Frequently Asked Questions

All your activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least $500 AUD spending money per person.

We always recommend travelling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s usually pretty hot in the Philippines, which makes pulling too much luggage around a somewhat sweaty affair.

Most nationalities including Australia, UK, Europe, NZ, Canada and US do not need a visa to enter the Philippines. If you plan to stay in the Philippines for longer than 30 days you will need to extend your visa for a fee of approximately $80 AUD. We recommend checking with your local Philippines consulate for up to date visa requirements and costs. If you need any further help with visas just ask us.
