Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
There are currently five GB Motorhome Tours taking place. From Scotland in the north, to the Atlantic Coast of France in the west, to Poland in the east and Turkey in the south. Plus Germany in the centre.
On all GB Motorhome Tours, a number of magical experiences are offered. On the Turkey tour, one of these is to take a hot air balloon flight over the geographical wonderland of Cappadocia.
Each morning up to 100 balloons take off, many from next to our campsite.
Spring is a really great time to tour; to enjoy the warm days that are on offer at this time of year, along with the lovely long light evenings. In early spring, the Greece 2022 tour took place. This tour mixed history and natural beauty with the classical sights of Olympia, Monemvasia, Athens & Delphi, to leave participants enriched by its history and beautiful coastline. Some customer reviews from this years Greece tour
‘A great tour of Greece. The Greeks were very friendly & welcoming. The roads were far better than we anticipated with some spectacular drives on the minor roads. The scenic routes were beautiful. Springtime was a great time to visit as the wild flowers were spectacular. We loved the “GB Motorhomes” format of Group Meals & days out together sight-seeing, a great group of people on this Tour.’ Colin & Jane Young – Greece 2022
‘A wonderful variety of Campsite locations and interesting days out. We learned a lot about ancient and modern Greece. The food was good and plentiful, the weather mostly sunny and the Greek people so friendly and helpful. Can’t wait for our next Tour in the Canaries.’ Jane and Douglas Marsland – Greece 2022
‘Excellent group of travel companions and the Tour Guides, Dave & Sue couldn’t have been better.’ Ron & Chris Stableford – Greece 2022
‘Our 2nd time on this Tour, with some variations on the previous one five years ago. Some fantastic scenery, great driving experiences, nice sites and excellent meals. Great to meet new people and catch up with old friends. Many Thanks to Sue & David, our Tour Leaders, for looking after us.’ Carolyn & Roger Metcalfe – Greece 2022
Next years Greece tour is now already fully booked, however, if you would like to be added to the tours reserve list send us a simple email and we will look after this for you. Should we then be able to offer you a place, we will be in touch at that time. With many of our 2023 tours already fully booked, we are often asked why GB Motorhome Tours will not increase the number of participants on each tour. Very simply, GB Motorhome Tours run holidays to a very high standard and wish to maintain this for all tour participants to enjoy the very best experience. Group sizes are a factor in achieving this level of quality, and for this reason all tours are limited to a certain number of motorhomes.
Further tours for 2023, covering the Autumn period, will be released over the next month. Keep an eye on the GB Motorhome Tours website for these.
Throughout this summer, GB Motorhome Tours will have stands at two of the large outdoor motorhomes shows; with a number of our Tour Directors on hand to chat and answer questions regarding any of our tours.
For all continental travel a valid passport is required. However, when is a valid passport not valid? Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the Schengen zone countries (which encompass most of the EU countries) have tightened their rules around passports for UK citizens. For many years, the UK Government issued passports upon renewal, for the normal 10 year life span, plus any remaining months remaining on the old passport. Some passports have been issued with an expiry date of up to 10 years & 9 months after their date of issue. The Schengen zone countries will not recognise any passport that is over 10 years old at the time of travel. So it is possible to have a valid UK passport but find that it is not accepted for entry into EU countries; make a check of your own passport ready for future travel. GB Motorhome Tours advice is to renew any passport that is going to be over 10 years old before your time of return to the UK from any trip. It is also necessary to have 3 months validity remaining on the passport at the date of entry to the Schengen zone. Going forward the situation will be simpler, with the UK government no longer issuing passport’s for longer than 10 years from their date of issue. When renewing your passport allow good time for it’s return. Current advice from the UK passport office is to allow as much time as possible, which can be up to 10 weeks at the busiest times.
Enjoy your touring, whether this is in the UK or on the continent, and we look forward to travelling with you soon. Feel free to contact us if there is anything you wish to ask regarding a tour.
