Goes without saying, but check your passport expiry date, arrange an EHIC card, personal medical insurance, car insurance overseas and car breakdown insurance. The medical insurance MUST cover you for kayaking on grade 3/4 waters, if you’re going to be paddling. Dogtag insurance & Insureandgo both offer good deals.
Club boats are NOT insured for Europe. Please check with BCU for advice/contacts for insuring your boats for the duration. If you are borrowing a boat/equipment, you are also responsible for insuring it.
