START AND END OF OUR SERVICES
The services provided by Europamundo are overland. They start at the time when the customer receives the first service provided by our company (always following the border and customs formalities), and end when the customer receives the last scheduled service (transfer, breakfast, or the corresponding service, according to the purchased package). Europamundo is not responsible for the consequences or circumstances arising from services that are not provided by our company (flight disruptions, loss, or damage of luggage on flights, problems at borders/customs or those related to personal.
THE PRICE INCLUDES
In each route, Europamundo specifies the services included on the trip. As a rule, a strictly literal approach must be followed that leads to the conclusion that, what is not specifically listed as included in the tour price, is excluded. In case of any doubts, the consumer should consult his agent before travelling in order to avoid further claims.
OUR PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE
In general, any service that is not detailed as being included in the program, contract or information will be provided to the traveler, e.g.: Flights (unless stated otherwise), airport taxes, visas, taxes to enter or leave a country, tips (which are obligatory, as specified on the voucher, for few destinations like the USA, and must be paid directly on arrival to the driver and/or guide), extras in hotels, optional activities, and usually drinks during meals. Not the entrances (museums, monuments and other points visited) except if indicated included in the itinerary.
No reservation will be considered except when it is done in the page www.europamundo-online.com. The client will be able to access and check the details of their reservation (names, dates, flights for transfers,) in the “My Trip” page, created exclusively for each individual traveler, details to access My Trip can be found in the service confirmation voucher.
Our representative could not consider a requested reservation if a payment on account to the selling retail agency has not existed. The amount of the payment on account will be the one designated by the regulations of the customer's country of residence, or, failing, the representative travel agency, and in any case, there will always be enough to cover the possible expenses arriving from the cancellation.
Europamundo cannot consider any reservation cancelled if it is not done in the page: www.europamundo-online.com
The consumer can withdraw from the contracted or requested services at any moment, having the right to the amounts he would have paid, indemnifying the agency (except causes of force majeure duly justified and demonstrable), as follows:
- Management fees of € 25 (30 USD) per file in case of cancellation less than 30 days before the start date of the tour. In the case of Trip Style tours, management fees will be invoiced regardless of the date of departure, once the reservation has been made.
- Cancellation fees that will include the expenses incurred for services that cannot be canceled regardless of the date of departure and once the reservation has been made (special attention to tickets such as the Alhambra, cruises ...) and a penalty consisting of:
Applied on most of the itineraries
|30/11 days before the circuit starts
|10/01 days before the circuit starts
Applied in tours including cruises, domestic flight incorporated, tours for private groups (privatized and Trip Styles) and the tours in Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Oceania.
|30/21 days before the circuit starts
|20/11 days before the circuit starts
|10/3 days before the circuit starts
|During the 48 hours before the circuit starts
|In some cases, like tours to Kenia, Tanzania, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand or the ones fixated directly on your itinerary, an additional 20% penalty will apply on top of Penalty 2
The travel agency could also invoice the management expenses that would have accrued according to the legislation of the country where the sale took place.
See cancellation conditions for groups from 12 passengers.
If the cancellation occurs for reasons of force majeure before the start of the tour, management costs are billed exclusively, and the expenses caused by services that cannot be cancelled well in advance.
If the cancellation occurs due to an abandonment en route for reasons of force majeure once it has already begun, in case of reimbursement, this will be made through credit towards the realization of a subsequent trip, for the amount of the proportional part of what was paid / time not travelled. The management costs and the expenses incurred will be invoiced in all cases. For the purpose of calculating this amount, only the services provided by Europamundo (not including the airfare, with the exception of those tours that include it) will be considered, and the refund will be made for the amount invoiced by Europamundo to the travel agencies (therefore subject to deductions of assigned commissions).
The amount in deposit will be deducted from the new invoice, remaining in deposit, or billing the difference depending on the case. The voucher delivered will be nominative, without admitting change of name, and the passenger may select any tour from our offer. The deadline for this reimbursement is 2 years from the beginning of the services,
We recommend in any case the purchasing of a cancellation insurance.
