  • Expiration dates on passports (covering duration of stay)
  • Copies of passports to be carried by school leader.
  • EHIC carried by all.
  • Any non UK citizen students requiring a visa.
  • Review flight arrangements just prior to travel including baggage allowances.

  • You have adequate group travel insurance in place (see our terms and conditions).

Medical services

The medical and emergency services in Croatia are usually excellent and quick to respond.  Emergency treatment costs are covered by the production of a passport and EHIC.

 

Risks 

There are no unusual or inherent security or health risks associated with travel to Croatia.  It is a generally safe country with a low crime and terrorist threat level.  No additional inoculations are required although any particular medical concerns should be addressed to an individual’s GP.

 

Weather

Summer months,  June –  August are typically hot and sunny.  Spring, April – May and Autumn, September – October are usually very pleasant and not so hot.  Rain is always a possibility in Croatia so it is essential to bring adequate rain wear and a jacket in case of inclement weather
