A question for my fellow aussie travellers, what are you doing about spending money? Using a visa card/carrying cash/travellers cheques?? Im thinking a combination of all might be good?
I was going to get a 28 degrees credit card, no international fees and all the business ad you can top up with your own money then cancel it when you get back (if you haven’t got anything owing on it of course)
Thanks Rhychelle, I will check it out.
Hey guys, I’ve just booked this trip. I’m Nick i’m about 4 hours north of Sydney Australia and i’m 18. This is my first time overseas. Just hoping to meet people before the tour starts, i’m gonna be in London before and after the tour so if people want to meet up and hang out i’m keen. Is anyone else staying at the Royal National Hotel?
My husband and I are 25 and from the Gold Coast, we are doing the Contiki as our honeymoon and it will be our first time in Europe. We are staying at the Royal National from the 16th September.
Awww cool! I’m getting there on the 18th at like 7:30 in the morning
Hey nick and Renee I’m staying at the royal national too on the 18th about the same time as nick actually.
I would also look into getting yourself a cash passport visa card, there fantastic, can top your money up at any time and your using your own money so you don’t have to worry about credit card bills at the end of your holiday :) feel free to add me on fb if you like so we can get to know everyone or possibly meet up before the tour starts. Ps 22 days now!!!!
Hey Kat thanks for the advice :) we are probably on the same flight out of Sydney haha yeah I want to meet people before the tour starts.
Travers and i are arriving in London on Friday 16th and staying at the Royal National. We are looking at using a Travel Money Card from the Commonealth bank which you can load with Euros or GB Pounds. Has anyone booked accomodation after the tour?
Hey Trav and Matt I’ve booked accomodation from the 10th to the 13th after the tour. I’m just staying at the Royal National
Hey everyone! Is anybody staying on in Amsterdam after the tour? Me and my sister, Ilana, will be there till the 13th and would love to have people to hang with. Can’t wait to meet you all
I will be arrive on the 18th also, and would love to meet all of you before! And I also have booked the last night of the tour at the royal national.
