Questions & Answers

Question: Where on your Website may I find how to obtain an Australian VISA??

Unfortunately we do not work with getting visas. You will be responsible for visas on your own. For additional guidance, please contact your booking agent who will be able to provide this information to you or give us a call at 1-800-935-2620 and any of our travel consultants can help.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
