We believe that, while reading, you were charmed by each corner of Slovenia, so the decision which farm to select cannot be an easy one. In order to make your final steps to your holiday easier and to make sure that your time here is as carefree as possible, we have prepared some useful information for you.
WHEN ARE SLOVENIAN TOURIST FARMS OPEN?
You can plan your visit to a tourist farm in all seasons, as most of them are open all year round. However, each season requires different tasks on the farm, so it’s impor- tant that you inform the farm of your visit beforehand.
WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO BOOK MY ACCOMMO- DATION FOR A DAY VISIT TO A TOURIST FARM?
You can contact the tourist farm of your choice by telephone or e-mail, and the information is found in this catalogue or on the website of the Association of Tourist Farms of Slovenia (www.turisticnekmetije. si). There, you can also submit your enquiry via a web form. All information on booking your holiday, the offerings, and advice are also provided by the office of the Associati- on of Tourist Farms of Slovenia. E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the office at +386 (0)3 491 64 80
WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT METHODS AT TOURIST FARMS?
At most Slovenian tourist farms you will have to pay by cash, in euros. This is the official cur- rency in Slovenia. Only a few farms also provide the option of paying with a card (POS system). The highest demand for holidays at farms is du- ring the summer season, when a 30% advance payment must be paid for your accommodation at the farm. Otherwise, all services are paid for upon departure from the farm. The tourist fee is not included in the price of services stated in the catalogue. The prices of services, calculated in EUR, do not include the tourist fee. During New Year's and Christmas holidays, prices may increase, and surcharges will also be required if you spend fewer than three nights at a farm. At most farms, discounts are available for children, and in some places lower prices also apply for retired visitors. Tourist farms reserve the right to change prices. At most farms, high season lasts from 1 July to 31 August, during public and school holidays.
WILL WI-FI BE AVAILABLE AT TOURIST FARMS?
As you find yourself in the midst of unspoilt nature, you will not feel cut off from the world, unless this is what you desire. Farms have Wi-Fi, which can be accessed free of charge at all tourist farms. Slovenia also has good broadband LTE/4G and 3G mobile network coverage, with the exception of only a few remote corners of the country.
WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY OF TRAVELLING TO SLOVENIA AND AROUND SLOVENIA?
Slovenia, which is within the Schengen area,
is easily accessible from neighbouring countries, as it has good road, railway, and air connections. Most aeroplanes land at the Jože Pučnik Ljubljana Airport, where you can fly into Slovenia on a daily basis from various cities around Europe. There are daily bus and train connections from numerous European cities. The fastest mode of transportation in the country is by car, on the motorways, the use of which requires a vignette toll sticker. This can be purchased at petrol stations in Slovenia or in neighbouring countries, prior to crossing the border. If you do not have your own vehicle, you can rely on good public transportation.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FALL ILL OR INJURE YOURSELF IN SLOVENIA?
There are hospitals and healthcare centres in most of the major Slovenian cities and towns, and small towns have individual medical offices, which are quickly accessible due to Slovenia’s small size and good road connections from farms. In Slovenia, EU citizens can use the European health in surance card. No compulsory vaccinations are required prior to your visit to Slovenia. Pay special attention to ticks when walking through forests and spending time in nature and near water. We recommend the use of suitable repellents or undergoing preventive vaccination.
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT EMERGENCY CONTACTS?
Slovenia is considered a safe country. However, it is wise to be careful. If you happen to be robbed or if you encounter similar problems, call the police on 113. Also remember the telephone number 112, which you can call if you require urgent medical or veterinary assistance. It can also be called if you require the assistance of the fire brigade or other rescue units.
