Philippines Tour FAQ's
Thinking of booking this Phillippines Tour? Here are some things you should know:

Do I Need a Visa?

Most nationalities, including Australia, the UK, Europe, NZ, Canada, and the US, do not need a visa to enter the Philippines. If you plan to stay in the Philippines longer than 30 days, you will need to extend your travel permit for a fee of approximately AUD 80. We recommend checking with your local Philippines consulate for up-to-date visa requirements and costs. If you need any further help with visas, ask us.

When Should I Arrive?

You can arrive at any time on day one. However, if you want a day or two in Manila before the planned itinerary, we can arrange your accommodation for approximately AUD 60 per night.

How Much Spending Money Will I Need?

All your activities, accommodation, transport, and some meals are included, so you will need money to pay for extra meals, drinks, shopping, and onward travel. We recommend you bring at least AUD 500 spending money per person to make the most of the Philippines and Boracay tour package.

Any Luggage Advice?

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light. Ten to 20kgs of gear should be plenty. It is usually pretty hot in the Philippines, and the weather makes dragging lots of luggage around a somewhat sweaty affair.

Do I need travel insurance?

Travel Insurance is not compulsory but is highly recommended. We can help you out with that too. Just get in touch and let us know what you need.
