Contiki have included a great deal of activities in all our trips, but cannot and would not want to include everything. Personal choice is important and Contiki clients like the option of being included/or not on certain “Optionals,” i.e., Paris Nightclub show, Gondola ride in Venice, Rafting in Austria.
From experience, we know which optionals have proven most popular with Contiki clients and only these will be offered to you. These optionals do cost extra and a full list relating to your trip can be found with your final documents (or under the optionals heading of your tour online) to assist with trip budgeting. Payment for optionals is cash only for our Asia and Latin America tours. Most other optionals can paid for using Credit/debit Cards, however there are exceptions such as high adventure optionals, most short breaks and the following regions/tours which still require cash only payment (you will be advised in advance by yourContiki Tour Manager which form of payment is accepted) :
The United Kingdom
Scandinavia and Russia
The Turkey & Greek Island Odyssey
Croatian Island Sailing trips
The Egypt and the Nile trip.
