Can the departure date or itinerary of a scheduled departure be changed for my group?
Unfortunately no. The departure dates and day-to-day itineraries for scheduled departures are set and cannot be changed. There are lots of departure date options to choose from and tons of free time built into our itineraries for your group to explore (or do other activities) on their own. If you require a specific date and have a group, take a look at ourcustom group options.
How long can I hold group space on a departure?
It depends on how popular the trip is, you may be able to hold it for a few days or a few months. With just a $200 deposit per person, you can lock in your group for the trip. Contiki reserves the right to release spaces if require due to availability.
Are there age restrictions?
Contiki’s scheduled departures are solely for young travellers between the ages of 18-35 (on the first day of travel). If you have a group of travellers outside of our age range (18-35), a custom trip can be arranged.