Published prices in regular group coach tours, will be considered by person depending on the type of accommodation. In the cases when after the resignation or cancellation en route by any passenger of room/cabin occupancy is reduced (from double to single, from triple to double) the price difference of this if applicable will reverberate on the price to return to the customer that has cancelled.
The price quoted for the privatized trips of the catalogue and Trip Styles will be obtained once the total final number of passengers of the group is known, providing the price per person as a result of the sum of the corresponding proportional part of the common expenses of the group, the season and the type of accommodation, as well as the flights or high-speed train included on this trip. In the cases of renouncement or cancellation en route by any passenger, there will be no refund of the proportional part invoiced of the group's common expenses. The customer will have the right to a refund of the proportional part of the amount paid/time not enjoyed. The expenses caused by the change of occupation (double room to single/triple to double) will be passed on if applicable to the amount to be returned to the customer. The costs incurred will be billed in all cases.
Changes in arrival/departure date, circuit change, etc. are subject to the following penalties:
- Management fees of € 25 (30 USD) per file provided that the alteration occurs less than 30 days before the start date of the tour. In the case of Trip Style tours, management fees will be invoiced regardless of the date of departure, once the reservation has been made.
- Cancellation fees that will include the expenses incurred for services that cannot be canceled regardless of the date of departure and once the reservation has been made (special attention to tickets such as the Alhambra, cruises ...) and a penalty consisting of:
In the case of a customer taking a coach tour, a mini-group in the privatized tours, or in the Trip Styles wants a change in the itinerary of his trip, a penalty will exist equivalent to management costs and the expenses derived for the modifications of services, which will be informed at the time of the request.
In tours with flights or high-speed trains included, this will be edited based on the data and documents received.
Europamundo is not responsible for the expenses generated by a request of cancellation and the emission of flights or train ticket due to the fact that the data given to Europamundo differs to the corresponding to the passenger at the embarkation moment. Expenses for changes on tours including cruises, flights or in special dates will be billed.

Reservations "To Share". In a big part of our regular tours (discount not applied in the privatized catalogue tours or Trip Styles) if you travel alone, you are not forced to buy the single supplement and instead you can opt to share a room with another traveler by paying a supplement of 35€ (40$) for Europamundo to find a same gender partner, although not necessarily the same age, to share the room in twin. No reservations to share will be accepted in the Europamundo “Minipacks", packs with islands (Greek or Cruise travel) as well as packs in the Middle East, Asia (except Japan, Korea, and China), Africa and Oceania. Also, reservations to share are not accepted for the extra nights of the tours. In case you book a travel sector, reservations to share will be accepted only if the stay is minimum 7 hotel nights.
Important: There are hotel chains where a "twin" room (2 separate beds) may be a double bed and a sofa bed. The passenger in the option "to share" must assume in advance this possibility and solve this with his/her partner how to distribute the beds without the intervention of Europamundo or the hotel.
All of our routes in Europe, America, Japan, Korea, and China have guaranteed departures from 2 travelers, it may happen that in the case of being less than 5 people the total number of travelers enrolled (that is, up to 4) Europamundo may offer any of the following solutions: a similar tour to the one acquired (from Europamundo or another company); a similar tour providing all or part of the services by public transport; a modification of the booking date for the same tour or the refund of the amount paid with a voucher to obtain on your next trip a discount equivalent to 10% of the value of the tour not made.
Guaranteed Departures may be cancelled with no compensation or responsibility of Europamundo if there where exceptional circumstances of force majeure, this means any event that is out of our control or our providers control whose consequences could not have been avoided even if all reasonable steps would have been taken. Examples include wars, terrorism actions (and the thread of them), civil conflicts, mayor health risks, such the as the outbreak of general diseases or pandemics in the tour destination, or natural disasters as floods, earthquakes or climatic conditions that make it impossible to travel with security to the destination of the tour.
