Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour will end after breakfast at 8 am in Dublin, where it is time to say a fond farewell to your newfound friends! Please be aware the hotel where the tour ends will not be confirmed until your booking is finalised.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of the tour generally starts from Holiday Inn in Edinburgh and as the first day is just an arrivals day you can arrive at any time. There is, however, a welcome meeting at approximately 4.30 pm so we recommend arriving beforehand so you can meet your group and fellow travellers. Please be aware the starting hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Unfortunately, airport transfers are not available for this tour so you will need to make your own way to and from the airport.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. This is a list of hotels that they typically stay at, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Holiday Inn, Edinburgh City West

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      Contiki operates tours exclusively for travellers between ages 18-35. They are geared towards active, budget-minded young travellers who want to meet other people from all over the world, and tend to be very popular with students and backpackers. Due to this, children and travellers outside of the age range are not able to participate in this tour.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is available for this tour at an additional cost if you would prefer your own room, however, if you don't mind sharing you will be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same gender. You can select the single room option on the booking page once you have clicked 'Book Now' on the departure you are interested in.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com
