What's available in the Contiki (Europe)Bus?
It mentions there's power available for charging. would this be a travel adapter style for all countries? I also read there's toilets on board, is that for all Contiki buses? any TV on board or definitely bring our own entertainment?

They are european buses, so you need europe plugs or adaptors to charge anything…. they do have toilets on board but are for emergencies only, ie they dont like you using them….
No tv on board so if you dont sleep on long drives bring your own entertainment!!
and the toilets are usually if u need to use them for #1’s but u stop every 2-3 hours anyway for a break
The Power adaptors are european. They do not like you using the toilets unless absolutely necessary. There is no TV so you will need to bring an ipod. My group slept most of the bus trips anyway.
Sleeping after a long night out is def the best way to pass the bus time!! I reckon I did more sleeping in the bus than in any hotel!! :P
the drivers can only empty the toilets at certain stops, we had alot of people who just used the toilets because they were there instead of only emergencies as requested and it ended up that the driver had to lock the toilet up (because it was full) and so there would be a few days where no one could use it at all even for emergencies!!
did many people bring pillows??
Nearly everyone had them, or if they didn’t got some along the way!! Best investment!!!! :D
Essentials for the bus: Neckpillow, Earplugs and an Eyemask (also really good for using on your flights).
what size suit case can you take?
a suit case for the bus trip? if you are on the bus for only one day you dont need a lot of stuff. just a small purse/bag…
Our bus on Simply Italy had TV screens on it. Our tour manager played movies that featured the locations we were about to visit (Under the Tuscan Sun, Gladiator, etc). Aside from those times, the screens weren’t used. I don’t remember seeing any power plugs but I suppose that doesn’t mean they weren’t there.