AIR TRANSPORT NOT HIRED BY EUROPAMUNDO FOR THE INCORPORATION OR END ON A TOUR
Europamundo's services, for the most part, are land operated and do not include the flights at the beginning or end of the tour (although there are packages with an air, train, ferry, or cruise section explicitly included in the itinerary). In the event of airspaces closure due to exceptional circumstances (health situation, volcanoes, weather reasons, strikes ...) and this affects the incorporation into a Europamundo tour or the return to the place of origin after completing it, Europamundo will provide all possible and necessary assistance both for the incorporation of travelers and for the departure. The traveler, in these cases, must pay directly to the airline or service providers the expenses generated as a result of these circumstances.
INCLUSION OF AERIAL SECTIONS AND HIGH-SPEED TRAINS
Tours including aerial sections or high-speed train sections are subject to a limited number of places. In case that at the time of the reservation there are not places available, availability at a different time, class or company could be offered. In those cases, itineraries could be modified. Aerial transportation or high-speed trains included in our tours have a luggage limitation of 20 kg /person (India and Kenia 15 kg), extra costs derived from excess baggage must be assumed by customers directly to the company at the point of check-in. Circuits subject to special conditions of cancellation, flight/train tickets are not refundable.
The reservations / issuance of the flights will be made with the data / documentation detailed at the time of booking the Europamundo tour. An error in this data or the presentation with a different document can cause the invalidity of the reserved and/or issued ticket and the need to issue a new ticket. Europamundo is not responsible for the costs of cancellation and new issuance. Remember, in addition, that making a new reservation may imply the possibility of not getting seats on the same flights.
In the case of closure is produced and it will affect any flight, train or cruise included in this contracted package Europamundo will offer all possible assistance for the reincorporation of the passengers to the route or relocation in similar tours, or giving the necessary assistance if required to process their return to their countries
The prices of the circuits are calculated taking into account the departure dates, currency fluctuation, fuel cost, taxes, special occupancy dates, etc. resulting in variable prices depending on the departure date and valid at the time the search is made. In case of making a quotation, it will be valid for a maximum of 3 days. Once your reservation has been made, Europamundo will not modify the confirmed price.
The prices in this brochure are referential and valid until 31.03.2024. To know the departure dates and prices of each trip, the required services must be quoted through our website: www.europamundo.com or through the integrated and authorized platforms. Any quote made in the system will be valid for a maximum of 3 days.
In the event customers wish to take a trip during 2024 which starts after April, Europamundo will not accept any responsibility for the variations resulting from the possible changes made in the itineraries between different seasons (including cancellation of the tour, changes in dates, hotels, itineraries, etc.) nor if a sale is made on a non-operational date without having previously consulted Europamundo.
NON-ADMITTANCE OF PASSENGERS
A moderate degree of health and physical capacity is required to participate in our tours. Europamundo does not have the capacity to give assistance to persons with special physical or mental needs. If necessary, they must travel accompanied by a person who guaranties assistance and care for the correct adaptation to the circuit and these expenses will be assumed by the passenger.
Passengers with special travel needs or passengers over 80 years of age who travel alone must agree to make a tour under the established terms, Europamundo cannot assume any responsibility in relation to the difficulties or impossibilities that such passengers may encounter when undertaking the activities planned during the tour, nor can it be responsible for providing any type of special assistance for its adaptation or continuation of the trip.
We remind you that our coaches do not have wheelchair access ramps. The failure to notify Europamundo of any difficulties and in the case that any assistance is needed to continue the tour, this will be billed directly to the selling agency.
No reservation will be accepted, or Europamundo reserves the right to interrupt a circuit for passengers whose physical or psychic conditions make difficult or dangerous their participation in the tour, for themselves or for the other passengers. In these cases, they will always have to be accompanied by a person who guaranties the necessary care or assistance for their correct adaptation to the tour.
Europamundo also must be informed at the time of the reservation in case of the existence of a person whose obesity could mean the impossibility too occupy a single sit in the coach without generating inconveniences to other passengers.
Europamundo also reserves the right of expulsion to passengers that significantly disturb the journey’s development.
