When thinking of booking a coach tour, most people want a number of questions answering first.
This can be from asking whether children are welcome to how many guests are usually on each trip.

Before I Book
Will I be travelling with people from other countries?
The beauty of taking any guided holiday with Trafalgar is that you’ll have the opportunity to meet and travel with people from all over the globe.
How many people will be on my trip?
You’ll find an average of 40 to 45 guests on trips throughout Europe, and a maximum of 52 guests on trips throughout the United States and Canada.
Will I have free time?
Each Trafalgar itinerary offers the perfect balance of free time and guided experiences. You are also given the opportunity to tailor your trip with Optional Experiences. So you may choose to enjoy some of the best seats in the house at the world-famous Moulin Rouge in Paris, or maybe take a magical early-morning balloon ride over the beautiful Napa Valley when exploring California.
What are the coaches like?
Trafalgar pride ourselves on having the finest fleet of fuel-efficient, fully air-conditioned coaches with on board WiFi. All coach seats are reclining and there are on-board restrooms.
Are the hotels air conditioned?
Trafalgar select their hotels for their quality, comfort and impeccable service, with the majority of them having air-conditioning, though few hotels in the northern Alps or Europe have air conditioning due to the colder climate.
What is a Travel Director?
Trafalgar Travel Directors all share a passion for travel and their home countries. These experienced professionals show you what the guidebooks can’t – a true insider’s perspective of each destination. Each Travel Director has been through a made-to-measure development training programme, and many have at least five years’ experience under their belt. From checking you into your hotel room to recommending a local eatery, your Travel Director’s aim is to make travelling easy for you.
Can I book a group?
Trafalgar take the hassle out of booking a group holiday – and offer some great discounts for five or more people. Groups of five to eight people will receive 5% off the land-only part of their trip, and larger groups will save even more.
Does Trafalgar promote sustainable tourism?
Trafalgar is a founding partner of the TreadRight Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established in 2008. So far, the charity has donated more than US$2 million to help underprivileged communities and support sustainable tourism around the world.
What is the single traveller supplement?
If you prefer the privacy of your own room, you can opt for a single supplement. The cost will depend on your trip and can be found in the pricing section of the itinerary. If you’d rather not incur the additional expense, consider the single traveller room share option where you will be accommodated with a fellow guest of the same gender, on a twin-bed basis.
What if I have special dietary requirements?
Trafalgar can accommodate guests who are vegetarian and can assist with diabetic, gluten-free and other medically-recommended diets. Please advise at time of booking. Unfortunately, meals in accordance with strict religious requirements such as Kosher or Halal cannot be supplied. Also, salt-free, requests for specific dietary supplements such as soya milk, and high protein or low-carb meals cannot be provided.
Are children allowed on coach trips?
Children are welcome on all Trafalgar tours with a minimum age of 5 years.
