Top Tips for Travelling with APT

All passengers are required to possess a passport valid for at least 6 months after the conclusion of their trip. You should always carry your passport and other travel documents in your hand luggage.
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 one 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 are bringing appliances from home an adapter suitable for your destination countries socket and voltage will be needed.

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

The majority of APT tours only allow 16kg to 20kg of luggage. When packing, consider the season of the destination you are travelling to, even in summer many destinations get cooler in the evenings, so it is a good idea to pack a jumper/jacket. We recommend packing light to medium weight clothing as well as rainwear in case of cooler or wet weather. Good walking shoes are must

Before you leave on your trip, it is recommended you obtain a small amount of cash in the currency of the country you will arrive in. Though most locations will accept credit cards, for small vendors and markets we recommend getting some local currency. If it is not possible to obtain the local currency before you leave, do not worry, it can be purchased at the airport on arrival or withdrawn at an ATM.