All passengers must have their documentation in order (passport, visa, special permits in case of minors, and sanitary certificate if it is required in any country) or it is the passenger’s entire responsibility for any inconveniences that could arise from not complying with this rule.
We must warn that sometimes, even with all the documentation in order, the border authorities deny passage to passengers who they consider that had acquired the trip for purposes other than tourist (immigrants). Europamundo will not be able to manage or refund any of the services lost in these cases.
It is the responsibility of the customer to safely keep with them all documents and air tickets.
It is not considered cancellation of force majeure if the interruption of hired services is due to the absence of the required documentation or as a consequence of the denial to cross any border for this reason. In the case of Russia, the invitation letter needed for the visa issuance, will be processed with the passport data that has been informed to us at the time that the booking is done. Europamundo will not consider cancellation for force majeure if you are travelling with a different passport and as a consequence of this, your entry is denied. In those destinations where Europamundo offers the visa or previous processing for your tour, will not take any responsibility for not obtaining it. Remember that the entrance to Iran, Lebanon, Dubai, or any Emirate could be denied by the authorities if your passport has an entry or exit stamp to Israel.
We have two lines of products, regular and with differentiated services, one of them on a group basis made by coach and another one of private services done by minivans (Trip Styles, privatized groups of regular tours). In both lines we offer local or regional tours, or others covering several countries in all the continents.
In all of Europamundo’s products, offering the best price/quality ratio, it is included a hotel (the category varies depending on the selected series), with breakfast included and the activities that we consider necessary for getting to know the place (panoramic visits, night transfers, walking visits...).
Tours for peace, tolerance, and coexistence. Our tours are multinational, and you will be able to coincide in your travel with passengers from different parts of the world. This will become an experience and a unique opportunity to get to know, not only the destination to which you are traveling but also, the culture of the people with whom you will share the trip.
Europamundo offers you very complete itineraries that will allow you to know in depth the places you travel.
In www.europamundo.com and in its personalized webpage “My Trip" that will be created when you confirm your tour, you will find not only your itinerary but also the detailed itinerary (not available for the private tours " Trip Styles “)with the details of everything included in your tour: definitive hotel list, kilometers travelled by stage, approximate hours, content of visits, landscapes, etc…
Europamundo as guarantor of travelers’ security will always respect the current regulations established by each country, including health protocols.
You will also find in your webpage, "My Trip", the complete information for the additional program of optional excursions, available during your tour with the description, duration, and price as well as the minimum group size to run them. For your own comfort you could reserve most of them with an online purchase with no additional charges before or during your tour. The moment you make your reservation you will get a confirmation document of the service and a supporting document of the payment. In case that there is not a minimum group to make the excursion or by causes of force majeure we will be forced to cancel the excursion; the total amount will be returned by the same means the payment was done.
In case you want to cancel the reservation of any optional activity previously booked via online, this cancellation can be done through the "My Trip" platform, not generating any expense if it is done 48 hours before the optional excursion takes place. Europamundo cannot consider any optional excursion cancelled if it has not been cancelled by you through the online system in the established term.
Meeting point or exits
Unless otherwise stated, the meeting point or start point for services in grouped travels by coach or privatized from regular tours, will be in the hotel confirmed for your tour (or for the extra nights on your tour).
It is also important that you check if in your voucher it is established another departure place. In the case of our tours " Trip Styles ", you could choose the incorporation point for your itinerary at the time of making the reservation.
If there is “No Show” at the place, day and time confirmed for the beginning of your tour as during the development of the same, as well as in the optional excursions may suppose the loss of the purchased services with no right to any refund of them.
Europamundo reserves the right to alter the details of the itineraries (with the purpose of adapting them to the time of the year or when the guide considers it necessary) and in exceptional circumstances (breakdowns, traffic delays, or climatological problems, periods or situations extremely complicated) the order of visits or the visited points. Most of the time when these changes are foreseeable the information will appear in your voucher information.
Sometimes, when the number of passengers in a sector of a group circuit by coach is too low, the services offered could be affected and some variations may exist.
