List of legal necessities before going on holiday

Summer is in full swing and so is the holiday season. Are you ready to go on holiday so that your stay at the seaside or on a sightseeing tour does not become more expensive or end before it has begun?

Travel insurance

Going on holiday without travel insurance is definitely not recommended. The cost of medical treatment abroad or, heaven forbid, repatriation can be extremely high. Travelers who plan to engage in extreme sports during their vacation should carefully review the policy in addition to the insurance policy to make sure their activities are covered.

Tip: Flight cancellations can make holidays unpleasant. Learn what your rights are.

Rental car insurance

If you are planning to rent a car on holiday, make sure you also take out liability insurance for any damage you may cause by driving. Similarly, make sure you have insurance for any damage you may cause to your rental car. At best, repairing a wrecked car can make your holiday more expensive.

Visas

Fortunately, the number of countries with which the Czech Republic has a visa requirement has declined rapidly in recent years. The list of countries for which a visa is required can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (www.mzv.cz). Without the necessary visa, your holiday will end at the airport.

Register with the “drozd” system and get copies of your personal documents

If you are flying to an exotic destination or to a problematic country, register with the “system of voluntary registration of Czech citizens” drozd.mzv.cz. In case of problems at your destination, the Czech authorities will notify you and keep track of you. Also make sure you have a copy of your passport and, if necessary, your visa in case of loss or theft.

Think about medical records

If you’re travelling with someone who has medical restrictions or regularly takes medication, make a list of such medications. It can come in handy if you run out of medication or have another unforeseen event while abroad.

Consider your social media activity

Showing off a photo from the beach to colleagues who are sweating at their computers in the office is very “cool”, but it also sends a pretty clear message that you’re not at home. This can attract the attention of various elements who may not be entirely comfortable with your home furnishings. So during your summer holidays, consider activities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. You know who brags too much..

Tip: Find out what the rules are for taking leave in 2024.

Arrange a regular check of your apartment or house

The holidays are not only a highlight for travel agents, but unfortunately also for burglars. So arrange for someone to drop by your place every now and then to pick your mailbox in addition to watering the flowers.

The available solicitor wishes you a nice and worry-free holiday.

I work as a self-employed craftsman and I know my field very well. Unexpected events happen, however, and I sometimes have to deal with problems where I need quality legal advice. I don’t like calling legal offices, getting sucked into discussions with terms I don’t understand. Dostupnyadvokat.cz is different. My first time, they replied immediately (zobrazit více) and together we created a contract custom tailored to my exact needs. I continue to be very happy with both their work and their price.

Dostupný advokát updated the terms of a contract for our web portal studentino.cz, to insure that they were in strict accordance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The entire process was done online and for reasonable price.

I decided to withdraw from my operating lease prematurely and was charged a ridiculously high penalty, apparently because the car had been sold for a significantly lower price than its market value. I found it frustrating, so I turned to Dostupný advokát for help. They got to work on the case very fast and recommended (zobrazit více) several options on how to proceed. They also helped me prepare all necessary documentation. Thanks to them, I had to pay only a fraction of the original amount and saved tens of thousands of Crowns.
