5 Things to know on an Expat Comfort Tour!

1. Age Groups


Expat ‘Comfort’ tours welcome people of all ages as long as you are fit, healthy and young at heart!

The average age of Expat tour groups is 40. Usually between 20 to 45 years of age, however, this average is going up as Expat tours become more popular with
“older travellers” who are still young at heart are most definitely welcome – a positive attitude and an open mind are more important than a
number. Tours are not suitable for very young children, so a minimum age limit of 10 years old is set.


2.  Accommodation 

Expat have searched and invested in excellent budget options of 2 and 3 star hotels, either located in cities or well placed with public transport connections. Accommodation is provided in twin share en-suite rooms and clean linen is always included.  If you are a single traveller, you will be placed in a same-gender twin room with another traveller. Should you want your own room you are welcome to choose the single supplement option.


 3. What is included in the tour price?

The tour price includes accommodation for the duration of your Expat tour, transport by private coach, breakfasts and
dinner as per your tour itinerary, ferry crossings (where applicable), guided walking tours and excursions as per your
tour itinerary. As well as this, you will have a tour leader to assist you along the way with great tips and handy advice!


 4. How much time will be spent on the coach?

Many of the countries are vast and varied and there will be some long driving days on your tour. This gives you
the opportunity to enjoy watching the changing countryside as it rolls past your window, to share music with your
fellow travellers, watch a few movies or get involved in some of the games and quizzes hosted by your tour
leader. Where possible, there are also included stops at points of interest for you to take in.


 5. What should I pack?

The weather is always unpredictable and will depend on the time of year you are travelling. As a general rule,
you will need comfortable shoes, as there will be a lot of walking on the tours, a towel, as not all of the hotels will
supply you with one and a watch and an alarm clock are essential items as time keeping is very important on tour.
You will create memories you will want to treasure forever so please don’t forget to bring spare memory cards
for your camera, and a relevant adapter so you can recharge the batteries. Add to that your passport, visas and a
sense of adventure and you are ready to go!
