uk to turkey
 
Hi
I am planning a trip from the UK to turkey via Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria & into Turkey.
I plan to use campsites as much as possible & I would like some information on any documents needed for each country.
I read somewhere that some countries require payment to use motorways what countries require this & where do I pay the toll.

cheers Eric

If you use Austrian motorways you must buy a sticker (vignette).

In Bulgaria bikes are exempt from the general road toll.

You need to obtain a green card from your insurance and check which countries on your itinerary it is valid for. For countries not covered by your GC you buy insurance at the border.

Oops, I knew about Switzerland but I didn't know it was also like that in Austria. Is that for all roads or just motorways?

Ozhan u,

Could you please let me know what type of gas cylinders and regulators you use in Turkey?

can I use the UK Calor or Euro CampingGaz type or can you get them refilled.

Cheers mate.
