Enjoy a last morning in Rotterdam, grab some lunch before heading back to the coach and back to London. We'll be back in London around 10pm.


ROOM Hostel

In the centre of Rotterdam sits ROOM Hostel, a one of a kind 'themed hostel'. Every room in this art deco building is different, so it is the perfect place for Rainbowdam to celebrate being different.

More than just a hostel

ROOM Hostel will be our base, but it is so much more than just a hostel. Everyone gets free breakfast, and the Dutch like their breakfast sweet (eg. a national dish is chocolate sprinkles on toast), so just go nuts and get some cavities.

As the day turns into night, the hostel bar becomes the centre for our Rainbowdam nightlife and is the ideally start location for our bar crawl.

Frequently asked questions

And we would like to speak to you!

We're best reached on email at However, you can also reach us by calling +44 (0)282 003 2078.

Excellent, we're going to do everything we can to facilitate that.

It is really important that we know as early as possible, ideally before booking. Please note that if we need to arrange alternate arrangements there may be additional costs associated, but we will let you know if that is the case.

Absolutely. It's important you let us know as early as possible (ideally 28 days), however we will attempt to facilitate name changes after this time (it all depends on whether our suppliers will let us change your name at a late date).

We charge a £10 name change fee, which reflect our costs in changing your name with our suppliers.

It always costs less to find someone to take your place (please see other answer), however if that's not possible we have the following cancellation policy.

We have a cancellation fee that is charged based on how many days before travel you decide to cancel:

  1. Less than 28 days before departure: the entire paid balance will be charged (100%).
  2. 28 days to 56 days before departure: the deposit, plus 50% of any paid balance will be charged (a refund of the remainder will be given).
  3. 56 days before departure: only the deposit will be charged, and a refund on the remaining balance will be given.

You will need to pay the remainder of the trip balance by May 18, 2019.

Yes. If you would like to join this trip we recommend placing a deposit as soon as possible.

As a small company, we take a double layered approach to ensure our clients are protected, giving us the strongest protection available within the travel industry. You are welcome to contact either of the companies below to verify our customer protection mechanisms.

In the first instance, all client funds are paid into a trust account held by Serenity Travel Trusts; this is an account that is legally separate from our business - run and regulated by solicitors - that holds client funds so that they can be reimbursed to our customers in the event that our business goes insolvent.

On top of this protection, we have a form of insurance called Financial Failure Insurance with Affirma Insurance. This acts a top up in the event that extra money is needed to reimburse customers or to repatriate customers in the event of our financial failure (insolvency).

Lastly, you are of course protected by your payment card issuer, and could obtain a full refund through them if any other form of reimbursement failed.

We want everyone to feel safe when booking on an experience provided by AwesomeTrip, so please contact us if you have any questions!

You should go ahead and book on the trip. If an exam conflicts with the trip dates or if an exam is after the trip dates, you can contact us and we will issue a full refund.

No problem, if your exam will conflict with the trip, or if the exam is after the trip, just let us know and we will issue you with a full refund.
