Packing List

Some useful tips

Lost Luggage:- To avoid inconvenience in the event of lost/delayed luggage, we recommend you carry onto the plane your washing kit & medications, a change of clothes, walking boots and day pack.

Travel Tips:- Travel in your boots and bring slippers for the plane journey. Earplugs are useful, especially if using city hotels where church bells or traffic may be a nuisance. A small umbrella can be useful for rain and shine protection. Medicines you know are always more comforting, so it is worth bringing a small supply of your prescribed and favorite cures!

Water:- Water in Europe is drinkable unless it says otherwise, but those who are sensitive may wish to drink bottled water.

Breakfast:- Most hotels offer a range of items including cereal, fruit, yogurt, eggs, bread and pastries, cheese and ham. In England you can get a cooked breakfast!

Luggage allowance:-  1 MEDIUM CASE H60cm /24″; W40cm /16″; D28cm /11″  + 1 DAY PACK.

We have limited space in the minibus and reserve the right to refuse your case or ask you to pay transfer fees  if you exceed these limits – also if you are traveling before or after the tour remember that you will have to carry your  luggage up and down steps and stairs!

Think practically:- Do pack carefully for the sake of your arms and ours; it is amazing what you can do without!
