    Hey guys, i was wondering if Contiki can still cancel your tour if they have already sent you the travel documents? (for reasons other than a natural disaster in the countries)

    Our trip is only 33 days away and we got the documents in the mail this week which is why i’m curious.

    No they wont if you get the documents it means they have enough people on the tour it will go ahead unless there is a disaster of some kind at the location you are going.

    I’m looking at the Great Britain Winter Tour for March 2. Does anyone know if they are cancelled often or has anyone ever had one cancelled?

    European Vista, November 14 2009, just cancelled today – what a huge piss-off – busy re-arranging our travel plans now!!

    i booked the Bridge to Reef tour for Nov 5th. I went to take a look at the trip again and the whole tour is missing. The girl from Contiki said it was still operating since they had enough people. I’m a little worried that it is actually cancelled. Has anybody had this experience?

    Goska84, i booked the ocean to outback tour and that tour was missing as well…i bet they are just working on the website or something. I would not worry about it too much.

    The vietnam explorer trip is no longer listed in asia trips, does this mean they have all been cancelled???

  • 16 Sep 2009 carly57 said


    Hey, Patchie, i just got an updated invoice for my Vietnam trip changing it from the Explorer into Vietnam Experience and giving a refund for the extra so I’m assuming they’re not doing the Explorer anymore! That’s one way to inform people!

    Hi Carly57 I was booked on the Vietnam Explorer for the 28th Dec but they have taken this itinerary out of the new brochure and are now offering the Vietnam Experience with a 3 day Sapa add on so it makes it the same tour as the Vietnam Explorer but is a lot cheaper. Talk to your travel agent and see if they can add on the 3 day Sapa trip for you. Cheers

    I had a phone call yesterday to say that Reefs and Rainforests starting 30th Nov has been cancelled… they’re currently trying to see if there’s anything else I can do in the dates I have but I doubt it as i’m on a tight schedule!

    I just booked the European Encounter tour that departs on the 21st May.

    This is not a definate tour. I emailed contiki to ask about the likely hood of this going ahead and they said they will not be able to tell me until 50days prior to the date at the latest.

    Should I choose a definate date instead? or should I stick with this one and hope it goes ahead??
