Pre-Departure Questions | Page 2 | Craig Travel

Do I need to get any local currency before we set out from Canada?

While some travelers like the convenience of carrying local currency, others will find it confusing and not necessary. Arriving in a foreign land with a group, you will find that your leader and local representative look after any expenses until you are able to secure some local currency.

How much money will I need on tour?

This will depend greatly on the tour in question and your personal spending habits. You will need to allow funds for the following: any meals that you must purchase drinks which are often not included at meals "snack" money for morning and afternoon breaks souvenir purchases plus other personal expenditures Credit cards can be used in most destinations and are often the best way to make larger purchases. In many destinations, ATMs (banking machines) will allow you to access your own bank account back home and provide excellent exchange rates, even after their service fee has been charged.

When and how will I receive my travel documents?

Your documents will be shipped via Canada Post Expedited Parcel or Express Post approximately 21 days prior to your departure date. Your documents will not be dropped at your door.
