If you are traveling on your own, check all addresses, cities, telephones, names of all persons, hotels and accommodation, as well as distance or mileage and costs via an Internet browser. Write down or photograph all data, important telephone numbers and reservations and keep them in a safe place always with you. Always carry documents, cash, credit cards and important data with your body, preferably in an inconspicuous bag around your waist under your clothes or in your inside pocket.
For minors, if they travel independently, when crossing the state border, we recommend that they have the consent of both parents to travel abroad, which is certified by the court or municipality.
If you decide to travel through a travel agency, travel through member agencies of the National Association of Travel Agencies of the Republic of Serbia (www.yuta.rs). Agencies have professional guides who take care of the group that travels with them.
We also recommend that you get information about the regulations, culture and customs, traditions, behavior, possible restrictions on the transfer of goods (food, medicine, etc.) and more at the diplomatic-consular mission of the country you are traveling to. You can also find out through the website of the Serbian Travelers Club www.serbiatravelers.org the experiences and useful advice of those who have returned from traveling abroad, as well as to get acquainted with the places, customs, regulations, food traditions, behavior and dress of the country you are traveling to.
Travel in company, travel with someone who knows a world language or the language of the country you are traveling to, and if you are traveling alone and do not speak the language of the country you are traveling to, get a small dictionary with basic phrases related to travel. Knowing a few words of the language can help solve many situations.
If you travel by train, you can check the timetable of all trains in Europe via the Internet browser, find out practical advice and information about railways around the world, exact prices and types of trains, as well as some promotions, benefits or other useful information.
If you travel by bus, the sites www.eurolines.com, www.lasta.co.rs, www.bas.rs, www.srbija-tours.com contain information on international lines, prices and routes, bus companies that connect EU cities with larger cities in the Republic of Serbia.
If you travel by plane, there are so-called cheap flights, which are sometimes the cheapest way to travel between the two countries. There are several sites that can be used to search for cheap flights, the most famous being www.skyscanner.net, www.whichbudget.com and www.low-cost-airline-guide.com. Remember that on most cheap flights there is a strict limit on the weight of luggage and that any overdraft is expensive. If you decide to travel by plane, check the airport taxes, if any, and remember that the control of hand luggage is very strict, so that you do not carry liquids and objects such as scissors, knives, etc. in your hand luggage. You can see the exact lists of items that are allowed in hand luggage on the airline's websites.
Before departure, we recommend that you look on the Internet for information on local transport in the city you are traveling to. In large European cities, the subway is often the best option, due to the large crowds. If you plan to use the subway for several days, we recommend a ticket for more rides (it is cheaper).
We remind drivers that before traveling abroad:
We recommend drivers to get detailed information about the traffic regulations that are valid for them, the cost of travel, the required mileage before going on a trip to one of the EU countries on the websites www.viamichelin.com, AMSS www.amss.rs. We also recommend the use of GPS devices.
During the trip, we advise drivers to take more frequent breaks while driving for rest and to make a road plan before departure with the help of specialized sites on the Internet.
During their stay abroad, drivers should strictly respect traffic rules and traffic signs, given the high fines for traffic violations in EU countries.
Health is most important! Before the trip, check your health condition and get information through the website of the Republic Health Insurance Institute www.rzzo.rs, about the conditions of health care abroad. Inquire about voluntary health insurance services and which services you pay for personally, and then you are refunded, and which services the insurance pays for you. Don't forget to bring your health insurance policy with you, which you took out before departure, and in case of health problems during the trip, contact your local doctor.
If you are taking medication at the time of departure, make sure that your medication is allowed in the country you are traveling to. It is best to bring a spare amount of necessary medication with you.
Tap water is not recommended for drinking in some countries, so always ask about it when you arrive in a city. When you travel all day, you are often not able to wash your hands, so it is useful to have wet wipes with alcohol in your pocket, as well as a bottle of water and something to snack on in your backpack.
BE "IN CONNECTION"
Before traveling, it would be good to check the correctness of the mobile phone and charger (sometimes your safety may depend on the mobile phone), as well as memorize the phone numbers of diplomatic and consular missions of the Republic of Serbia, the country you are traveling to. (www.mfa.gov.rs)
Check on the website of your mobile operator, which are the most favorable roaming partners, so that you do not run out of credit abroad.

PASSPORT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENT ABROAD - SHOW IT ONLY TO OFFICIALS.
If you lose your travel document abroad, report the loss of the document to the police authority of the country in which you reside and request a confirmation of the loss report. With this confirmation, contact the diplomatic and consular mission of the Republic of Serbia, which will, according to the procedure, issue you a travel document with the validity period required for return to Serbia, up to a maximum of 60 days. Before returning to Serbia, check if you need a visa for countries in transit.
