Please check the validation date of your passport. It is best to have a copy of the front page (with your photo and passport number) with you kept in a separate location from your passport, in case your passport gets lost or stolen.

  • Visa

Make inquires whether a visa is needed for any of the countries you plan to visit. You, as a traveller, are obliged to obtain, on his/her own, a visa for the country in question. Kiteloop shall not be held responsible for the decisions made by custom authorities, police authorities or any other state authority banning you from entering a certain country.

  • Agency Invoice

Invoice will be sent to you by email after you had paid for the trip. If for any reason you haven’t received your invoice until now, please contact us.

Airline information

Please review your airline tickets carefully and reconfirm your international flights 72 hours in advance. Please note that you should check-in for your international flights 3 hours prior to the scheduled departure.

Currency

The official currency in Montenegro is Euro (EUR) and all prices are quoted in Euro. We recommend that you exchange some money into Euros before you come or at the airport when you arrive. ATM machines will be accessible, but only in cities. For spending money (meals, guide tips, snacks and beverages) we suggest an allowance of 200€-300€ per person for holidays.

Baggage

Many airlines impose a maximum weight limit of 23 kg. Please see your airline’s website for luggage weight and size restrictions. For your comfort we recommend you travel as light as possible. One main piece, preferably a soft lockable bag for easy handling, a backpack or a hold-all would be most suitable. Daypack – 15 to 20 litres is sufficient.

General items you will need are: comfortable and breathable clothes, changeable and washable (cotton shirts and t-shirts), sportswear (shorts or tights), comfortable, lightweight shoes and socks for outdoor sports activities, sun hat, sunglasses, lightweight raincoat and a set of warm clothes (sweatshirt or track suit) because evenings can be chilly near the sea. Don’t forget comfortable sleepwear and personal hygiene items.

This gear list has been created to help you choose your equipment for the trip. Try to bring only what is necessary. Remember, all required gear for your holidays is provided. Next to your usual clothing, you should consider bringing along some other items, which will make your activities more enjoyable.

Insurance

We recommend you purchase trip insurance although all our students are ensured by our local insurance company with a policy that covers accidents en route. In addition, if you need medical assistance or evacuation assistance during the trip, Kiteloop cannot cover these fees.

You will be guided by experienced and licensed members of our team and because of these qualities your instructors/guides will always operate in safety-conscious manner. All of our instructors/guides are fluent in English. If you arranged for transfer, you will be welcomed by our driver in the lobby of the airport. The driver will have a KITELOOP sign. After settling into your accommodation, you will have time to meet the Kiteloop host and have an briefing.
