Hello, I am planning a trip with my parents from London - Paris - Lucerne - Venice- Rome, beginning May 25th. I have sent my passport for UK visa, it is due back April 15th,. then i will apply for schengen visa, which I should have by April 30th.
1 - If I wait for my visas, will it be too late to book trains between these cities, and hotels? I would be booking 25 days in advance.
OR Should i book right now for refundable hotels and train tickets? Then when my visa comes, i can book cheaper ones and cancel these ones? SO confused!!!
I couldnt send my passport earlier since they would accept it 90 days before travel, and I had to go to Canada from States for a business trip. Just got back and sent off the passport for uk visas.
