We recognise that some of our guests would prefer to travel overland to join our tours, and you will find the appropriate local railway station for each tour on its respective page on our website. A useful starting point for planning your rail journey in Europe is the extremely informative Seat 61 website. https://www.seat61.com/european-train-travel.htm
- Travelling without flying
- Finding a flight that works for you
Rather than search through individual airlines’ websites, we recommend letting Skyscanner take the strain of giving you your flight options for any European destination. Note it is often a little cheaper to book your preferred flights directly from the airline’s own website than via the affiliate links Skyscanner provides. https://www.skyscanner.net/
- Travel insurance
For safety’s sake and everyone’s peace of mind, we insist that all of our guests have suitable travel insurance before they join one of our tours, and will ask for details of this before the start of your holiday. There are, of course, many insurance providers and you may find that your existing bank or credit card provider includes this as part of their services.
While many of our guests will have bookcases groaning with fieldguides, there’s always room for one more(!), and we recommend one or two useful books for all of our tours in the information packs we send guests at the point of booking. Our friends at WILDsounds have an enormous catalogue of books in stock, and are always happy to discuss your requirements for even the most obscure of titles. https://www.wildsounds.com/menu/main.shtml
