Things to know before traveling to Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary

CURRENCY:
The local currency in the Czech Republic is the Koruna (CZK). The local currency in Hungary is the Hungarian Forint (HUF) The local currency in Germany and Austria is the Euro (EUR).

The most convenient and cheapest way to acquire money in Europe is via an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) or Bancomat as they are often referred to. Check with your bank in advance concerning the suitability of your account / card overseas and any international fees that will be applied. You can obtain local currencies easily at airports and major train stations, but be sure to bring some extra emergency cash in a major currency that can be exchanged if the ATMs are not functioning.

COBBLESTONES:
In many Central European cities streets are made of cobblestones. On this trip this is the case in Czech Republic and Hungary especially. It is recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/case at home and bring a backpack instead.

SUMMER:
Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (over 100°F), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

ACCOMMODATION:
Accommodation we intend to use in Cesky Krumlov is full of charm and character and it perfectly represents the spirit of medieval central European town. The rustic charm though means the comfort may be slightly lower to the rest of accommodation we use on this trip.

Please note that single accommodation is not available for the one night in Cesky Krumlov.

EASTERN EUROPEAN FOOD:
Food in Europe is varied and differs significantly between countries and regions. Expect to sample delicious local meals in almost every location you’ll visit on this trip. However, if you do not feel like having a local delicacy, world type food is also widely available, especially in bigger cities. European diet is mostly meat based; vegetarians might find the menu selection less varied than they would see at home.

Vegetarianism is not as common in this region and choices may be limited to soups, salads, bread, cheese, fruit, yogurt, eggs etc. Vegans and those on gluten-free diets will find this region very challenging and may need to supplement meals with their own supplies from supermarkets and markets. Wherever possible we will cater for dietary needs for included meals, but there may be times when those with special requirements may need to provide their own.

TRANSPORTATION:
Some of the transportation on this trip is done by train. European trains are comfortable and often decked out with air-conditioning. Toilets are always available. Some of the trains have snack bars (or vending machines) and power outlets next to the seats but that cannot be guaranteed on every journey. Train travel is a fast way to traverse long distances, allowing you to avoid traffic jams and arrive right into the city center.

Please note that you will have to carry your own luggage on and off the train, and also up or down few flights of stairs as unfortunately some of the stations may not have lifts. Make sure the luggage doesn’t exceed our weight and size recommendations.

VISAS:
Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveler. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it’s important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Your consultant will also be happy to point you in the right direction with acquiring visas. Visas can take several weeks to process, so familiarize yourself with any requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for processing time.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:
Travel insurance is compulsory for all our trips. We require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Please ask your travel agent or Club Adventures team member for insurance options at time of booking.
