Before you set off on your trip, you should obtain destination-related and general travel information. For example, you may need a visa or have to check into a quarantine hotel due to the Covid pandemic. Detailed information on these and other topics that may be important for your trip can be found on the website of the Federal Foreign Office.

In addition to the entry requirements, you should also find out about medical aspects before you fly or drive on vacation. This is because certain travel precautions often have to be taken due to the geographical location, climate or simply national regulations. The Center for Travel Medicine provides helpful information on travel vaccinations and many other topics.

However, each destination differs not only in terms of medical and other requirements, but also because of the prevailing climate. For example, air and water temperatures can vary greatly. In some countries you can expect a dry and cold climate, in others a tropical, humid and warm climate. Rainy seasons and other meteorological conditions must also be taken into account. So it’s best to find out about all the details in advance.

If you want to play it completely safe when planning your trip due to the factors mentioned above, it is best to take out suitable travel insurance. This way, you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest without having to worry about the worst-case scenario.
