jacket or umbrella, as well as a hat or cap.

Titlis or Mt. Jungfrau. It is advisable that passengers carry appropriate clothing warm waterproof jacket and extra layers of clothing. Please ensure you bring closed footwear.

Passengers should also carry travel adapters so they can charge their electronic items in their hotel room (as the sockets in Europe and elsewhere vary from those in the UK). Passengers may also want to carry a small travel iron, hair dryer, kettle etc, as many hotel rooms will not have these facilities.

Your mobile phone may be able to receive calls whilst on holiday, you can check with your network operator to switch on the roaming feature of your mobile, there is usually an additional charge to receive incoming calls whilst aboard.

Car seats are not provided on coaches but passengers should carry car seats with travelling infants for comfort and safety. Most coaches will not have hot water to heat up milk bottles (not suitable for drinking). Therefore it is the passengers’ responsibility to make sure of necessary arrangements for any children in their group.

 

Milk and baby food cannot be provided by the hotel or restaurants and passengers are advised to carry ready to drink milk whilst on tour.

A reduction on the tour price will be applied for the second child with no bed.

 

Visiting Mountain Tops

You should only make trips to high altitudes if you feel healthy. The following recommendations apply:

  • An advanced age is no barrier to high altitude. For blood pressure patients who are well controlled with medication, the altitude is not a concern.

  • Asthmatics can travel to high altitudes without any problems. High-altitude air is less polluted with particles that can cause an asthma attack.

  • Epileptics who are well controlled with medication should be able to negotiate the altitude.

  • Pregnant women: There may be a certain risk for pregnancy even without pre-existing diseases over 2500-3000 metres. Caution is therefore advised

 If in doubt, please consult your doctor in advance.

 

Infants: Short-term stays at the mountain tops are unproblematic. Infants and young children are often unable to equalise pressure during descent and are therefore increasingly at risk of ear irritation. Regular swallowing (drinking, sucking on a bottle) during the descent can prevent the occurrence of irritation. Because children can chill faster than adults, always pay attention to sufficient protection from the cold at high altitude. Sunglasses and good sunscreen are necessary on the glacier!

 

High altitude visits not recommended for

  • Lung and heart patients who are already short of breath while at rest or when climbing stairs are advised not stay at high altitude. Patients with angina pectoris or severe impaired performance with heart enlargement and heart failure should not visit high altitude.

  • Coronary artery disease (angina pectoris) and heart enlargement with medical therapy should not visit high altitude.

  • Patients with a pronounced risk profile for cardiovascular disease (smoker + high blood pressure + diabetes + high blood fats + overweight + occasional chest pain) should consult the doctor before visiting high altitude.

  • Do not stay at high altitude after having striated muscles or a stroke.

 

Other practical tips

  • A decongestant nasal spray is recommended for colds before descent, in order to prevent ear irritation caused by lack of pressure balancing.

  • The ambient temperature drops with increasing altitude. Therefore, be sure to wear warm clothes for trips over 1500 metres, even in during the heat of summer.

  • Nicotine and alcohol in excess before or during the trip can ruin your day

 

Additional Excursions

Passengers may be offered additional excursions that are designed to enhance the holiday experience and are not included in the tour cost. We take great pride in the fact that we can give these prices and what is included and how long the excursion will be, to passenger before they go on tour. These excursions are priced separately and operated solely by the driver and tour leader

Passengers are entitled to refuse any additional excursion. Only excursions listed in the additional excursions section of a tour can be conducted by a tour manager.
