    Passports & Visas

    A passport is required for Europe vacations. A visa is not required for Europeans staying up to three months, and for EU citizens there is no limit. US, Canada and Australia nationals can also stay for up to three months. From most other countries and for longer durations a visa is required, so please check with the Europe Tourist Office for more information.

    Europe Currency

    Not all European countries use the Euro, so it is important to find out exactly what the monetary unit of your country of destination is.

    Here are some examples :

  • Austria - The Euro

  • France - The Euro

  • Ireland - The Euro

  • Portugal - The Euro

  • Spain - The Euro
  • Czech Rep - The Czech Crown

  • Greece - The Euro

  • Italy - The Euro

  • Scotland - Great Britain Pound

  • Switzerland - The Swiss Franc

  • When you know what country you are likely to be visiting, then have a look at the Currency Converter to see how far your money goes.

    Using Your Credit Card

    I would always recommend calling your credit card companies before you leave, just to advise them of where you are going. The reason for this? Some credit card companies will block a transaction in a foreign country, as a security measure. This makes sense as it would be a transaction outwith your normal usage behaviour, and it is there to protect you.

    Europe Airport Information

    Get as much information about your arrival airport as you can. Find out if there are any hand luggage restrictions, car hire and general airport facilities etc. See Airline and Airport Links for all you need to know.

    Europe Weather Forecasts

    What's the weather like? Get up to date weather reports for where you are heading, especially handy if you are planning a last minute short break. Europe Weather From Yahoo will show forecasts for up to 10 days.

    Language Books, Maps & Travel Guides

    Depending on where you are going, sometimes a language book can be worth its weight in gold. The simplest phrase, said in the right language can get you what you want or where you want to go, and reduce the chances of you becoming frustrated. The same applies to travel guides. See Maps International for more Europe travel information.

    If flying, shop around for deals on the Lowest Air Fares and hotels.

    Travel Insurance

    The importance of travel insurance should not be overlooked, so remember to go properly prepared for the unexpected. Have a look at the page on Travel Insurance Uncovered before deciding on your travel needs.

    Airport Transfers

    If you're arranging your own airport transfers, never wait until you arrive at your destination. Holiday airports can be chaotic, especially in high season, so it is wise to arrange transfers before your departure. Check out Holiday Taxis who can arrange any type of transfer for any size of party in over 3,000 resorts wordwide.

    Lounge Passes