- If in the booked tour or in any sector of the tour, there are less than 5 travelers (up to 4 people), Europamundo might offer travelers one of the following options:
- A tour similar to the one acquired (from Europamundo or another company) with the same dates and starting and ending destinations.
- A similar tour provided totally or partially by public transport.
- The same circuit operated on a different date.
- The refund of the amount paid with a voucher to obtain on your next trip with a reduction equivalent to 10% of the value of the tour not made.
- If in the booked tour there are between 4 and 7 passengers, Europamundo could make the tour in a minivan of 8-9 sits driven by our tour guide. In this case some services could be substituted by other similar (example: At the place of the local guide, our tour guide could accompany our travellers during this time to the most emblematic places of the city using this van).
- 8 passengers or more (a number slightly bigger in some destinations following local regulations) the tours could be done in coaches or minibuses.
Itinerary in Regular Tours Privatized: Although the itinerary done in the privatized tour will be the same as in the regular group tour and the proposal of established schedules will be a suggestion to be respected, the privatized tours will entail the variation of some services in respect to the programs established for the groups. In these privatized tours, the panoramic tour will normally be done by our tour guides in a private vehicle the proposal of optional activities could be modified between others, and some services (Garda lake cruise, train in Cinque Terre, boat in Portofino, train in Orta and Pisa, entry to Éperlecques) will not be given.
Europamundo cannot take responsibility, if by coincidence, in holiday days, strikes, weekdays closure or other factors of force majeure some of the museums or monuments of the cities travelled cannot be visited during the route.
We recommend our passengers to read with attention the itineraries and detailed itineraries and all the descriptive information in the page www.europamundo.com and in your webpage "My Trip"
ASSISTANCE - ACCOMPANYING GUIDES
Assistance: All our overland routes, in group or private, unless otherwise noted, includes the accompanying of tour leaders (English speaking) and local guides, if so specified. Due to the global nature of Europamundo, groups will be able to be bilingual according to the number of passengers, the service may be provided in bilingual (usually in English and Spanish), either accompanied by two tour leaders, one for each language, or a single tour leader explaining in both languages.
Coach circuits will be attended by a sole tour leader or, according to the tour, by different tour guides that change depending on the trip segment. Private circuits, regular or from our “Trip Styles”, will be attended by a sole tour leader who also will be the drive of the vehicle. In the combined tours of Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, we will have to change buses and guides at the border by legal imposition. The guides cannot accompany the groups in the border procedures; owever, they will give as much information as possible about the requirements to be carried out. Delays in crossing these borders can take up to several hours.
Tour guides will always be present on walking-tours. When no services are included in the program, our tour leaders may be performing other tasks.
The assistance from tour leaders starts at the beginning of the services included in the program. There will be no assistance from any guides on additional nights, either at the beginning or end of the tour, or during cruises/flights/trains/regular transport or in packages made individually (packages with stays on Greek islands or others). In these cases, there is the assistance of the transport’s own personnel or the correspondent that provides the services.
Full details of the hotels are available in the catalogue and on our website www.europamundo.com. While this information is indicative of the standard of planned hotels, the final list of hotels that are confirmed for the trip can be checked via the “My Trip” webpage 48 hours before starting the circuit.
Hotels provided in our regular circuits, in private coaches or in groups, vary depending on the Series contracted. See the series description on the initial pages of the catalogue.
Due to the diversity of circuits offered in “Trip Styles”, hotels provided will be contracted in accordance with the option and content of the selected circuit. Find the foreseen hotels for your route in each circuit. Indication of hotels should be considered as guidance depending on the availability which, in some cases, due to size and number of hotels in destination or the celebration of public holidays, events or otherwise; may undergo changes being replaced with nearby hotels of similar category and comfort.
Location and comfort.
Europamundo has selected hotels that offer you the necessary comfort and that allows you to enjoy the city in which you are located. Although there are differences in terms of comfort and location depending on the series offered, hotels are always (except for special circumstances) in the cities where you are going to, sometimes its central, other times is near the center and in other cases in more peripheral areas, but always communicated with public transport to the city center. Our routes seek to provide you with an excellent price/quality ratio.
