      Entry Requirements

      Passport, visa & entry requirements 

      • In order to enter the United Kingdom and Ireland, U.S. and Canadian citizens need a valid passport with an expiration date extending at least six months beyond the date of reentry.
      • We recommend having at least one blank passport page for entry stamps.
      • There is no visa required for U.S. or Canadian citizens.
      • If you are not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

      Tour Pace

      • You will walk for at least 1 hour daily across mostly flat terrain, including paved roads and cobblestone streets, with few hills or stairs.
      • Travelers should be healthy enough to participate in all included walks without assistance. 
      • You should feel comfortable managing your own baggage at times, as well as getting in and out of trains and ferries.
      • TripAdventures Rep and the Tour Director who accompanies your group are unable to provide special, individual mobility assistance to travelers on tour. The responsibility of the Tour Director is to ensure the group as a whole enjoys a relaxing and informative journey, and he or she cannot be relied upon to provide ongoing, individualized assistance to any one traveler.
      • If you have any mobility concerns or physical restrictions, please discuss with your Group Leader, Stacey

      Baggage Allowance

      • Please note that our travelers are limited to one checked bag and one carry-on bag per person due to storage limitations on motor coaches and other transfers, which may include train connections or flights.
      • Contact your airline(s) for baggage size and weight restrictions for your flight
      • A TripAdventures luggage tag will be sent to you prior to tour. Make sure you use the label and keep valuables, medication, and documents in your carry-on bag.

      Time Zones

      • The United Kingdom and Ireland are on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is five hours ahead of Eastern Time (ET).
      • When it’s noon in New York, it’s 5pm on tour.


           You will use the Pound sterling in the United Kingdom and the euro in Ireland.

      • Better rates of exchange are usually available overseas, although it’s worth ordering some currency from your local bank to use when you first arrive.
      • We strongly advise that you take debit/bank cards and credit cards, which can be used to withdraw cash at local banks as needed.
      • You can use most debit/credit cards at ATMs on the international networks Cirrus and Plus, but make sure to check with your home bank about withdrawal fees.
      • Inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.
      • International banks and businesses primarily accept debit and credit cards that work with the EMV chip system. If you do not already have at least one debit or credit card with a chip in it, we strongly recommend requesting one from your bank prior to your tour.


      • At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity in local currency. Please keep current exchange rates in mind.
      • We recommend tipping the equivalent of $10USD per person per day for your Tour Director and the equivalent of $5USD per person per day for your driver.
      • If applicable, we also recommend the equivalent of $5USD per local guide.
