A Holistic concept
YOUR TRAVEL SATISFACTION IS OUR DUTY, VOCATION AND CHALLENGE.
QUALITY AT THE BEST PRICE IS OUR MISSION AND OBJECTIVE.
QUALITY IN THE PURCHASE SITUATION:
Thanks to our on-line system we offer a very high level of information about
our different tours. Our system provides all the information you require
for you to know the exact product you are purchasing. We provide detailed
information such as itineraries with timetables and duration of stages,
pictures and videos of the places you will visit, destination specific guide
books, tourist and climatological information and detailed information
of the hotels that will be used. In our online system you can
obtain an estimated budget of your trip and keep track of
availability. However, Europamundo does not sell directly

mistakes, we always work together with professional
travel agencies, who can secure that flights,
land arrangements, visas etc. are aligned
and correct. So your final purchase
always have to be done at a
travel agency.
QUALITY
HUMAN QUALITY
OUR GUIDES:
Sharing smiles. The human quality is essential for you to feel
welcome. On all our tours in Europe the guides are European
and are especially chosen because of their vast knowledge of the region and their experience of the culture and
countries of our travelers. On all our tours in Europe
the guides are European and they have been selected for their in-depth understanding of India; its country, customs, way of life and
philosophy.
HOTELS:
QUALITY
We know how important hotels are on
your trip. The hotels have been selected
taking into consideration quality, price
and location. Our hotels are located in
the cities we visit. This means that you
can easily explore the city on your own,
you can add additional nights or return to
the hotel later (or earlier) than specified
in the itinerary. All hotels have public
transport to the city center.

AMSTERDAM- Mercure Amsterdam Airport (4*)

QUALITY IN THE ITINERARY:
MEALS
We know how important it is for
some of our travelers to be able
to dine at restaurants that provide
cuisine from their own country. Our
European circuits include a hearty
European breakfast buffet. Dinners are
usually not included (except on selected
itineraries which include some evening
meals) however, we always offer evening
transfers to areas in the city with India
food and several other restaurant options.
This always gives you the possibility to
choose food similar to you home country’s
or to taste the local specialties. But do not
forget savoring the local cuisine is also a way
to experience the country and its culture.
With Europamundo every option is available!
Traveling by coach is not just to link major tourist spots. We travel
by coach because it gives us the possibility to have en route stops
in small towns and villages, go by the breathtaking roads with
landscapes of great beauty, include locations that are less well
known but enable you to really experience the destination you are
traveling to and to better understand its people history and
traditions. A trip with Europamundo is a journey of discovery!

BREAKS DURING YOUR JOURNEY: Many of our tours operate every week,
all year round. If you wish, you can contact our booking department and, for a
small additional fee, you can take a break from the tour and return later on
to continue your journey. This stop enables travelers to get to know a country
better, to visit relatives or attend conferences, and so on.

PRICES
OUR PRICES ARE VERY COMPETITIVE.
WE ALSO OFFER ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS:
- Children under 3 years of age go FREE (they do not
have the right to a seat in the coach or to a bed in the
hotel).
- Children from 3 to 8 years of age are entitled to a
discount of 40% (with a minimum of one adult per child).
- Children from 9 to 15 years of age are entitled to a
10% discount on the value of the trip.
- Traveler over 65 years of age: 5% discount on the
value of the trip.
- Travelers on their honeymoon: During their trip we
will provide a surprise gift!
- “Repeaters”: Those who have already traveled
with Europamundo in a previous year will receive a 5%
discount.
- Groups travelling on our regular tours: Please see
our conditions for groups with a minimum of 12 people
traveling.
Our prices are very competitive. One of our duties is striving to achieve the
best quality/price ratio in the market. When you compare prices remember:
THE HOTELS are located in the cities to be visited.
PRICES ARE GUARANTEED, and no form of additional supplement applies.
GRATUITIES/TIPS are voluntary. If you feel that your guide and driver have
done an impeccable job, you can choose to give a gratuity, but this is entirely
your decision. Gratuities are never an obligation in Europamundo!
OUR ITINERARIES are more comprehensive and visit more places along the
way. They include most of the admission prices for the places visited.
TRANSFER UPON ARRIVAL: When you arrive at the starting point of your trip,
a transfer service will be waiting to take you to your hotel.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING ALONE, it is not necessary to pay a high single room
supplement - you can book the “sharing” option and Europamundo will take the
responsibility for finding a person of the same sex to share a room with you.
If no other traveler fits these criteria, you will travel in a single room without
paying any surcharge.
TRIPLE ROOM DISCOUNT: For those wishing to stay in a triple room, we
provide a discount of 5% per passenger (or a 15% discount for the third person).
IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL, our charges for trip modification or cancellation are
very fair. Some companies make more of their profits from people that don’t
travel than those who do! If you have to cancel due to a situation out of your
control, no cancellation fees will apply (there will only be a charge for unused
services that we cannot notify about the cancellation without 72 hours’ notice).
OTHER ADVANTAGES
OF EUROPAMUNDO
INTERNATIONAL CIRCUITS:
These tours have been specially designed for guests from India,
however, on our coaches you will meet travelers who come from
many other countries around the world. This will allow you not only
to travel and learn from the places visited en route, but also through
meeting your fellow passengers with whom you visit these places.

EUROPAMUNDO FOR
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
Europamundo is an affiliated member of UNWTO, the United Nations
organization responsible for the promotion of sustainable tourism. We
know how important tourism is to human development, and recognize the
need for tourism to be sustainable and also beneficial in the communities
in which it is undertaken.
SUSTAINABLE TOURISM: Our trips do not just focus on major cities; we
also visit smaller towns and even the most remote areas where there is
no mass tourism; thereby opening up opportunities for small communities
to engage in the tourism industry.
EUROPAMUNDO ETHICAL CODE: We have our own code of ethics for
fairness, tolerance and the coexistence of cultures. We
adhere to the United Nations International Ethical Code
for Tourism.
EUROPAMUNDO FOUNDATION: A proportion of the price
of your trip will be donated to the Europamundo foundation.
We support NGO’s that work to ensure that tourism is a factor
in the development of communities in different parts of the
world – including India. We also contribute to organizations which
support tolerance, multiculturalism and peace.
A WORLD FREE OF POLLUTION: Europamundo has carried
out a study in order to find out the CO2 footprint produced by
our activities. We are taking initiatives to compensate for this
irreversible damage through planting forests in different countries, such
that our company will not have a negative impact on the environment.
OUR VALUES: Tourism allows us to know, understand and learn
from other cultures. We believe in diversity and that wealth
arise from a world full of variety. We believe that tourism
contributes to peace, coexistence, tolerance and respect for
the different people who inhabit our planet. Our guides must
convey our philosophy, our coaches are a place where people arrive from
different nations and cultures, and they are also a vehicle for peace,
diversity and coexistence of cultures.
MEET THEIR TRAVEL
COMPANIONS PRIOR TO
DEPARTURE
POSSIBILITY TO MEET YOUR TRAVEL
COMPANIONS PRIOR TO DEPARTURE:
We provide a special social network for our travelers called “Travel
companions”. If you wish, you can meet and connect online with your
travel companions before departure! This means that you can discuss
and exchange ideas, maybe even make friends, before you even start your
journey!
