Money Tips And More Advice When Travelling Andorra

When you travel to another country keep always in mind that your personal possessions could be taken away from you and also your data from your cards used in ID fraud. Be alert to the possible use of “date trap” or “date rape”, if you are a young female, this is often referred to as “acquaintance rape”, (is an assault or attempted assault usually committed by a new acquaintance involving sexual intercourse without mutual consent) and also other drugs including “ghb” (gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid a neuroprotective and depressant drug that is illegal in a lot of countries) and liquid ecstasy can also be used. Buy your own drinks and keep sight of them at all times to make sure they are not spiked. Female travellers should be particularly watchful. Alcohol and drugs can make you less vigilant, less in control and less aware of your environment – especially at altitude. If you drink, know your limit – remember that drinks served in bars are often stronger than those in the UK. Avoid been separated from your friends, and don’t go out with people you don’t know. Remember that rape and sexual assault abroad could occur.

Money Tips And More Advice When Travelling Andorra

Road travel

Keep in mind that you will be driving on the right-hand side of the road in Andorra that is (opposite to the UK). It is required for motorists travelling to or driving in Andorra to carry in the vehicle two red warning triangles which are needed to be placed, in the event of an accident or breakdown, in the front and behind the vehicle. These triangles should be visible to other drivers at a distance of at least 30 meters or 100 feet. In addition, drivers must have a spare pair of glasses (if needed for driving), a good condition spare wheel, and a full set of spare light bulbs and also the tools to change this items. If you need to leave your vehicle due to an accident or breakdown, or whilst awaiting the arrival of the emergency services, you must wear a reflective jacket. Failure to do so could result in a heavy fine. Don’t forget, always carry a certificate of insurance with you in the case you are stopped by (Policia) police. If you have hired a car and bought insurance, you should be given documentation. If you are using your own country insurance, carry your insurance certificate with you at all times. Keep in mind that this is generally only valid for a stay shorter than three months. If you are staying longer, contact your insurer. Andorra has more stricter drink driving laws then many other countries and the authorities impose strict penalties, such as heavy fines, loss of license or imprisonment for driving under the influence of alcohol. The advice here is simply not to drink and drive. Seat belts are required only for front seat passengers. No children under the age of ten will be allowed in the front seat and small children must use an approved child safety seat. Ask your hire car agency to provide a seat for you just let them know you need one when you reserve the car. Also as in many other countries talking on mobile phones when driving isn’t allowed but you are allowed to use a completely hands-free unit.

Local laws

Andorra has strict rules on public drunkenness and the possession or use of illegal drugs the authorities apply zero tolerance. Andorra is a very small country and is not a member of the European Union so purchases of duty free tobacco, liquor and other luxury goods are subject to taxes and duties when crossing back to European Union countries. France and Spain apply strict rules on the amount of tobacco exported from Andorra for personal use (300 cigarettes/400gms pipe tobacco/75 cigars). Amounts in excess of this can be impounded and also the transporting vehicle so beware.