Except in a few hotels offered in our circuits “Trip Styles” that vary depending on the trip, hotels are always located, except in exceptional circumstances, in the cities that we are travelling to, sometimes in the city center, sometimes nearby and sometimes in peripherical areas, but well connected by public transport to the city center.
Our accommodation is not based on luxury hotels. Please keep in mind that standards, bed sizes and room dimensions can however vary between hotels of the same class, in different countries, and even in the same country. Please also remember the existence of accommodations with a special category or different from the usual ones, such as lodges (South Africa) / safari camps (Kenya and Tanzania)
All rooms have private bathroom and TV. Some of them also offer a mini-bar, safe box, and hair dryer. Many hotels, mainly in North Europe, do not have air conditioning or local legislation establishes limited dates of use. In some circuits exist certain slight differences within the quality of the hotels located in the same city.
Numerous hotels do not have triple rooms offering, instead, standard rooms based on twins or double bed with an extra bed which may be a camp-bed style or a sofa-bed. Triple room in cruises are typically composed of two twin bed and one bunk bed. We do not recommend a triple room unless you travel with kids as condition may often be cramped. Most of hotels in Europe do not accept more than three people, including minors, per room; if you are travelling in a family of four with under kids under three, you may consider booking two bedrooms.
There is a limited number of triple bedrooms in each hotel, and on some exceptional occasion it may be necessary the use of a double and a single room instead.
Booking a triple room implies the acceptance of these conditions. The programs based in United States and Canada offer differentiated prices in triple and quadruple rooms which are indicated trip by trip, usually being two queen size bedrooms.
Europamundo do not guarantee double bed bedrooms in all hotels, it may happen that the only possible option is two twin beds. In a very equal way, in certain hotels chains, it is possible that a twin bedroom (two single beds) may be a double bed and a sofa-bed or a camp-bed.
Some countries require the validation of your credit card at the arrival of the hotel, normally to cover possible extra consumption during your stay. These rules fall outside of the competence of Europamundo. In the unlikely event that you receive an inappropriate charge, you must communicate directly with the hotel. Europamundo cannot be held responsible for transactions between client and hotel, although will help as much as possible.
Ferries with night crossing may have accommodation in cabins with bunks
Check in and check out in room: Generally, hotel rooms will be available from 14:00 hours and are to be vacated at 10:00 am. Consider the possibility of arranging an additional night, should you wish your room to be available prior on the day of your arrival or after on the day of your departure.
Breakfast: Breakfasts are always included during the circuits and additional night, commonly it will be a cold buffet. The day of incorporation to the tour, the breakfast is not included. Hotels often allocate special rooms for groups for practical and organizational reasons. Europamundo will accept the protocols established for the breakfast rooms in case of requirement due to socio-sanitary situations.
Taxes: Hotel taxes are included in group reservations and additional nights.
Variations: Due to our maximum flexibility and last-minute online availability policy, we are often forced to change hotels, sometimes a few days before arrival at destination, mainly in high season. Print the list of the hotel 48 hours before your departure available in the “Hotels” section located in your personal “My trip” webpage.
On exceptional occasions (peak periods with a full occupancy, festival, fairs, beatification, sport events) Europamundo may modify the planned hotel to a nearby city.
In such cases, the program will be kept to its maximum and means of communication with the city that is included in the program will be provided during the group's stay in this city (not being the case on additional nights).
Responsibilities: Europamundo have a duty to select the accommodation providers that guarantee the quality standard according to their category and compliance with health protocols required by the laws and regulation of the country where the services are given. Europamundo has no liability to you for the actual provision of the accommodation. Should you consider they have a lack of maintenance or do not guarantee the sanitary and hygiene local standards, you must inform your tour leader to make an assessment of the particular circumstances with the receptionist or and hotel manager they will do their best to rectify the situation, and to let us know about the issues.
