- Fuel (availability, quality and cost)
fuel is widely available and is about €0.94 per litre - very useful AA site here for petrol prices across Europe AA Roadwatch petrol price table Lithuania does not accept the Euro however and local prices are 3.2 per litre
- Period in country
It's possible we will only be in Lithuania for one day... this needs to be firmed on the route timetable
- State of roads
There is a good network of roads within the country. Modern four-lane motorways connect Vilnius with Klaipeda, Kaunas and Panevezys. Traffic regulations: Seat belts must be worn. The speed limit is 110kph (68mph) on motorways, 90kph (56mph) on country roads and 60kph (44mph) inside towns. The Vilnius-Kaunas highway has a speed limit of 100kph (60mph). Traffic drives on the right. Bus: Generally, buses are more frequent and quicker than domestic trains and serve almost every town and village. Car hire: Avis, Europcar and Hertz can provide chauffeur-driven or self-drive cars. Documentation: Most European nationals should be in possession of EU pink format driving licences. Otherwise, a national driving licence is sufficient, if supported by photograph-bearing ID.
- Local embassy advice (phone call to the local British embassy)
The British Embassy in Lithuania can be found here - complete contact details are available from the website - in case of emergency in the country we should contact +370 698 37097 and ask for the Duty Consular Officer
- Emergency advice, including medical cover – what happens if we have to go to hospital?
The British Embassy in Vilnius can help us - we should call +370 698 37097 24 hours a day - medical cover in Lithuania is as the rest of the Europe with the EHIC card - specific details on services available with that card in Lithuania can be found hereBUT because of the ‘newness’ of Lithuania in the EU there are only specific doctors / dentists etc we can use - we should print out and take the advice on the page above with us.
- Cost of everyday items
Generally quite cheap, having difficulty finding specific prices but if the petrol is anything to go by about 1/2 the price of the UK.
- Usual cost of ‘gifts‘
No bribes required
- Border routines Inward
EU 'border-less' crossing, normal rules apply as rest of EU - passport required - customs to be declared - specific customs regulations can be found here
- Border Routines Outward
- Cost of accommodation – towns / villages – camping, B&B, hotels
Exceptionally cheap - top of the range comes in at 6Lt per person but we have to keep any eye on 'extras' like the showers etc which can cost an extra 4lt
The average costs ranges from 20ly to 40lt per person per night depending on location Youth Hostels range from 27lt to 40lt per persons
2* start at €75 up to over €185 for 3*
