Europe Travel Q&A

  • Do I Need a Visa to Travel to Europe?

    Visa requirements vary depending on your nationality and port of entry. You may be able to enjoy the benefits of 90-day visa exemption in the 26 countries currently participating in the Schengen Visa agreement, but please confirm this with the relevant immigration authorities well in advance. Also keep in mind that to enjoy Schengen visa exemption status, your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond the intended date of departure. If the airline or airport immigration finds that your passport does not meet this requirement, you may be denied boarding or entry. Most Departments of State recommend that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the date of departure.

  • Do You Provide a Visa Letter?

    Tours4Fun does not offer this service or any assistance applying for visas, unfortunately. The embassies/consulates of some nations may accept a confirmed and printed e-ticket as proof of travel for leisure and tourism purposes. Please keep in mind that we only send the e-ticket once a booking has been confirmed and paid in full. We do not send itineraries for the purpose of visa applications while the booking remains in unpaid and/or unconfirmed status. A few of our local operators do provide a visa letter upon request; please enquire with our customer service team regarding your specific itinerary.

  • Should I Buy Travel Insurance?

    Most definitely, yes. Firstly, hotels and tour operators are not responsible for the loss or theft of any personal item and/or valuable belonging, regardless of where they were left or who was placed in charge of their care. Secondly, accidents happen, even during the best of holidays; most domestic health insurance plans do not cover medical treatment in foreign countries. Good travel insurance covers both of these eventualities and more. And thirdly, planning six months in advance can signfiicantly diminish the price of an attractive European tour package, but also leaves you more susceptible to unforeseeable events that force you to change or even cancel your travel plans. As most early-bird promotions are non-refundable, with no insurance you're setting yourself up to lose a sizeable amount. Most travel insurance plans cover the cost of canceling all or part of your trip due to sudden illness, a serious injury, and other events beyond your control.

  • Do Your Tours Include Airfare?

    We do have European tour packages that include flights from select airports in the United States; however, most of our packages do not include the flight from home country to your dream destination in Europe. Needless to say, budget airlines such as WestJet, WOW Air, Norwegian, and Air Berlin are making it more and more affordable to fly into Europe from ports overseas. For those flying into Europe from Asia, cheap flight options are popping up left and right, from operators in Anatolia and the Middle East - Turkish, Qatar, Ethihad, and Emirates - as well as airlines serving the Far East: China Southern, China Eastern, and Air China among others. Great deals can be had on round trip flights to Germany and Denmark, if you know where to look.

  • How Much Luggage is Too Much?

    As a rule, anything over one piece of luggage per person is too much, especially if you're planning to travel by motorcoach. Even before you arrive, keep in mind that European airlines are very strict about the Weight and Dimensions of a carry-on item. A small suitcase that exceeds the weight or dimensions of a standard carry-on will be counted as a check-in item - something to keep in mind when booking a flight with a budget airline. Most multi-day tour bus operators in Europe allow passengers to check in one piece of luggage only, not to exceed 30 kilograms (about 66 pounds)! If you've booked a tour in a small van or mini-coach, the weight regulation could be as strict as 20 kilograms (about 44 pounds) max. So pack light, and don't bring bulky items like space heaters or inflatable rafts ... just kidding ... sort of.

  • What is a Tourist Tax and Why is it Not Included?

    Ah yes, the pesky and increasingly prevalent Tourist Tax. To make a long story short, growing visitor counts in Europe have placed an ever-increasing strain on infrastructure in European cities, whose medieval quarters and narrow alleyways were already buckling from the weight of local traffic, compelling said cities to collect from visitors a per person tax based on the number of nights and classification of their hotel - B'n'B, 3-star hotel, 4-star hotel, and so on - payable directly to the hotel at check-in. Because the amount is constantly changing, and the tax is collected separate from the hotel bill, our local partners are not able to include the tax in the display price. Just think of it as your small contribution towards the restoration and maintenance of Europe's distinctive urban heritage.
