    I haven’t gotten my travel docs yet… stupid united states postal service. lol. I know most of you are from Canada, so this bit of news might not help, but if you have a Bank of America account you can use your debit card at BNL atm in Rome with NO fees. Thats what I’m doing. Alex (my fiance) and I have been practicing choice Italian words and phrases. I’m so excited!!

    Did anyone else get an email about needing passport info for a temporary visa into Turkey? It had the Contiki logo, but I wasn’t sure if it was a scam, and I thought I’d ask you guys if anyone else got the email. I’m planning on calling the main Contiki line to inquire about this. I thought it was strange that they just wanted me to email back all that sensitive info…

  • 14 Apr 2012 Jacquie said


    I didn’t get that email. And I thought we were supposed to get our visa at the Turkish border?? Does anyone know for sure?

  • 14 Apr 2012 Vinny! said


    No I have not gotten that email, definitely call Contiki!

  • 15 Apr 2012 lou_85 said


    I’ve been told we get it at the border on arrival into Turkey… I didn’t get an email.

    Does anyone know if we need adapters for our electronics? Super stoked for this trip. The semester just ended. Final exams then it’s party time :))

  • 15 Apr 2012 Vinny! said


    I think that we do need them and I am in the same boat.. few more days for me! Thursday is the day!
    you can probably get that kind of thing at Best Buy or some other electronic store

    Hi Guys, I’ve booked this trip back in Sept and can’t wait to go. Will be leaving ay 7th, 2012. I will be flying out of Toronto and traveling solo on this one. Looking forward to meeting you all :). I did buy a power Eurpoe Adapter at Walmart was under 20 bucks. I just checked in and signed up on line today 22 Day’s to go!!

  • 15 Apr 2012 Vinny! said


    I will be flying out of Toronto as well! What/when is your flight?

  • 15 Apr 2012 alsrmt said


    We’re flying out of Toronto on Air Transat Sunday May 6th at 9:10 pm so we’ll have an extra day to get over the jet lag can’t wait!!

  • 15 Apr 2012 Jacquie said


    I’m also flying out of Toronto. Direct to Rome leaving May 7th at 7:15pm, and arriving at Rome at 9:45 am May 8th. I’m flying with Air Canada/Lufthansa.

  • 15 Apr 2012 Jacquie said


    And to Lisa: if your electronics you want to use say 110-240v then all you need is a plug adapter because your electronic can handle the extra voltage (220-240 in Europe vs 100-110 in North America). If, however, your electronics do not have the range up to 240, then you will need an electrical current converter, which is much heavier and more expensive.

    My tablet, phone, ipod and hair straightener all are okay to use with just an adapter (I have also used these in Europe with the same adaptor I’m bringing – I got mine from Walmart, also – its white and red too!)

    Hi Jacquie and Vinny…My flight is 7:15pm on May 7th with Air Canada direct to Rome. I hope they don’t strike my name is Deanne :). I really can’t wait. I think my flight is the same as Jacquie.

  • 16 Apr 2012 Jacquie said


    Yay! I think it is too! Do you know what flight number it is? Mine’s LH5353. But seriously, how many flights would be leaving the same time for the same destination ;-). How are you planning on getting from the airport in Rome to the hotel?
