到西藏「拼車」的 5 點注意事項和建議

「世界屋脊」西藏近年成為了不少旅客夢寐以求的目的地,有別於其他城市,西藏幅員遼闊,景點與景點之間動輒要三至四小時車程,加上部分路程比較顛簸,亦欠缺可靠的公共交通工具,大部分到西藏旅遊的朋友也需要以包車的形式租用汽車及聘請司機到各地遊玩。由於牽涉的價錢並不便宜,對獨遊以及與三五知己到西藏旅遊的朋友自然就更加昂貴,因而衍生出近年頗為流行的「拼車」。

所謂「拼車」,就是來自五湖四海的遊客,剛巧踫上有相若的行程,便共同租用車輛,而牽涉的費用將由每位旅客平均分擔。但由於網上就拼車的資訊和建議可謂五花八門,總結了多位西藏旅遊專家的經驗和分享,我嘗試歸納出以下 5 點注意事項和建議:

 

1. 拼車方法

一般拼車有三種方法:(1)找中國的旅行社代為尋找拼車的旅伴。一般來說,這是最昂貴的做法,而且旅客與中國旅行社的協議一般不受本港法律及監管機構的保障。(2)在網上的留言板,或者旅館內的壁報板,張貼自己的行程和聯絡方法,招募旅伴。這做法自然有它潛在的風險,曝光的個人資料也有可能被不法之徒挪用。(3)找相熟的西藏朋友推介司機及尋找旅伴,但這對一般初次到西藏的旅客來說,以乎未必適用。

 

2. 汽車種類

市面不少人推介的越野車靈活性一般較高,而且速度快,但因只能搭載四位乘客,每位旅客需要分擔的車資便較為昂貴。另一種車則為商務車,雖然速度較越野車慢,但勝在車廂較為寬敞,座位亦較舒適,對不習慣長途車程的旅客尤其合適。不過旅客也要留意,汽車的舒適度和性能與個別的汽車生產商及車齡有關,建議出發前可多向司機詢問汽車的狀況以及與熟悉西藏的朋友多作交流。

3. 車費條款

每一家旅行社和拼車的中介公司都有不同的條約或要求,因此建議旅客應在出發前細閱合約條款,理解車費所涵蓋的範圍,例如是否已涵蓋汽車保險及個人意外保險的費用、司機的飲食及住宿的安排或半夜啟程的額外收費等。

大部分拼車的司機也可包辦導遊的工作,向旅客介紹景點的歷史和推介旅程中的住宿及飲食安排,因此司機的經驗和對當地社會的認識和了解便變得十分重要。若果你希望透過旅程對西藏的政治、經濟及社會文化有更深刻的了解,可以考慮聘請當地有經驗和學識的領隊同行,獨特的講解可擴闊你對西藏的認識和想像。

有計傾,啱嘴型

4. 安全問題

以往曾聽聞不少案例,在拼車的旅途上出現失竊的情況,畢竟拼車的旅伴來自五湖四海,所以尤其在大型車輛內,應分外留意個人財產以及隨身物品,以免讓他人有機可乘。

而一般而言,盡可能與一至兩位朋友同行亦是比較穩妥的做法,既可以在旅途中互相照應,亦可共用同一間酒店房間,免卻與陌生人同房的安全和尷尬問題。

另外,由於行程往往需時頗長,在公路上的商店亦比較稀少,除了隨身攜帶好個人護理產品或醫療藥物外,亦要攜帶足夠的禦寒衣物以抵禦西藏日夜頗大的溫差。而有關高山反應的問題,可參考另一篇文章

5. 與旅伴多作交流

由於每人的旅遊習慣也有所不同,對景點的安排、住宿及餐廳的選擇自然也有不同的看法。若果可以的話,盡可能與旅伴在拼車前已就所有細節及安排達成共識。

當然,視乎旅途中的突發事情以及各位團友的身體狀況,行程的安排亦應作出相應的調整,所以在旅途中依然要與各位旅伴保持緊密的溝通,坦誠交流對各樣安排的看法,以便照顧好不同人的需要和要求。若果最後真的需要在旅途中拆夥的話,便應該就車資的攤分達成共識,以免日後出現不必要的爭拗。
