Transport - Europe
Last Updated: 16th Feb 2011
Throughout Europe Contiki uses a fleet of modern, air-conditioned European and British coaches, the ultimate in comfort, safety and reliability with contoured seats, panoramic tinted windows and stereo sound systems. Many of our coaches are also equipped with European power outlets so you can charge your i-pod, MP-3 player, mobile phone, video or camera batteries on the road. (Please note: This is generally not available on our Regional Tours in Italy, Spain, Greece, Egypt and Turkey)
For the duration of the tour the coach is like your home on wheels and care should be taken to maintain its cleanliness. Contiki has no policy on seat rotations but you should try and mix amongst your fellow travelers as much a possible.
There are times when you Driver will have to have days or evenings off due to strictly enforced and regulated European driving regulations. There will possibly be a few occasions when public transport during your free time will be at your own expense.
Throughout Europe Contiki also uses trains and ferries according to your specific itinerary.
