Why book a Contiki tour?

Are flights included?

Flights as specified on individual trip itineraries are included as part of the price. Flights to and from the Start/End destinations are not included, however you can speak to one of our friendly travel experts who can help you book return flights that fit in with your tour departure dates.

Can I travel solo?

Yes! Infact, we'd encourage you to as it's the perfect way of diving into a new adventure and meeting like-minded travellers. Most Contiki tours will also have other solo travellers coming from all over the world so you won't be alone. Remember: something amazing always happens in between that moment of leaving comfort and confronting fear. #NoRegrets

Why book my Contiki tour with STA Travel?

We  have been BFF for years! They are the world’s leading youth tour company and we are the world’s leading youth travel agency. We were meant to be.

What do Contiki Tours include?

Contiki tours are a great way of exploring a country without the added hassle of booking transport and accommodation from location to location as this is already included as part of the price. Some accommodation will also include breakfast and dinner but can vary depending on the tour. All tours include a mixture of sight-seeing, group activities and free time to explore each location visited.

What's a ME time optional?

ME time optionals are one of the ways you can make the most of your free time while on tour. Each trip has it's own unique selection of exciting optional activities to take part in which are organised by your very own tour manager. There's everything from hot air ballooning to bungee jumping!

What else can STA Travel assist me with?

We’re your one stop shop and can help with the flights, accommodation, insurance and everything else you need before you head away on your Contiki.
