What additional major expenses will I incur?
- Transportation to the place where the expedition begins (the staging point) and from the place where the expedition ends is not included. We can arrange flights at your request.
- Wearing the right clothes is essential. You may need to purchase additional outdoor clothing. That said, you will not have to buy a parka, as we include the official Quark parka in the cost of your expedition and we loan you waterproof boots. Review our packing list.
- Gratuities or tips are always at your discretion. We recommend that you budget $10 to $15 per person per day, if you are pleased with the service on board. Gratuities are collected anonymously at the end of each voyage. They are distributed among staff and crew. Payment can be made in cash or charged to your shipboard account.
- It is a condition of booking any Arctic 2011 and Antarctic 2011-12 voyage that you and all members of your party have comprehensive travel insurance coverage, with a minimum of $50,000 of emergency medical coverage.