The client accepts responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay in the hotel/cruise. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the stay of any party member(s) whose behavior is such, in the reasonable opinion of the accommodation provider or us, as to cause or to be likely to cause danger, upset or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Furthermore, we shall be under no obligation whatsoever to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodation) you may occur as a result of your stay being terminated. If you cause damage to the accommodation in which you are staying, you must fully reimburse the accommodation provider concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must also indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (including all legal costs) made against us by the accommodation provider or any third party as a result
For your safety, keep valuables/cash in the safety box in your room, if available, or in the reception. Always keep your belongings in sight, and pay careful attention to your bag and wallet, especially in open areas of the hotel (restaurants, reception, breakfast rooms, etcetera). Neither Europamundo nor the hotel can hold responsibility for any thefts or burglaries committed in public areas.
In both, regular and private circuits, the client can request an extra night accommodation to extend the stay a day upon the arrival or departure. Although additional nights cannot be contracted for our “Trip Styles” series, there will be options for quoting depending on preference.
Please consult prices for additional nights.
- Additional nights must be immediately before or after the beginning or end of the circuit and cannot be purchased “to share”.
- Europamundo guarantees the bid price up to a maximum of 4 extra nights (except for special dates such as trade fairs, local or international festivities, events, etc), but keep in mind that Europamundo have no quota reserved for extra nights. Should there is no viability, additional nights will be booked in different hotels having preference those clients with services included in the circuit. For this reason, any reservation may change at short notice, even when the circuit had already started.
- If more than 4 additional nights are requested, Europamundo can modify the arranged price and hotel in accordance with hotel availability.
We hardly recommend the acquisition of just one extra night when needed, keep in mind that are hotels are selected for their group facilities such as bus accessibility, big buildings, restaurants etc, and may be located in peripherical areas within a considerable distance of the city center. Should your pre or post stay be longer than one day, mainly in big cities (Paris, Rome, London. New York, etc), we suggest you explore further alternatives to find central location or better rates.

Europamundo has a professional team of drivers and a modern fleet of coaches which guarantee your safety by strictly observing the current regulations established (braking system, security axles, speed limited, tachograph, regulated rest and driving time of drivers, etc.)
The comfort features are standard within the patterns of tourist coaches: panoramic windows, air conditioning, DVD, public address system, reclining seats, individual lights, armrests, and overhead racks, among others. Europamundo offers a free Wi-Fi service (30mb/day/device) that may not be available in some countries and coach units. Our buses are not equipped by ramps for wheelchairs.
The seats of our coaches are standard. Europamundo do not reserve a seat or establishes any seating rotation system.
Not all our coaches have a WC. In case of providing them, they may have prepaid access to allow a free but moderate use of the WC in order to avoid inconveniences (smells, displeasing cleaning and emptying of waste tanks). There will also be regular stop in service areas.
In the Other Destinations Series’ tours, the standards of comfort, exterior and interior appearance of the coaches used for excursions, transfers and tours vary depending on the regulations in force in each country, and may be lower than of what’s normally used in Europe. In most of the destinations in this section the buses do not have a bathroom or Wi-Fi service.
Depending on the number of participating passengers, coaches of greater or lesser size (with similar characteristics) are used. In exceptional cases, if the number of registered travelers is too low, to maintain our guaranteed departure commitment, or for regular privatized groups, vans or cars driven by our guide will be used.
In the case of a group trip with this anagram, there will be one or more changes of coach/guide during the tour in circuits.
Depending on the circuit of our ¨Trip Styles¨ selected, journeys will be made by motorways, highways or secondary roads times set by varying stages. Europamundo provides standard vans or cars, depending on the number of passengers, that will be driven by our guides in accordance with current legislation.
LOW OCCUPANCY TOURS
The tours with this anagram on the website indicate routes where usually over 80% of the interurban stages are carried out with less than 60% occupancy of the coach seats. The anagram does not indicate a guarantee, Europamundo will not assume a reimbursement, compensation or any responsibility in case if in any given departure it does not conform to the forecast.
