Pick up and Drop off points & Times

There are no dedicated pick up points for flight tours. You will have to meet a Star Tours representative directly at the airport.

Weather

Weather in much of Western Europe tends to be the same as England and is very unpredictable. Regardless of the time of the year, it is advisable to carry an umbrella. Temperatures vary from place to place and it is a good idea to check online for average temperatures for the destination(s) being visited depending on the time of the year.On a multi destination tour it is likely passengers will travel through various weather fronts. Climate in Central Europe is of continental type. April - June and mid August - October. Temperatures reach about 20 - 25°C (68 - 77 Fahrenheit). July and August satisfy hot weather lovers, when temperatures reach up to 30 - 35°C (86 - 95 Fahrenheit).In the mountain areas the weather is usually cooler. Winter months between October and April are chilly and often snowy.Passengers can be well prepared by ensuring they are carrying appropriate clothing, footwear and accessories. Passengers should also be aware that during the winter months most of the sightseeing will be in the dark as, in Europe, the day becomes dark very early during winter. Passengers should consult with Star Tours at the time of booking if they are unsure.

Baggage

Baggage allowance will normally be 20kg – this will be dependent on the airline you are travelling with. Please ensure you adhere to current aviation regulations. Please remember that passengers’ will have to carry their luggage to and from the coach to the hotel room.

Clothing & Accessories

During summer months, it is advisable to wear light garments and perhaps keep a light jacket or sweater handy. It is advisable to carry a light waterproofjacket or umbrella, as well as a hat or cap.Passengers should also carry suitable footwear as per the itinerary of the tour e.g. comfortable trainers for a tour, which includes walking or suitable footwear/boots for excursions.Passengers should also carry travel adapters so they can charge their electronic items in their hotel room (as the sockets in Europe and elsewhere vary from those in the UK). Passengers may also want to carry a small travel iron, hair dryer, kettle etc, as many hotel rooms will not have these facilities.Your mobile phone may be able to receive calls whilst on holiday, you can check with your network operator to switch on the roaming feature of your mobile, there is usually an additional charge to receive incoming calls whilst aboard.Please ensure you carry all medication you will need on tour as well as names and doses of medications you are taking or copies of prescriptions.

Currency

In most of Central Europe the currency you will require will be Euros, however in Hungary you will require Hungarian forint, and in Poland you will require Polish zÅ‚oty. Passengers should exchange any spending money for their holiday before they actually travel. Whilst on tour it is very inconvenient and not all places you will visit will have ATM machines or accept credit/debit cards. We also advice our passengers to keep some change in coins on them whilst on tour as using toilets in many parts of Europe is not free

Children & Young Infants 

Car seats are not provided on coaches but passengers should carry car seats with travelling infants for comfort and safety.Milk and baby food cannot be provided by the hotel or restaurants and passengers are advised to carry ready to drink milk whilst on tour. Dry food is allowed on the so please feel free to bring snacks for children.Please also note that not all hotels provide a kettle so if hot water is required for warming milk etc in the hotel then it is advisable to carry a bottle warmer / kettle as well as a thermos flask.Pushchairs can be kept in the baggage lockers of the coach, although size restrictions may apply. We recommend that you consider using a pushchair for younger children – as the days are quite long and there is a lot of walking. 

Wheelchairs

We will accept light weight manual wheelchairs for travel, subject to them being capable of being stowed in the luggage hold of the coach.  It is also essential that a family member is also on the tour to push their wheelchair. Star Tour’s will also request hotels for suitably equipped rooms; however, this is only on a request basis and cannot be guaranteed.

Tour Managers

Professional tour managers & local guides accompany our tours throughout the itinerary, on rare occasions the Tour Manager may not meet passengers at their dedicated pick up point but at a later stage, the driver will be there to take care of any of the passengers’ needs.Your tour manager will accompany you to the sights, and be there to answer any questions you may have, and provide advice and assistance. If you have, any concerns please feel free to ask your tour manager whilst on tour. The tour manager and Tour guides will conduct the tours in English.Please ensure your tour manager has the mobile number that you are carrying with you on tour. The tour manager will provide passengers with their contact details for the duration of the tour on the first day.

In case you are separated from the group and need to make your way back to the hotel.

WC on coaches have limited capacities and therefore we advice passengers to use them only on an ‘emergency’ basis.All coaches are either air conditioned or air cooling systems. Only food which is dry and cold can be taken onto the coach. Curries, chips and other hot food are not allowed to be consumed on the coach. In addition, chewing gum and ice cream is also not allowed on the coach. Examples of food people bring to snack on include crisps, biscuits, indian dry snacks, drinks etc.

Alcohol consumption or smoking inc e-cigarettes are not permitted on the coach.

Seating Allocation

Please remember our staff cannot take requests for any seats. Seat numbers will be given to you, on day one of your tour. Passengers with children in their group will not be seated near the front due to EU regulations & company policy. Please note that all seats on the coach are the same, and have the same level of comfort, do not be disappointed if your seats are near the back of the coach. Your holiday experience will not be ruined due to this.

Distances & Journeys

An important point to note whilst on a touring holiday is that some long journeys are unavoidable especially when travelling from city to city. It is usually the case that the first and last days are the longest. Star Tours’ recommend passengers wear comfortable clothing on these days, and bear in mind that a major part of these days will be spent on the coach. It is advisable passengers carry necessities that they may need for the day such as water, dry snacks, cameras etc. with them in their hand luggage.

 Also on the first and last day passengers must carry their passports in their hand luggage as passports will be needed in immigration. 

Hotels

All hotels have a minimum, 3* category. Facilities will include en-suite bathroom, a TV and telephone. Some also include bars, restaurants and 24-hour reception. If you use services such as the phone or mini bar, or pay TV whilst in your room, you will have to pay the hotel directly when you check out; these services are not included in your tour cost.

Rooming Configuration

 Most of the hotels Star Tours use can only accommodate a maximum of three people in each room however if you are a family of four, i.e. two adults and two children, then your first child will be given an extra bed but the second child will be required to share the bed as no extra bed can be provided. The fourth bed is on request and is not guaranteed

Travel Insurance

Star Tours strongly recommends you purchase travel insurance.

Breakfast will be provided at the hotels. The breakfast is usually in a separate dining area of the hotel, and is usually an extended continental breakfast; it will include tea, coffee, breads, cereals, fruit Passengers can choose from different diets, including vegetarian, Jain or non-vegetarian (where possible Halal) meals it is important to note that Halal and Jain meals remain as requests. Passengers should advice their tour manager of their preferred diet on day one. The meals are pre-set buffet and a choice of menu is not available.

Additional Excursions

We design our itineraries so that all the necessary excursions and places of interest are included to give the passenger the best possible holiday at an affordable price. However, often, the tour manager and driver will offer passengers additional excursions that are designed to enhance the holiday experience and are not included in the tour cost.

Passengers are entitled to refuse any additional excursion. Only excursions listed in the additional excursions section of a tour can be conducted by a tour manager.
