    TRAVEL TIPS:Classic Christmas Markets

    Listed below is important information to assist you in preparing for your upcoming trip. This information provided will help you have a more enjoyable experience while you are on your tour.

    Accommodations

    On some programs, there are a limited number of single and triple rooms. Double rooms usually consist of 2 beds. Triple rooms are normally a standard double room with 2 beds. A cot or rollaway bed may be added to the double room at some hotels, based on room size and fire codes. When triples are not available, appropriate charges for single and twin accommodations will be assessed.

    We make every effort to accommodate your specific requests and forward them to the hotels. These requests cannot be guaranteed as hotels may not always be able to honor them.

    Check-in times are set by individual hotel properties and vary by hotel. Depending on your arrival time, there may be a delay in gaining access to your room as most hotels offer afternoon check-in. We ask guests to observe check-out times at all properties as designated by the hotel.

    Some hotels require a credit card imprint or your passport information upon check-in in order to activate telephones in the rooms and for potential incidental charges. Most hotels charge an access fee for using phones in hotel rooms. Please check with the front desk personnel at each hotel for specific policies.

    Hotel membership programs are not applicable.

    In certain countries, hotel rooms tend to be smaller than standard U.S. accommodations. Please be assured that we use high quality properties throughout each country.

    ADA

    The Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply outside of thenor its suppliers may physically lift or assist clients onto transportation vehicles.

    We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance to a tour member who has special mobility, dietary or other like needs.

    Arrival Day Suggestions

    Due to varied flight schedules and arrival times of our tour guests, there aren't any scheduled activities prior to dinner on Day 1. Should your flight schedule allow for an early arrival, enjoy this opportunity for some independent exploration.

    If you are staying post tour, your Tour Manager will be available to offer suggestions for your additional time in the area.

    Clothing & Packing Tips

    If you are taking prescription medication, please be sure to take an adequate supply for your tour and a few additional days, in original prescription containers. Medication should be packed in your carry-on baggage. Do not place it in your checked luggage. You may want to carry an extra prescription in a separate bag in case medication is lost.

    Currency

    The currency in Germany, Austria and France is the Euro.

    Your personal bank card should work at local ATM machines in the destination you are traveling to and would dispense local currency. Please contact your bank to determine if this option is available, that your PIN will be accepted, to inform them that you are traveling and to determine if any charges apply for each transaction.

    You may exchange your money at airports, banks, exchange bureaus, and at some hotels (although the exchange rate and fee is usually higher at hotels). In most cases, a commission charge will be assessed to exchange your money. Locations in the city usually offer a better currency exchange rate than airports.

    We recommend carrying only a few major credit cards. Credit card purchases often provide an extra guarantee on your purchase (check with your specific credit card company for details and fees). It is advisable to contact any credit card company you intend utilizing while on tour before you depart to notify them where you will be traveling, to avoid any rejection of services.

    While it may be handy to have some small bills in US Dollars for tipping, local sellers expect to be paid in Euro. Local currency will be needed for lunches, gratuities and small items such as postcards and postage.

    Typically, the rate you can get from your bank will be better than that offered at a local moneychanger (barring high fees charged by your bank). However, be aware that these days’ credit card companies are charging “international transaction fees” for purchases made abroad.

    If optional tours are made available to purchase, please note that credit cards must have an expiration date of greater than 30 days from the start of the tour.

    Disclaimer

    Any person entering or leaving the EU and carrying cash of a value of €10,000 or more must declare it. The term "cash" includes currency notes, coins, bankers' drafts, checks and travelers' cheques.

    Travelers who fail to declare any amount over €10,000 will face stiff sanctions and could face penalties of as much as €8,000.

    Electricity

    An adaptor (which changes the physical plug) and/or converter (which changes the electric current) are necessary if you plan to use an appliance with voltage different from the standard within the country you are visiting. Please note, if your appliance has dual voltage you may still need an adaptor for the plug.

    When packing your electronic items for travel, please review the converter electric current level to make sure it is the same or greater than the items you are planning on using. If you plan on utilizing or transporting a sleep apnea machine, please remember to pack an extension cord and adapter plug to ensure proper function.

    Helpful Hints

    Bring a camera, memory cards, film and batteries and be sure to bring enough photography supplies for your entire trip. If you have a video camera, bring an extra battery, plus proper recharging equipment. Due to security screening, we recommend storing your equipment in your carry-on luggage.

    Bring a travel alarm clock, travel sewing kit and an alcohol based gel hand sanitizer when soap and water is not accessible.

    Pack items that may leak in plastic bags. Do not pack any articles of value in your checked luggage.

    As a precaution, we suggest that you divide the contents of your suitcase with your traveling companion.

    Avoid over packing and leave room for souvenirs that you plan to take back home.

    Bring a copy of your passport/identification and pack it separately from the original.

    Leave a copy of your tour itinerary at home with your emergency contact and a copy of your passport.

    Remember when flying you can only take one quart size bag with no more than 3 ounces of any one liquid. Liquids that do not fit in the one quart size bag and are larger than 3 ounces will be discarded by security.

    Remember to hydrate and get up and stretch while flying.

    If you are considering using your cell phone while traveling internationally, you should check with your cell provider concerning their access and charges for overseas calls, texting and emailing for the specific destination you are traveling to.

