Travel Check List

  • DO NOT PACK: Carry on your person at all times: Passport, Money, and Printed Confirmation of Travel Insurance.
  • FOR CARRY-ON BAG: Medicines and Valuables
  • INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS: Because of increased security at the airport, we recommend checking in for international flights at least 2 1/2 – 3 hours prior to departure.
  • ITINERARY: Leave a copy of your itinerary with a family member, so they will know where you are each day and that they can reach you in case of an emergency. They can also call Catholic Journeys at 800-715-6670.
  • MONEY: We suggest that you exchange US dollars for the currency of the country you are going to visit, with the exception of Mexico, Medjugorje, and the Holy Land. We suggest that you get at least $100.00 to start and then you can change additional money along the way as needed. ATM machines are available in larger cities.
  • NAME TAGS: Please wear your name tags on the trip…. at least long enough for the guide and everyone to get to know each other.
  • PASSPORTS: Make sure your passport is current. Your passport is very valuable …. do not pack your passport in your luggage or leave your passport in your hotel room at any time. Keep a separate copy of the two front pages of your passport in case it is lost or stolen…. this should be packed separately from your actual passport.
  • TIPPING: Tips are not normally included in your package unless clearly specified. You may wish to leave a gratuity for your driver and for your tour escort at the end of each service performed. The recommended amount for the Driver is $3.00 – $5.00 USD per person, per day, and $10.00 USD per person for the Tour Guide. Total $13.00-$15.00 USD per person. You may also want to bring a few extra dollars to leave in the churches where you will be celebrating Mass and for any local guides, you may have for special city tours or museums and for the house staff when staying in Medjugorje.
