Global Coach Tours Useful information!

 Global Coach Tours

 

1.What's the difference between a cheaper tour and a more expensive tour that appears to cover the same route?

There are more included excursions and meals on first class tours and the hotels are generally better quality and in the best locations for sightseeing. Budget and CostSaver tours often use hotels away from the centre of towns.

2. Are there any discounts available?

We will calculate the best discount available for you where you are eligible for one. e.g. child, triple share, group or early payment.

3. Is there any overnight travel and how long do we spend on the bus?

Most tours travel during the daytime only. Departures can be early and are often very early on the first day when leaving from London. Comfort stops will be made every 2-3 hours or by request. There is rarely any travel longer than 3 hours without a stop for sightseeing or a break. Tours are all planned and well paced to maximize sightseeing.

4. What are the coaches like?

All tour buses are late model executive coaches with reclining seats, air conditioning (some lower prices tours in the UK and Ireland may just have forced air). The windows are large and panoramic. Seat belts are fitted. All first class and premium touring coaches have on board washrooms. Many UK and European buses have both an entrance at the front and another one in the middle, so everyone can board quicker.

5. How do we book optional excursions?

Optional tours are reserved through the tour director whilst on board and cannot be pre-booked before you leave unless this is specifically stated. However, sightseeing in London before and after your tour can be pre-booked via our partners.

6.What time do the tours depart?

London Departutures: For Trafalgar and Insight tours leaving London they all depart between 5.30am and 7.30am. You must phone the London reception centre a couple of days before to confirm the time and central London meeting point. Expat Explore Tours leave from Greenwich. Cosmos tours leaving from London and heading for a Dover to Calais ferry crossing, depart from the Novotel London West in Hammersmith at 8.45am and return around 5pm. For all other operators and tours leaving from locations other than London, please ask. We offer some tours with and without flights.

7.Where do we use the Euro € ?

?The 19 countries of the eurozone are Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuiania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain. They have switched to using euro notes and coins, ending the use of their national currencies in shops and banks. The currency consists of seven notes from five to five hundred euros (careful if you get that one!) and eight coins from 1 cent to 2 euros. A euro is divided into 100 cents. The euro is also being used in Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, the Vatican, and French overseas territories including Martinique and Guadalupe in the Caribbean and Reunion in the Indian Ocean.

8.Where you might not be able to use the Euro.

Denmark, Sweden and the UK and some recent members of the EU in the east of Europe have not yet adopted the euro - however, they have not ruled out joining in future. The euro may be accepted by major retailers in the UK and Switzerland. So on your tour of Europe it's now much easier to shop and you won't have to keep changing money as your travel.
 
Denmark do not accept Euros at the moment.
