  • All O.A.T. Trip Leaders are fluent in both English and the local language. So while all tours and commentary will be in English, you’ll also enjoy the benefit of having someone on hand to teach you helpful phrases and translate when necessary.
  • Yes—and even if your group of travelers isn't large enough to fill a departure, you can still earn free travel by becoming a Group Leader. Read more about our Group Travel program.
  • Yes—currently, you can reserve a private departure with as few as 8 travelers. Beginning in 2015, you can do so with as few as 4 travelers. Reserving a private departure is the ideal way to enjoy family trips for travelers of all ages, girlfriend getaways, reunions, anniversaries, and celebrations of all kinds. Read more about our private departures.
  • While we specialize in vacations for travelers over 50, you can bring children aged 13 and older on O.A.T. trips. Please note, however, that many of our adventures include lengthy transfers that may not be enjoyable for younger travelers.
  • We are unable to mix and match extensions and trips. However, on select adventures, if you wish to remain overseas after your trip to explore on your own, we can arrange for you to fly home up to 30 days after the conclusion of your trip. View our Breakaway policy.
  • We can usually accommodate special dietary requirements (vegetarian, salt-free, low-calorie, kosher, etc.); be sure to notify our Adventure Specialists before you depart if you have not already done so. If you prefer a special airline meal on your international flight, please call the airline directly to reconfirm your requests after you receive your airline tickets.
  • Most Overseas Adventure Travel trips are not wheelchair or motorized scooter accessible, as wheelchair or motorized scooter assistance or accessibility in international destinations cannot be guaranteed. Be sure to ask your Adventure Specialist. If your trip is wheelchair-accessible and you require a wheelchair, you must provide your own small, collapsible wheelchair. On some tours, travelers requiring walkers, crutches, or other mobility aids may have difficulty moving around due to cobblestones or other uneven terrain, and should consider other O.A.T. destinations. O.A.T. cannot accommodate motorized scooters of any kind on any international trips. For more information, review the"Medical Issues" section of our Terms & Conditions.
  • No. O.A.T. specializes in foreign travel. Limiting our focus in this way helps us bring you the most discovery-rich travel experience at the very best value.
  • If length is a factor when choosing a trip, click the “Find Your Adventure” button on the top of each page. Here, you can sort your search results “By Duration” and easily determine which adventures are best for you.
  • If you're interested in receiving promotional materials by mail--or if you're already on our mailing list, but would like to receive mail better tailored to your interests--tell us what destinations you’d like to visit by filling out your Travel Planner.
  • In general, we can take bookings up to 15 days prior to departures for most O.A.T. adventures. At that time, we're required to finalize our passenger information with the airlines and hotels, and we release all unused space back to the vendors. On select tours, we are able to take bookings within 5-7 days of departure, subject to air availability. All bookings inside 45 days of departure are by request and are confirmed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our Adventure Specialists for more details
  • All O.A.T. Land Tours feature groups of no more than 10-16 travelers. However, Small Ship adventures can range from 10-24 travelers, depending on the size of your ship.
  • Feeling healthy and confident of your mobility is essential if you want to fully enjoy your trip abroad. If you're considering an O.A.T. adventure, you should live an active lifestyle, enjoy good health and mobility, be comfortable participating in 6-8 hours of daily physical activities and sightseeing, and be able to walk 3-6 miles unassisted over the course of each day. For information on the physical requirements of specific adventures, please find your trip in the “Our Adventures” section at the top of our homepage and click “What to Know” on the trip page.
  • Due to limited availability and the popularity of our trips, we are unable to hold space without a deposit. However, once you make a deposit you'll have a good deal of flexibility. You can transfer your deposit without penalty to any trip or any date, provided you are more than 121 days from departure on a Small Ship adventure, or more than 91 days from departure on a Small Group Adventure. For more information about the deposit amount required to secure your reservation, click here.
  • There are no restrooms onboard the minibuses and coaches used on some O.A.T. trips. However, all coaches and minibuses make frequent stops to ensure your comfort for the whole ride. Often, we'll break up a long transfer with an included walking tour in a location of interest en route to our destination, so you'll have ample time to stretch your legs as well.
  • While your accommodations will vary from trip to trip, we use our worldwide buying power to negotiate low rates on quality hotels—and pass the savings on to you. O.A.T. chooses smaller lodgings, sometimes with an emphasis on authenticity, rather than amenities (though you'll typically have your own private bath or shower). On the water, we feature privately owned ships, private charters, and small ocean ships. You can view a selection of accommodations when you select any trip from the “Our Adventures” tab at the top of our homepage.
  • To ensure that our optional pre- and post-trip extensions have enough participants to run, we only offer extensions on select departures throughout a destination's travel season. Airline schedules may also limit us to offering extensions on certain dates only.
