What should I pack?
The key to packing for this trip is to bring lots of layers because the weather can change very quickly and will vary in different regions. You could experience cold temperatures in the highlands of Peru and hot weather in Ecuador and the Galapagos. You’ll receive a more detailed packing list in the Tineri app before your trip.
What items do I need to purchase that are not part of an everyday wardrobe?
You’ll certainly need a comfortable pair of trekking shoes. It’s also a great idea to bring a cap, gloves and some sunglasses. You’ll also need swimwear for snorkelling and dips in the sea.
Before you travel, we’ll make sure that you have a full list of packing suggestions available on the Tineri app.
What’s the luggage allowance?
For your flights, the luggage allowance is one checked-in bag weighing up to 23kg and a hand luggage bag weighing up to 8kg.
During the train journey to Machu Picchu, the luggage allowance is 6kg and your main luggage will be transported to your next hotel after Machu Picchu.
Can I bring a suitcase or do I need a backpack?
It’s up to you whether you bring a suitcase or backpack. We recommend bringing whichever you find more comfortable because you’ll need to be able to carry your baggage.
What plugs are used, do I need to bring a travel adaptor?
Generally, plugs in Peru are the same as in most of Europe. They have two round prongs and the standard voltage is 220 V with a frequency of 60 Hz. You will need to bring an adapter with you if you’re travelling from a country that doesn’t use this plug type. Occasionally, you do find American, ‘type-A’ sockets which also fit the sockets in Ecuador.
Generally, plugs in Ecuador have either two flat prongs or three prongs (two flat and one round). The standard voltage is 110 V with a frequency of 60 Hz. You will need to bring an adapter with you if you’re travelling from a country that doesn’t use this plug type.
