Before you go camping


Checking-in at the camping

Information on personal documents: there is a strict obligation in place to record data!

Under current legislation, since September 2021, providers of accommodation have been required to record data. In practice, this means that you must present your personal documents when you arrive at the camping. You must have an identity card and an address card, but a driving license or passport can also be considered a travel document.

Remember that the rule applies to all guests and not only at the camping, but at every single accommodation! Presentation of the documents will be required even if you have already provided the necessary personal data when booking online.

In accordance with the current legislation in force, no accommodation, including our camping, can accept a guest who is unable to present his or her personal ID with a photo.


Children under the age of 18 must also have a valid identity card

In accordance with the current domestic travel and accommodation legislation, children under the age of 18 must also have a valid ID. Important: please note that a student ID card is not sufficient.

The rule applies to children of all ages, so even small babies need to have the right documents. Before you go camping, make sure to check the validity of your travel documents in order to have a vacation without any worries!


Check-in for children under 14 years

Children under 14 do not have to present their ID. Their details can be provided by their parent or guardian.

What kind of documents may be needed for a domestic holiday, what is considered a travel document?

To check in at an accommodation, a travel document is absolutely necessary! Remember that children under the age of 18 must also have an ID card. It is essential that the document presented as a travel document must be valid.

The following are considered a travel document:

  • an ID card with a photo,
  • or your driving licence,
  • or your passport.

Even though it is not mandatory, in order to keep your journey free of worries, it is worth keeping all your important documents with you at all times. The Social Security card simplifies your situation if you need unexpected medical help during the holidays, while it is also worth checking whether you have the children’s student ID card with you, as at many places, in order to get a student’s discount, children must to present a valid student ID card.


What is VIZA system?

Information about the Guest Information Closed Database (VIZA)

VIZA is an acronym meaning Guest Information Closed Database. According to the regulations, all accommodation providers are obliged to record the guests’ documents by a digital document reader. This is similar to the National Tourist Information Centre (NTAK) database. This is why it is very important to check before you travel that all guests going to the camping have valid documents and can present them on site. Unfortunately, in the absence of this, it is not possible to use any accommodation and it is not enough to provide the details of the document.
