I have booked an all inclusive (flights, hotel, excursions, food, etc.) tour for 8 days around Eastern Europe, starting from Munich (2 nights), then Prague (2 nights), Budapest (2 nights), Vienna (1 night) and Salzburg (1 night).
I have a confirmation from the tour operator of my flights (dates and times, etc.) and an itinerary with a list of hotels we will be staying at. Having looked through information required for Schengen visa, I noticed that it states that I must have confirmation booking from the hotel, with names and exact dates.
I called the tour operator and since the tour doesn't start until 1.5 months from now, they don't have specific details of hotel bookings as of yet and told me that confirmation booking from them - alongside the itinerary and list of hotels should be sufficient.
Is this right? or will my application be rejected? I noticed that in the itinerary they list a number or hotels for each city - am assuming depending on price, they will book and put us up in the cheapest.
I'm worried now because all I have is a confirmation from the tour operator that simply states that I am confirmed on the tour and no further details regarding hotels (not even addresses and contact details - just a list of hotel names).
