Questions & Answers
Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.
Is accommodation included with the pass?
The cost of accommodation is not included in our hop-on hop-off passes. Your Tour Leader can recommend and book accommodation for each night - alternatively you have the option to research and arrange your own accommodation. Prices vary depending on location and season but expect to pay from US$5 for a shared room to US$24 for a twin or double (up to US$60 for top end private rooms in the main cities). Our preferred accommodation is usually in guest houses – but in some remote stops we use traditional-style home stays. Please note this is Southeast Asia and we have to be prepared for anything, including alterations to preferred accommodation options.
How much money should I budget for per day?
We suggest you bring up to US$25 each day for food and entertainment.
Is travel insurance required?
There is no travel insurance cover included in the price of a Stray pass but adequate and valid travel insurance is compulsory to travel with us.
What should I pack?
Light clothes for the wet season (May – Oct) and something warm for the dry season (Nov – Mar), especially for the north of Laos and Thailand; a good travel medical kit supplied by a doctor (for any inconveniences, dietary or otherwise); your travel insurance details; sunscreen; bug repellent (at least 30% deet content); girls - a sarong for swimming in remote areas, local culture requires modesty; a poncho or light raincoat (it can rain even in the dry season in the north), shoes/trainers for walking, a roll of toilet paper and hand sanitizer is always good, and of course, a sense of adventure!
What's the average age of travelers?
Our average age is late 20s, BUT Stray is not about age, it's a mind set. If you enjoy being active and meeting people you are right for Stray
Do I need to be very fit for the tour?
You don’t have to be an athlete to travel with us – all walks and activities are optional and there is something for everyone.
Can I travel alone?
Absolutely, that's the beauty of small group travel. You will make friends quickly and your Tour Guide will become a good source of support to you along the way too!
How many people travel in a group usually?
The majority of our hop-on hop-off tour groups consist of between 10 and 15 people, with a maximum of 24 (including driver and Tour Guides). Having a small group size not only means we can offer a more personalised service, but it also gives us access to more destinations, activity and accommodation options.
