TASK 3

ITINERARY NOTES

WELCOME TO THE 10 DATE EUROPEAN TOUR

Please see below some notes and information that should make the journey easier.

ARRIVAL INTO THE NETHERLANDS

For arrival into the Netherlands, you will need to take the Ferry from Harwich. They will check your passport and inspect the vehicle. This is purely routine. After this, you can board the ferry and access your cabin you have been assigned for the overnight trip.

HOTELS

Each night there will be a hotel ready with two twin rooms. For check ins, you will need to have a form of ID to hand and will have to use a credit card on arrival to guarantee such things as breakfast and drinks. All hotel extras are your responsibility. The tour will cover your room booking only.

Please ensure you check out of the hotels in plenty of time (at least 30 mins before). And please leave all rooms and areas clean and tidy.

MEETINGS AND TRANSPORT

Please be early for all checkouts, sound checks, car pick ups etc. Do not leave people waiting or let us fall behind schedule. If you are late, this might result in the band incurring additional costs.

All hotels are a swift walk away from the venue and will have nearby or on-site parking. If you are in need to travel further for amenities, please ask the hotel services for guidance.

We will be using a 3-seater Ford Transit Van to ensure everything can fit but please don’t pack more than necessary as it won’t fit. The whole trip equates to approx. 3000 miles leading our fuel expenditure to £400. To enter The Netherlands, we will be using the Harwich to Hook Holland ferry and to return to the UK, we will use the Calais to Dover Ferry. We have allowed extra time between stops to ensure that the journey runs smoothly.

In the van, you will be required to take driving in turns to ensure that we travel safely and feel energised.

RUNNING TIMES

It is imperative that all shows run to time in all venues. In order to ensure that the event runs smoothly, you must aim to be at the venue at least an hour befor your set time is scheduled.
