    Do you think last week of May and first 10 days of june would be good dates to visit Japan? i know It is rainy season but...is It that bad?

    Hi Paula, It really depends on the activities you want to be doing and which part of Japan you're looking to visit. I've been before in July and still had a great time (I was around Kyoto for most of the trip). While the beginning of June is the start of the rainy season, it doesn't pour down, or even rain, everyday of the month. If you're in the cities or visiting temples I think you would be fine. If you're planning on going to Hokkaido you might not even be affected. This site has some great information on Japan's rainy season that I would agree with from past experience: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2277.html In the end it comes down to where you are, what you're doing and personal preference.

    where can I buy travel insurance for High Altitude walking/trekking over 6000 meters/22,000 feet please? We are 59 and 60 yrs old with high

    Hi Vijay, Depending on your country of residence, World Nomads might be an option for this kind of cover. Canadian and American residents have cover for trekking at those heights (although there are some criteria you'll want to read through). If you're from either of those countries I'd suggest contacting our customer service team who can advise further. Cheers, Pearse about 4 years ago

    First time Solo female traveller in Ireland for 10 days in April. Ideas & advice please? :)

    Hi Shikha, It’s a busy schedule for 9 nights, especially travelling by public transport. From Galway to Glendalough is from one side of the country to the other. It’s 3 hours by car with, it appears, no direct bus route, which means changing and that could add more time. Unless you have a pressing reason to go to Glendalough (you could always do a day trip from Dublin if there is), I’d spend more time in Galway and explore more of Connemarra, places like Clifden, Westport, Cliffs of Moher and even take a boat trip out to the Aran Islands which are full of history and you can hear the native tongue spoken as most people there speak Gaelic (and English, of course). Lots of travellers (mainly Aussies) head for Westport for the surfing and the ‘craic’, especially during the northern summer. Hope that helps! Pearse World Nomads about 4 years ago

    Do you need Visa for italy?

    Hi Karen, For any questions relating to visa requirements it's going to come down to what passport you hold and why you're travelling there. Some countries/regions receive a visa on arrival (VoA) while others need to apply for a visa prior to departure. Who needs what changes depending on the country you're looking to enter. A good place to start would be https://italy.visahq.com/. You can choose your country of residence/passport and it will give you an idea of what the requirements will be. Otherwise call your local Italian embassy and they'll usually be able to tell you. Cheers, Pearse World Nomads about 4 years ago

    Where should I go

    Hi Imanol, I've outsourced this one to my parents as we (them, my brother & I) often travelled Europe as a family when we were around those ages and they still return there quite a lot. They said their preference would be the second option; as much as the adults would love Ireland (our family is originally Irish) there's more for the kids to do in Amsterdam. Hopefully that helps!

    What kind of insurance to Kilimanjaro ?

    Hi Ania, For this kind of question, because cover can differ depending on your country of residence, it's probably best to contact the customer service team directly so they can advise further. You might also want to include the provider/operator you are using for the climb as that can sometimes help to clarify the activity. You can find their details on this page; http://www.worldnomads.com/contact-us Sorry I couldn't help more! Pearse about 4 years ago
