Grand Southern 2015 Money Tips & Advice

16 Feb 2014 Tildsley_92 asked


I Know it's still nearly a year away but I am planning to go on the Grand Southern in January 2015 and I was wandering what is the minimum amount someone should bring (Especially considering we go to Vegas & how should we access our money.
This will be my first ever holiday overseas so kind of new to it all.

Also is there anybody else who is thinking about going on this tour?

    Does this one leave on the 8th Jan? Myself and three other girls have booked to do the first section (LA – New Orleans)! Any info on what to pack for winter and how much money to take would be greatly appreciated! This will be our first Contiki :)

    Do you know anyone who has been on this tour and how much did they spend Approx.?

    Also how long does it take to receive your confirmation email from conitki?

    I booked through Flight Centre.

    My mate said it cost him about $4,000AUD and he came back with money – but seeing as VEGAS is involved I plan to take $8,000 :)
