Frequently asked questions

Throw a dart at a map, and you can guarantee young people are travelling there! The world has opened up, and travel is now more accessible than ever for young people to explore and enjoy. With this in mind, many first-time travellers or youth heading away gravitate towards more affordable locations along popular backpacking routes like Southeast Asia, Europe New Zealand and South Africa. 

The popularity and peace of mind that come with group tours have also made regions like Africa and adventure trips far more popular amongst young travellers. When in doubt, turn to social media, with travel influencers now playing a huge part in determining the next travel hotspot for young people exploring the world.

Of course! Travel itineraries can be customised to the individual to ensure you’re getting the most out of your trip. Just keep in mind that scheduled group tours (like Contiki, Topdeck, Intrepid etc.) have set itineraries that cannot be changed based on individual preference, aside from opting in and out of extras like day trips and activities. 

If you can’t find a tour itinerary that suits your goals, chat with one of Flight Centre’s travel experts about crafting a custom itinerary for your next trip!

Group tours and customised itineraries are made with safety as a first priority, especially for solo youth travellers. If you’re worried about the safety of a particular location or trip, consult with your travel expert and trusted sites like Smart Traveller for the most up-to-date information. 

For the best peace of mind, we recommend investing in a comprehensive travel insurance policy with a trusted provider like CoverMore to have your back in case anything goes wrong. 

First things first, where and when are you going? Check the climate and predicted weather to make sure you’re well prepared. Aside from that, adventure trip packing must-haves include:

  • Your passport, travel insurance & ID 
  • Travel towel
  • Comfy walking shoes
  • Water bottle
  • A weather-proof backpack or dry bag
  • First aid kit
  • Snacks 
  • Sun protection (sunscreen and sunglasses!)
  • A phone charger or spare battery
  • Camera
  • Any medication or essential personal care items 

These are just a few essentials. For a more detailed packing list, consult with your tour or travel provider.
