Discover Corsica



Practical information


 
INSURANCE

In accordance with the regulations, we have a professional civil liability insurance (Assurance Responsabilit√© Civile Professionnelle). Each participant has his own individual liability. In order to protect you in the event of an accident or incident that may occur during the trip, you must have a travel insurance covering the cost of cancellation, assistance and repatriation. 

Discover Corsica / Couleur Corse offers a combined cancellation and return insurance through the insurance company EUROP ASSISTANCE. This is appropriate for all our trips. This insurance is optional. The price is 5% of the total cost of the trip and it must be purchased, if necessary, while booking the trip. 
If you already have another travel insurance, we will ask you, before departure, a valid certificate mentioning your name and describing what the insurance covers.
 

 
TRAVEL FOLDER

For each trip we offer, we have created a travel folder where you will find practical information about the trip, hiking descriptions, maps and necessary equipment. It is important that you read the itinerary very carefully to ensure that you have planned your trip well and that the program meets your expectations (level, comfort, landscapes...) and that you have all the necessary equipment. If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact us.

Personal expenses:
Except in main cities, you will have difficulties to find ATM, and credit cards are rarely accepted. Thus, you have to take enough cash with you to cover your personal expenses.



ACCOMMODATIONS


We cannot make general statements about accommodations, as the standard of service vary from one to another. However, know that:

- Hotels offer two or three beds rooms of simple comfort
- Lodges are accommodations with low comfort. You sleep in 4 to 8 people dorms, and share the toilets and bathrooms with all the hikers staying in the lodge. However, some lodges offer superior service.
- Rooms can be in a lodge, in host families...

If not specified otherwise, tours in mountain huts, lodge or sheepherds' huts require a sleeping bag. These accommodations do not provide sheets or bedcover.
