    Alrighty, Nazza1 from what im told by family over there the weather gets to be pretty hot, especially in the mediterranean countries. If you click on the “CONTIKIPEDIA” link there is a pretty good Europe Summer Packing List so i’ve heard.

    As for Alan my travel agent in Perth made all my arrangements for me. They had all the information at a click of the button even if you don’t.

    I heard that certain countries are guarenteed, particular allocations of tickets… and if they dont get filled it gets offered to those on the waiting list… but this could just be a rumour!

    sure its teh contrasts ur lookin at? is it a longer tour ur doing? the contrasts is only 29 days

  • 4 Dec 2007 tequila_boi said


    Ok Ok i see the problem here… For us Aussies when we book its the 29th departure as our tour starts as our first day being LONDON>DOVER>PARIS.

    Where as day one on the site is… get to Europe and Day two is Check into your hotel… thus technically the tour for us starts the 29th we just do not get the hotel accommodation inclusion. We are expected to find out own place to stay pre departure… i believe that is where the difference lies…

    Cause my travel agent has confirmed the 29th as tour start date!!!

    haha thats soo true yet sooo werid at the same time!! i donno if i get free hotel for the days im early if not im, gunna stay with my friend who is living in london.
