Questions related to Thailand
Do we need malaria tablets?
we recommend you visit you doctor or a travel clinic four to six weeks prior to departure for the most up to date information. While your on your trip protect yourself from getting bitten by wearing light coloured clothing and use mosquito repellent containing the compound ‘Deet’ on exposed areas of skin and on clothing.
Are there mosquito nets in the hotels?
Most of the hotels we stay in do not have mosquito nets. If you are concerned, we always recommend either bring on with you or better still buy one when they get here. The problem is that they are so fragile that most hotels don't bother, those that do might have a small rip or tear in them. You should bear in mind that mosquito nets can be difficult to hang and, in reality, may be of little use.

Is there a maximum age?
No, our trips are designed to be accessible to any family with a good level of fitness. But, if you have any children sixteen years or older it's worth looking at our worldwide brochure, where trips are open to any one fourteen years and over as long as the're accompanied by someone over eighteen. If you are travelling on one of our Southern Africa tours and are aged sixty five or over you will need to provide us with a medical certificate signed by your doctor.

Our only rule is that there is at least one child under 18 years travelling with you. Older families should check out our worldwide trips.

Child prices apply to children who are 14 or under at the time of travel. From 15 years you are classed as an adult.
