    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour generally starts from Generator Hostel in London at 6 am. Due to the early start, we recommend arriving at least one day prior to the tour, so you have time to settle in and make sure you do not miss the departure! You also have the option to meet up with your group at approximately 5 pm in Paris on the first day of the tour if you wish. Please be aware the starting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • 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?

      Topdeck creates trip itineraries designed exclusively for younger travellers. They can be more fast-paced, budget-minded, and includes activities for travellers to meet and have fun with other young passengers from all parts of the world! Their brand is designed around this unique experience geared toward younger travellers, so only passengers aged 18 - 39 years old can travel on this tour.

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

      A single supplement is, unfortunately, not available for this tour, so if you are a solo traveller you will be roomed in dorm-share accommodation with your fellow travellers.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a list of accommodations available for the Europe Express tour, as the accommodations change so frequently. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details.

      On this tour, you will be staying 8 nights in hostels and 2 nights in bungalows at European campsites. This tour is multi-share, meaning you will share your hostel room with between 3 and 5 others (although in some circumstances you will share with more than 5) and when you stay in bungalows you will be staying with up to 4 people in a room. Please note that all multi-share accommodations are single-sex.

    • 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.

    • Does this tour have a twin share option?

      Topdeck does not have a twin-share option on their Europe Express tour.
