FAQs

What to wear on your Scotland Vacation?

  • Dress comfortably chic, in waterproof shoes that you can walk in.
  • Pack your favorite waterproof trench coat, but leave the umbrella at home. The harsh wind will blow your umbrella inside out the second you go outside.   
  • Layers are key. Have fun by adding a chic scarf or hat!
  • Jeans are very common in Scotland but don’t forget the leggings to layer up when the wind picks up.
  • You can’t go wrong with a leather bag or backpack to sustain the weather while staying on trend.
  • The sun does shine every now and then so bring along a fun pair of shades to compliment your outfit.
  • If you forget something, no worries! There are plenty of trendy shops and stores that carry everything you will need to stand out on your trip!

Phone plan?

  • For verizon users, call Verizon to activate your travel pass. It’s $10/day and your phone functions the same way abroad as it does at home. Most phone services now have similar options but be sure to call your service to be sure.

Exchanging money?

  • We suggest going to your bank before you leave to exchange your money. Exchanging money at the airport can be more expensive than doing so with your bank. The other option would be to use your ATM card and taking out money directly once in your destination. You will need to call your bank ahead of time to let them know you will be traveling and find out any withdraw maximums to avoid freezing your bank cards.

Do my credit cards work there?

  • Make sure you call your credit cards before you leave to let them know you will be traveling.
  • Find out from your credit card if there are any international fees

Should I tip?

  • In Scotland, the general rule for tipping is 10%.
  • For any experiences, tips are more than welcome.

How do I not look like a tourist?

  • If you need a map use the one on your phone.
  • Pay attention to your volume level when in public places. Americans tend to be louder than most.

Shopping?

  • Our Scotland travel packages offer a variety of shopping experiences from generic retail outlets to small hidden shops scattered throughout the cities. One of the most popular shopping destinations are the villages in Edinburgh, that offer chic designer stores within walking distance of hotels and restaurants.

Do I need to buy an adaptor?

  • Yes, you will need to buy an adaptor. If you forget an adaptor, airports will definitely have one. Here is a link to an option that can be used in multiple countries.

Will my hair dryer or straightener work?

  • Most of the hotels or Airbnb’s will have hair dryers. If you bring your own straightener they will not work. You can either buy a cheap one while you are there or go with natural hair during your stay.

Can I drink the water?

  • Yes! The tap water in Scotland is safe to drink. However, if you want to play it safe water bottles are readily available.

What’s the weather like?

  • The weather in Scotland is very unpredictable. Be prepared for clouds, rain, wind and the occasional sun. Generally speaking, the east coast tends to be cool and dry while the west coast experiences more rainfall. Don’t fret, however, as the rain normally does not last for long and when it does, everyone else is enjoying the wonders of Scotland, so you should too.

Shopping?

The Gannet: Scotland Vacation Packages

1155 Argyle Street, Glasgow, United Kingdom, G3 8TB

Probably one of the highest Scotland haunts on our to-try list, The Gannet was love at first photo. Gorgeous dishes prepared with all the best ingredients Mother Nature (and farmers!) have to offer are served in a minimalist, low-key setting alongside a deep wine and cocktail list. Though we were drooling over the perfectly pink meat preparations, this to-die-for spot also serves innovative vegetarian fare.

Inver restaurant, Strathlachlan, Strachur, Argyll & Bute

Reading through the menu here will have your mouth salivating and your tongue insanely tingling. The ingredients and combinations sound so delicious. If you’re a fan of innovative farm to table cuisine, this place will knock your proverbial socks off. There are both a la carte and prix fixe options, and a rock solid, trendy but not too, kids menu. (Littles will love the Bento box!) The natural setting and simple interior feel almost too perfect! 

You’ll enjoy this as a part of one of the best Scotland Vacation Packages.
