Compare car rent

If you know which places you are going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's that you can use with MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa


For up-to-date information about health risks, visit your own country's Foreign Department web site. Also consult your physician.


Travelling in some countries or regions is risky. That shouldn't always stop you from going, but a good preparation includes getting informed about risks.

Your own country's Foreign Department usually has a web site with up-to-date information about risks. Not only about (civil) war, but also about petty crime, availability of gas, quality of drinking water, medical services, etc.

To be on the safe side, though, also look up the CIA FactBook website.
