions regarding air travel & other transportation as specified. Through enrollment & payment for your trip you acknowledge & accept such. Individual electronic tickets may not be issued to you prior to travel due to the group nature of the air/flight booking. In such circumstances you acknowledge that by receipt of any applicable boarding pass &/or by boarding the aircraft you have accepted the airline’s terms & conditions of travel & the application of all relevant International Conventions & applicable national & international law governing air transportation.

VISA REQUIREMENTS

Visas are super important and are essential for entering certain countries. It’s up to you to be responsible for obtaining all necessary visas prior to the departure of your trip. Run this by your travel agent (if applicable) or check out a visa service well in advance to determine if/which visas you will require and how to obtain them. Remember, visas can take up to 17 weeks and a fee is normally charged, so don’t leave this one until the last minute. We recommend you apply for all visas through your travel agent or visa service before commencing your travel journey.

OVERLAPPING TRIPS

To offer our travelers more flexibility around when they start and how long they travel for, some of our trips are sections of larger itineraries. This means that some of them overlap - for example, some of your group may have already been traveling before you join them, and may continue traveling after your adventure has come to an end. You can see if your trip is part of a larger itinerary on the trip page.

Contiki reserves the right to refuse to accept larger suitcases or bags on the trip. Wheeled suitcases can be used on Contiki trips in Asia & Latin America. On trips which include Flotilla Sailing or if you have booked our Inca Trail Trek or Galapagos trip a small bag suitable for the extremely limited luggage space is required.

This includes alcohol, shopping, and any evening entertainment not included.

NO COMPULSORY TIPPING REWARD ONLY EXCELLENCE! Every country in the world has different tipping policies & within service industries, tipping is common practice. All tipping is entirely optional, and not an expectation. If you feel your Contiki Team has delivered an outstanding level of service throughout your trip you may wish to tip them, but this is at your discretion, no one else’s.

HEALTH DO I NEED VACCINATIONS? It is wise to check with your medical doctor, travel agent or visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines prior to departure to see if you require any vaccinations for the countries you’ll be visiting. Don’t forget to bring with you any medication that you may require en route, such as antihistamines or antibiotics.

SAFETY 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 cancelation. Please refer to contiki. com 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.
