Secret Slovenia Departing 20thSeptember 2019
 
Hello Ladies & Gentlemen 
 
My name is David Coatsworth and I have the great pleasure of being your Just You Tour Manager for the ‘Secret Slovenia’ tour beginning on 20thSeptember 2019.

I would like to say – Hello - to those of you that use the online chat room that will be joining me on this Tour.  

Slovenia is a truly beautiful and wonderful country and I will be doing my upmost to ensure that you have an amazing holiday from start to finish. Like yourselves I am looking forward to returning to this amazing country where I have no doubt we will create some fabulous memories with a group of new friends.

Currency 
We will be using the Euro throughout our time in Slovenia and also when we visit Italy. ATMs are widely available and credit cards are generally accepted. 


Clothing
It would be foolish of me to predict the weather in the beautiful alpine region that we are going to be visiting. But it’s likely that we will experience a range of weather, from warm & sunny to cool & wet. So I recommend that you consider packing a hat and sunscreen in addition to something warm and rainproof. You will also want some comfortable footwear to walk in. 

 
You might like to consider keeping your luggage weight a little below your allowed limit in case you want to pick up some souvenirs.

You might also like to check the weather forecast on the internet before you leave, but in a mountainous region always expect the unexpected where the weather is concerned. Our Hotel is in Kranjska Gora. 

Electrical
Slovenia uses the 2 x Round Pin Plug that is common throughout much of Continental Europe. Adapters for our U.K. plugs can generally be purchased more cheaply at home than they can abroad. If you are using equipment that needs to be charged please remember to bring the necessary cables in order to charge up your camera, phone, iPad etc.


Luggage
Porterage at the hotel is included.  

 
Meals
Breakfast and dinner are included in your tariff and we also have 2 lunches included. Most meals will be served Buffet style and will include examples of the local cuisine. Wine, beer, soft drinks, tea, coffee and water are not included but can easily be obtained at your own expense. 

Medication
Please ensure that you bring sufficient prescription medication for the duration of your stay and carry any medication in your hand baggage rather than in your suitcase. It can also be useful to have your prescription slip with you. Also bring your EHIC card with you.    

Tipping
Tipping is common practice in most holiday destinations. If you feel you have received good service in a hotel, bar or restaurant or from a driver or local guide, you might want to say thank you by leaving a tip. How much you leave is entirely up to you, but as a guide £2-£3 per person per day is suggested by Just You in your holiday paperwork.

Toilets
As is the case in the U.K. you will often need to pay to use public toilets, so it’s useful to keep some coins handy.

Welcome Meeting
I will organise a brief Welcome Meeting including a Welcome Drink on the day of our arrival. If our flights are on time I hope to hold this at 7pm in the Hotel Lounge/Bar which is adjacent to the Reception area.

Suggestions
It’s a good idea to have a copy of the Photo & Information page of your Passport and to have a copy of your travel insurance with you. 

To make a telephone call from Slovenia to the U.K. dial +44, followed by the phone number (dropping the first 0). Telephone calls from hotels can be very expensive. You might like to check your own particular arrangements with your mobile service provider. Special packages are sometimes available.

 
It is going to be a FABULOUS Tour! 

I look forward to meeting you all. 

Best Wishes

David

ps in addition to all the other great things, they also have amazing cakes and pastries in Slovenia. I absolutely adore the local delicacy, kremšnita BUT please don't let me eat too many!  Tongue
