Are there any health precautions or vaccinations that I need?

How far in advance are flights available to book?

I am a solo traveller – do I have to pay a single supplement?
Travel at 60 continues to work hard to source solo traveller holidays. We also work closely with operators who will pair you with another solo travel, as we understand that some solo travellers would happily share a room on tour to avoid paying an additional supplement. If you are a solo traveller who is willing to share on a group tour, please let us know so we can explore options with travel operators willing to pair you with a solo traveller of the same gender on your tour, saving you both the Single Hotel Room Option cost.

What are the meal abbreviations on some itineraries?
B = Breakfast, L = Lunch, D = Dinner.
