Questions related to Winter Slovakia Family Holiday

Are there many restaurants in the village near the Pension?

When staying at Pension Pribisko the restaurants are within fifteen minutes walking distance. There are a selection of four to five places to eat ranging from a traditional restaurant to a pizza restaurant. Average price for dinner is approximatly ten to fifteen euro per dish depending on the type of establishment.

If you are staying at Hotel Julianin Dvor then we usually organize a transfer to the centre of the village where there are a selection of restaurants as the walk would take approx 30 minutes.

What are the transfer arrangements for Vienna - Zuberec?

The easiest option for your transfer is to meet at Vienna airport and transfer with the group. However if this is not possible, private transfers are pre-bookable and cost approximately £130 one-way for a taxi that can take up to four people.

Questions related to General Information

What's not included in the price?

Generally anything not listed in the itinerary. This includes optional tours and excursions, some meals, visas, vaccinations, excess baggage charges, porterage at hotels, insurance, international and entry/departure taxes overseas, and things of a personal nature such as drinks, tips, room service charges, phone calls, etc. As well as any new government taxes or price increases for hotels, transportation and airfares implemented after the tour programme for this brochure was costed.  

What's included within the trip price?

Everything listed within the itinerary is included; accommodation, on-tour transport, the services of a group leader and local guides, entrance fees, excursions and activities, as well as a number of meals. See your Trip Notes for full details. Transfers to and from the airport in-country are also included for those on Group Flights, as well as a mandatory ATOL Protection Charge of £2.50 which protects your booking. 

What do I take with me?

See your Trip Notes, these have a detailed packing list. On most international flights you're restricted to twenty kilograms baggage and we recommend you always pack light. Generally hard suitcases are not suitable.

If I book late is it cheaper?

No, it is not a package with charter flights and accommodation, whereas if there is spare capacity the price is reduced to ensure it fills up.

With small group adventures flights and ground arrangements are reserved separately, due to the flexibility involved. On most trips we have a contract with a preferred airline and an allocation of flights at a special rate. However from between 1-3 months before departure, depending on the airline, we have to hand back our unused allocation. Therefore we have to buy airline tickets on the open market, which can result in flight supplements.

This point is even more prevalent for family trips, where demand for flights is high during the school holidays. Therefore reserving places late is likely to include high flight supplements.

Speak to a Travel Consultant for more information, but the rule of thumb is it’s best to reserve your place earlier.  

Can I book a trip without flights?

Yes you can do this on every trip.

Can I organise a trip with just my friends or family?

Yes, just let us know your chosen trip and we can organise a private departure. Prices may vary from those given on the website, depending on the size of the group and date of departure.

What is a group adventure?

The average group size is between 6-12, although groups can be larger or smaller than this. Generally they will be of all ages and from all walks of life. However, you will have similar interests and the shared experiences on the itinerary soon bring everyone together.

What is the accommodation going to be like?

Accommodation is clean, simple and choosen for its value for money, location and atmosphere. You'll mainly stay in twin rooms which have private facilities within small, locally-run, 2-3 star hotels and guesthouses, which reflect the character of the area. Sometimes though you'll stay in larger, more comfortable hotels or occasionally rustic accommodation with basic facilities. In such we also try and incorporate unique accommodation experiences, such as a night with a local tribe, or sleeping under the stars in the desert.

There are also camping options on several of our trekking and wildlife trips, for which all equipment is provided, but it might be necessary to bring personal gear such as sleeping bags.

Accommodation commences on the first night of the "without flights" itinerary until check-out on the day of departure. Please note accommodation on all trips are subject to change.

How knowledgeable and experienced is the Group Leader in general?

The local guides undergo extensive training in all aspects of travel in the region. They are full-time professionals and are selected for their empathy and knowledge of the area you are visiting. 

 

Is there a maximum age?

All of our trips are designed to be accessible to anyone with a good level of fitness. If you are travelling on one of our southern Africa tours and are aged 65 or over, you will need to provide a medical certificate signed by your doctor.
