PRICE

4990 CZK or 4790 CZK with Discovery Pass

 

The price includes: Round-trip train ticket from Prague to Štrbské Pleso, local transport, 3 nights accommodation with half-board (breakfast and dinner included), guiding and organization, Travel Agency Insurance and a photo report.

 

What is not included

The breakfast on the first day and lunches during the whole trip.

 

Travel health insurance. I strongly advise you to arrange one because your regular health insurance (e.g. EHIC) wouldn’t cover, for example, an emergency helicopter transport. It is extremely unlikely you will need that but better to be safe than sorry! Insure yourself for about 100 Kč and have peace of mind!

 

Please print, fill in and sign a tour contract (click to download) Why is that? Learn here

 

Use your employee benefits card or vouchers to pay for this trip! We accept Sodexo Flexi Pass Card and vouchers, Edenred Card and vouchers and Benefity.cz card! Part payments by benefit cards and the rest by another way is also possible.
