FAQs

  • Can you provide help with visa processing?

    Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

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

    Rooms are twin or double share and if you're travelling solo, then you'll be sharing with someone of the same gender unless there is a mandatory single supplement in which case you will have your own room. You can also request your own room for an additional cost.
