Hey guys I just booked this tour as well! So pumped! I am Ryan from Toronto, Canada age 23 and this is my first time traveling with Contiki and cannnot wait :) I’m getting to London one night before the tour…so May 10th or 11th i believee at the Royal National hotel….but only bought a one-way ticket and plan on staying for who knows how long after the tour! haha…but yeah its great to meet all of you this will be the trip of a lifetime for sure! :) :)
Hey guys, this is so exciting! Kyle, Aliesha – thanks for adding me on Facebook, such a great way to stay in touch before the big trip!!
Ryan -welcome! I’m doing quite a bit of travelling over there myself – after the contiki i have hired a car for 17 days to go road tripping up around England and Scotland – i have 3 spare seats in the car if anyone wants to join me! ….don’t quite have a one-way ticket though, that’s exciting!
Hey Ryan good to know more people are coming :D Thats cool, are we all staying at the Royal National Hotel? Im so super jealous of you both, if i had my act together i would have had my visa ready so i could come and travel with you guys!! I am planning to be living in England by the end of the year so you never know you guys could be there too :) The visa is for two years. Ryan feel free to add us on facebook :) Leehs_chocolate@hotmail.com. Sam so excited to have another friend on facebook, what are you looking forward to the most??

Hi everyone, my name is Erin and I am heading over on a 1 way ticket to London with my cousin Amy we are both booked and payed for. I am getting really excited and nervious at the same time, sounds like there should be a few good noghts out for bdays :)
Hey Erin and Amy Thats awesome :)
Have you girls got facebook ? Would be good to talk to you some more before we go ? :)
Talk soon :)
Hi Erin and Amy, so cool to see more people joining the tour :) We are mostly all on facebook and on each others facebook so feel free to add us :) how did you get away with a one way ticket, are you doing the 2 year working visa?? Customs may stop you coming through on a one way ticket – :/ I see you are from NZ, i am from auckland but currently living in Australia. Hope you are both well. Talk soon :)
I only have a one-way ticket, so I just emailed the agent who processed my visa for me (which got approved today btw, whoop!), and he said “You can travel on a one way ticket. You are not expected to hold a return ticket for two years time.”
A friend of mine said some people can get denied at customes, but only if you seem a bit suspect. but apparently we’ll all get asked lots of questions, eek! Sure it will be fine!
Not long now … :-D
Yes have a 1 ticket and going on the youth mobility visa for 2 years, we were told that a return ticket does not have to be booked yet as a open ticket is only valid for 1 year?
I am so excited I only have 79 sleeps until we fly out, looking forward to Disneyland on the way over :)
I’m on this tour as well, can’t to fly out! I’m getting to London a few days before the tour and I’m travelling around Europe some more afterwards as well, I got a 2 year visa.
So did you guys actually make a facebook group for this? mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
and hey Erin I was told the same thing, if you have a 2 year visa then you don’t have to book your a return flight.
Hey Tim, I dont think theres a facebook group yet but good to see more people are joining the tour :)
