Things To Know Before You Go

We are excited to welcome you on your APT tour soon. Below you will find a list of handy tips and tricks, covering everything from what to pack to changing your booking, as well as links to your destination or travel style specific guide to touring with APT.

Top Tips for Travelling with APT

We highly recommend that you obtain comprehensive medical and travel insurance to cover your entire time away from home. Be sure to pack your policy in case you need to make a claim while travelling. It is also worth adding your insurance policy details and flight numbers to your Tour Personaliser, so all your important travel information is in once place.
One week before your tour you will receive all the documents required ahead of your trip via email, including any flights and hotel reservations made with APT.

If you have a food allergy or medical condition which needs to be managed on tour, please advise your Booking Agent before departure, and inform your Tour Director on arrival. It is also worth packing a small medical kit, as even though there will be pharmacies along your tour, they can be difficult to access, and a prescription may be required for some medications.

Suggested Packing List:

  • A general-purpose antibiotic (e.g. azithromycin)
  • Cold and flu medication
  • Your preferred pain medication
  • Medicine for gastronomic upsets
  • Band aids and blister pads
Economy class flights usually allows between 25-30kg per person, though you will need to check this with your flight provider. Note – most of our tours only allow between 16kg and 20kg of luggage. When packing, we recommend casual and comfortable clothing. Consider the season of the destination you are travelling too, even in summer many destinations get cooler in the evenings, so it is a good idea to pack a jumper.
