Travel Checklist


  • Do you have a valid passport? 
  • Is your passport is valid for at least six months after your scheduled return to the Australia?
  • Have you have completed the ‘next of kin’ section in your passport?
  • Does the name on your travel documents exactly match the name on your passport?

Passport Information


You will require a passport for travel to Europe, that is valid for at least six months after the date you intend to return to Australia.

Always keep a separate note of your passport number, place and date of issue, or preferably a photocopy of the back pages, packed separately from your passport. It is also recommended that you leave a copy with a friend at home and carry with you another form of identification (such as a driving licence). All of this will be useful if your passport is lost or stolen.

Important note on visas and the Schengen Area

During our Budapest to the Black Sea River Cruise, we visit Bulgaria and Croatia which are not part of the Schengen Area, and border controls are in operation upon entering and exiting the Schengen Area. Please check with the relevant country's tourism board to find out if you need a visa and/or any additional documentation for visiting these destinations.
