Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Help Arrange My Travel Visas?
Requirements for travel visas vary widely depending on your nationality and your destination. If you do require a visa you can arrange them yourself according to your countries requirements or use the services of a travel agent or visa processing company.
How much should I budget for extra expenses on the trip? What types of extra expenses should I plan for?
On average, an extra $1200 should be okay. If possible, bring half of that in cash and notify your bank if you will be using your bank outside the US. We recommend wallet.ng as an alternative to using your credit card while on travel.
Upon signing up for our trip, you’ll receive a questionnaire where we ask about your interests and can tell you about additional cost items. Examples like buying gifts or fabrics, nightlife outings, or have an outfit made by a local tailor are extra expenses.
I'm A Single Traveller, Will I Be Charged A Single Supplement?
Most of our trips do not have a single supplement. This means that the accommodation is on a twin share basis and, if you are traveling on your own, you will be sharing a room with another LOS Life traveller of the same sex. Some tours have an optional single supplement or rarely a mandatory single supplement.
Our Trips Have Most Meals Included - You'll Also Have A Few Nights To Head Out And Do Your Own Thing.
Most often meals are offered buffet or family style and always have options. We will make effort to accommodate gluten-free and vegetarian options but please be aware this may not be completely possible in certain instances. Notify us on the intake questionnaire of special dietary needs so that when we cook the meals, we can organize our menu planning accordingly.
Are Airport Transfers Included?
Yes, airport transfers are included in our pricing. You will be picked up at the airport with other members of the group arriving within a 45-min time frame.
What Else Do I Need to Know Ahead of Traveling?
Prior to your departure you will be sent a document called: "Preparing for Your Journey to...(insert your destination)" which will include an up to date itinerary, supplies you may need to bring, accommodation and airport transfer information, what to bring, what to wear, and any other information we think necessary.
Do I need Travel Insurance?
We require that everyone traveling with LOS Life Travel has travel insurance. It is a good idea to buy travel insurance whenever and wherever you travel. World Nomads is a good source to get a travel insurance quote. There are certain situations when you should definitely have travel insurance coverage in order to recoup your expenses in case of the unexpected:
If you are on a pre-scheduled or multi-day package tour.
Whenever you visit a foreign country, especially if you plan to visit lots of different places.
When you plan to take part in risky activities such as bungee jumping, trekking, climbing, scuba diving, skydiving and so on.
