What was a popular tourist destination before the Yugoslav wars is becoming popular again. Montenegro is now frequently listed as one of the top travel destinations in all of Europe because of its beautiful coast along the Adriatic Sea and its mountain ranges to the north. Travellers can spend their days on the beach soaking up the sun and exploring the mountain terrain and ancient towns. In fact, Yahoo Travel named the country as the second-fastest growing tourist market in the world.
If you are looking to travel somewhere unique and are considering Montenegro as one of your options, making travel insurance part of your decision will ensure you have a peaceful and relaxing vacation.
Travel advice for Montenegro
Canadians planning to travel to Montenegro must have a passport that is valid for at least six months past their departure date from the country, and visas are required only for stays longer than 90 days. Make sure to get an entry and exit stamp in your passport. If you are planning to stay with family or at a private residence, you must register with the local police immediately after you arrive.
You should carry identification with you at all times and make a copy of your passport in case it is lost or seized by authorities. Pickpocketing and demonstrations can occur. Pay attention to your surroundings at all times. For your safety, it’s recommended that you avoid the country’s border with Kosovo and any areas of security force activities along the southern border.
Montenegro operates on a cash-based economy, and it’s recommended you travel with cash as banking facilities are limited. The euro (EUR) is the accepted currency. An increasing number of hotels and restaurants are now accepting credit cards as payment.
