FAQ Europe Retreats

 

Get ready for your Retreat. Below are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions. We hope they will help you with your Retreat planning & get you all set for an amazing time!

General info about the retreat

Yes. Each Retreat will be split into two or three workshop groups, based on levels. This will ensure you get all the attention you need, can work on skills suited to where you are at, and have a pole to yourself!

We will send out a survey prior to the retreat which will ask a few questions about your pole level so we can see what level you are at. If you are attending the Retreat with some friends and want to be in the same group, please mention this in the survey.

We will send this to you in the Retreat Telegram chat about a week before your Retreat.

See attached the example schedule for your favourite retreat. Changes are possible.

Not everyone is obliged to get Travel Insurance for european countries. In addition, if you have health insurance valid in the whole world, you also do not need to get extra for european countries.

If you are still wondering “Do I need travel insurance for the final destination?” note that insurance is mandatory for you, only if one of the following statements applies to you:

  • You need a visa to enter the final destination for short stays. One of the main requirements for a short-stay visa to mostly countries in the EU is a document that proves you have travel insurance that covers the whole territory of Schengen. The document must prove your insurance has minimal coverage of €30,000.
  • You will enter the Schengen zone through a member state that wants you to present proof of travel Insurance for entry to Schengen. Several Schengen countries demand travellers to prove they have travel insurance when they show up at their port of entry. You should check if the country through which you plan to enter the Schengen zone has such a requirement.