In each trip we will notify you whether your transfer is included, that being from your arrival or departure point. The transfer can only happen if the correct and complete information in relation with the flight number/airport/timetable/train station/hotel has been sent to Europamundo, being the responsibility of the traveler or the travel agency of forwarding all necessary information. Please check that all information is correct in your voucher. Europamundo will not assume any reimbursement, compensation, or responsibility if the information has not been received or was not correct.
Our transfer agent will wait for you, holding a sign with your name or “Europamundo”, after you have collected your luggage and gone through customs inspection. Do make sure to exit through the closest door after you have collected your luggage, which is usually the one indicated as the exit for your flight. It could be that we ask you to approach a designated meeting point. The transfer may be private or shared with other passengers.
Should you wish to add any additional transfer, check up in our website. Keep in mind that the transfer agent is not a guide but is the person that takes you from the airport/train station to the hotel where your tour starts. Furthermore, it is possible that the transfer agent does not speak Spanish/English. Do not expect explanations or assistance during the check in from the transfer agent.
Important: If at any point you were to suffer a delay arriving to the meeting point (held during customs check, loss of luggage, etc.), missing a connecting flight or your flight number was changed, you must urgently contact the transfer agent or the emergency phone number that you can find on your travel voucher. In case you failed to notify this information, the transfer agent, after waiting for 1 hour, in the case of airports and 30 minutes in the case of train stations, would leave and you would lose any right to the transfer service. In case you have also requested a departure transfer, please verify with your guide the schedule for our pick-up time on the day of your flight.
The included transfers will only be possible if they are from a hotel, train station, port, or airport of the city where the services begin, to the hotel where your tour begins or vice versa. Only the airports/ports located in a radius of 40 km to the city center will be considered for this service. In case the airport you require the transfer is further than this distance, you must request an invoice from our website.
If you start your circuit in a different city than the one provided in the program (rotating circuits starting at a different point than usual), it may be that Europamundo does not have a transfer service in that city. In this case, if the program includes a transfer, we will indicate on your travel voucher that you should take a taxi, keep the receipt, which will be paid by the tour leader afterwards.
All of our private and regular circuits are bed and breakfast based. Some of our tours may have some lunch or dinners included. Private regular circuits should reserve equal conditions for the entire group; therefore, meal supplement is not available on individual basis.
The circuits with the most included services in Europe and the series in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Oceania include several lunches or dinners, most of the route days. If you have any type of allergy or some type of special food regime, you should inform your travel agency. However, this will be on request since we cannot guarantee it since we have established menus and they go according to the gastronomic customs of the country.
Normally the lunch/dinner services are pre-booked meals and client does not decide on the food. Drinks are frequently not included. “Meal supplement” cannot be purchased partially, “Meal supplement” plan involves the whole circuit or segment contracted. More details available at www.europamundo.com or in your personal “My Trip” webpage.
Anyone with an allergy or special diet requirements must inform the travel agent. However, we must advise you that we cannot guarantee the service as special diets of any kind can seldom be catered for adequately within the constraints of menus made according to the gastronomy customs of each country. Therefore, we recommend not to purchase the meal supplement to those who are vegetarian, in need of special food or like deciding the food.
The area that holds the luggage is limited in the coaches used in our regular group circuits which forces us to allow you one suitcase (up to 30kg). Likewise boots of vans or cars used in our “Trip Styles” and regular private circuits obliges a medium size suitcase (up to 15 kg, approximately 60 cm /24 in high x 34 cm /17 in wide) per person. Hand luggage needs to be small and capable of being stored safely beneath the seat as there is no space intended for this purpose.
In case that all baggage does not fit in coach or van holdings, our tour leader may send the luggage of the passengers carrying more than authorized amount by express parcel services. Passengers bearing such excess are responsible for all shipping charges.
In case of loss of luggage that was in the custody of our company or was caused by our mistake, Europamundo’s insurance will assume the responsibility according to coverages indicated in the basic insurance policy included in our tours.
Hand luggage is the sole responsibility of the passenger throughout the trip, look after your property at all times. Europamundo shall have no liability for any loss, theft or damage occurring to any hand luggage or item placed in the coaches or in hotels.
