Concept Unique (Budget) Accommodation

Where you stay is one of the main differences between touring styles offered by Contiki in Europe. A Concept trip is all about mixing it up, so get ready to stay in everything from hotels and cabins, to hostels and special stopovers. Accommodation is twin-share (maximum quad share) and the majority of accommodations have private bathroom facilities.

What’s a Special Stopover?

It’s accommodation exclusively for Contiki travellers, managed by our dedicated, onsite crew. We choose unique & traditional places in fantastic locations. Like a 16th century Chateau in France, a Swiss Chalet at the foot of the breathtaking Alps, an Austrian Gasthof & a beach resort hotel in Corfu. Some have recently been upgraded, plus they have great facilities like big screen plasma TVs, pools, bars, nightclubs and plenty of internet access.

  • Our French Chateau
    It’s big. It’s grand. It’s beautiful. And it’s ‘oh so French’. Our very own 16th century Chateau de Cruix overlooks the vineyards of the Beaujolais region. It’s the perfect place to picnic, chill out by the pool, try local wines at Contiki’s cuvage & party in our nightclub. Exclusive to Contiki travellers and upgraded even further in 2009.
  • Our Swiss Chalet
    Stay in Contiki’s cosy wooden Chalet, in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Set in a spectacular glacial valley at the foot of the Jungfrau Mountain (4158m/13,641ft), it’s exclusive to Contiki travellers. Upgraded in 2009 with new lounge, dining room, outdoor area & big flat screen TVs. There’s also the ‘Bomb shelter’ bar with famous theme parties.
  • Our Austrian Gasthof
    The scenery’s so beautiful in the Tyrol region, it’ll leave you lost for words. Stay at our traditional Gasthof (guesthouse) in the picturesque township of Hopfgarten. If you’re thirsty after a hard days mountain biking, there’s a well-loved bar to come home to. Exclusive to Contiki travellers.
  • Corfu Resort
    The Corfu Village Hotel is located just 20m from door to the beach & watersports. Every room has it’s own private balcony with great sunset & sea views. Lounge poolside at the pool bar, try tasty Greek food at one of many local restaurant nearby & have fun at the renowned toga party. Our Contiki Reps are onsite to shortcut you to the best action on the island.

Contiki Villages
Our cabins are located in Contiki Villages, each with their own Contiki-designated area within great quality campsites. Many cabins are brand new, twin-share & have private facilities inside, including hot showers.

We’ve chosen some of the newest youth hostels available, with hotel-like facilities like Plus Prague Hostel and Wombats Hostel, Berlin.

Pay a budget price. Then get top value with an upgrade to hotel standard accommodation on some nights.