    Luggage

    Please consult with your scheduled airline as luggage fees and restrictions vary by carrier and destination. Due to the limited motorcoach capacity, one checked luggage (62 inches in length, height and width; weight not to exceed 23kg/50lbs) is allowed on tour.

    We also encourage just one carry-on bag per individual (for carrying items that might be needed during the day’s sightseeing excursions or camera/video equipment). Dimensions for carry-on bags should not exceed 17" x 12" x 10", allowing it to fit under the seat or in the overhead rack of most motor coaches.

    If you exceed the limit of 2 bags, we cannot guarantee that your additional luggage will be able to fit in the touring vehicle. Storage or shipment of additional luggage will be at your own expense. If we are able to accommodate your additional luggage, we will assess a fee of 4 US dollars per bag per hotel. Please remember to label your luggage and important items with your name, home address and telephone number.

    We recommend labeling your luggage on both outside and inside of the bag.

    Please attach only the plastic luggage tag included in this mailing to your checked luggage before checking in for your flight.

    Your paper luggage tag is to be attached at the first hotel.

    We cannot assume liability or accept claims for loss or damage to luggage and personal effects due to breakage, theft or normal wear and tear that results from hotel, airline and group carrier handling. It is in your best interest to have adequate insurance (such as our comprehensive “No Worries Travel Protection”) to cover these eventualities.

    Meals

    Your itinerary indicates which meals are included on your tour. Please take a moment to review. Guests with special dietary requirements must advise their Customer Care Agent as early as possible to ensure that the restaurants are given ample notice. Also, please advise your Tour Manager at the beginning of your tour. Your requests are important to us, and we make every effort to accommodate these requests.

    Please be advised that the average price for meals (not inclusive of tax and gratuity) in where you are traveling is as follows: lunch 10 to 25 US dollars and dinner 25 to 40 US dollars.

    Tipping is rarely necessary as restaurants normally include a service charge. However, many locals may leave extra change to acknowledge good service.

    Name Badges

    Included in this package is your personalized name badge. Our guests wear these in order to get to know their fellow travelers. The name badge also ensures that a Collette representative can easily recognize you, particularly in crowds and at the airport upon arrival.

    Reading List

    As you prepare for your trip, reading is the perfect way to learn about the culture, people and history of your destination and know before you go. We have a list of pre selected travel guides, novels and books about history, nature and art that will enhance your travel experience. You can access the complete list by typing the following into your web browser. Select the region of the world to find your tour: http://www.longitudebooks.com/find/d/7549/r/CV/mcms.html

    Seat Belts

    The European Union (EU) has adopted a directive (2003/20EU) regarding the compulsory wearing of seatbelts while traveling on your vehicle when equipped. Failure to comply could result in a PERSONAL fine of up to Euro 750. Collette will NOT issue refunds to passengers who may be fined for non-compliance. Our tour managers will remind you again while on tour, but we feel that advising you in advance is beneficial.

    Smoking

    Our tours are non-smoking throughout.

    If you require a smoking room, please alert your agent upon tour booking.

    Please be mindful of locations where smoking is prohibited: the motorcoach, at dining venues and other restricted areas on tour including most hotels. Customers are responsible for any fines incurred for failure to comply with smoking restrictions.

    Time Zone

    All countries on this tour are 6 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time.

    Transportation

    Flight Information, Departure Taxes & Fees

    Land Only Vacations:

    Please provide us with your flight schedules for the entire tour six weeks prior to departure so we may secure services if you purchased transfers from us, as well as maintain emergency contact.

    Air Inclusive Vacations

    Air inclusive vacations cover air transport to and from your origin gateway as well as all internal air segments on tour.

    In order to comply with Homeland Security’s “Secure Flight” mandate, all passengers must provide full name, date of birth and gender at time of reservation. Your airline ticket must match the name on your valid, non-expired, government issued photo ID to be shown at the airport (including middle name, first or middle initial).

    If you are a member of a participating frequent flyer program, provide the number upon booking and retain the passenger copy of your ticket and boarding pass to ensure that you receive proper credit of your mileage.

    Some air tickets are not eligible for mileage accrual.

    Whenever possible, we will add charges for air departure taxes to your invoice. Some international arrival and departure fees are not included in your air ticket and must be paid by you on tour in local currency.

    Transfers

    We are pleased to provide you with complimentary airport to hotel, and hotel to airport transfers at the beginning and end of an escorted tour when you purchase an air-inclusive tour.

    Land-only clients who have purchased round trip transfers will be accommodated at the same times as air inclusive clients.

    Arrival meeting locations and transfer departure times are provided on your document booklets.

    On some programs there may be a waiting period at the airport due to varying flight schedules of other arriving guests.

    If you have secured your own transfer, you may meet your Tour Manager at the hotel.

    Motorcoach Information: We do not own or operate vehicles. We charter quality coaches that are temperature controlled vehicles. Coach size may vary based upon the number of tour patrons. In certain countries, lavatory equipped motorcoaches are not available or the lavatory is for emergency use only.

    Frequent stops will be made en route for comfort and convenience.

    Seat Rotation: Seats are rotated for the benefit of our tour guests. This fosters communication and enables our guests to enjoy a variety of vantage points on the motorcoach. Guests will rotate seats at least once a day, as directed by the Tour Manager. In fairness to all, there will be no exceptions to this policy.
