What actually happened

Well having read the excellent advice given here I decided that we should just drive through bosnia. We did and it was absolutely no problem.

Did you just drive through or stay for a period of time? We're hoping to tour round The Balkans in a year or two.

This Dutch company will insure a UK vehicle for those countries:

Serbia - overnight stops in winter


I had the following useful exchange of emails w/ the Camping Association of Serbia.

Their email address is supposed to be:

[email protected],

but our email was sent back from there . . .

However, it must have got through in the end and the chap who replied was:

[email protected]

Dear Helen and David,
there are no campsites that are opened in the winter.
But, you can use many of village households as alternative.
Please, let me know more about your arrival when you will be sure and I will try to help you by sending some more information.

Best regards

Vladimir Djumic - Camping Association of Serbia

It has already been mentioned, but we got fully comp for Bosnia through our normal insurers, Saga, a few years ago.

In my opinion it is a waste of this beautiful country to rush through Bosnia to get to Dubrovnik - BiH has so much to offer. (But not, unfortunately, Mostar, which we found either bombed out or a tourist nightmare, all within a few hundred yards of each other.

Before driving in Bosnia, DO read our diary about the police, who are regularly stopping drivers looking for backhamders.

Friends of mine were stopped by the police in 2010 and asked for their insurance. Initially they were told to return to Dubrovnik and get insurance before they could pass through Bosnia. They managed to persuade the officers to let them off with a warning.

Comfort, my insurers, will not cover you for Bosnia. It seems most people take a chance and have no problems - a bit risky.

Is it possible to cross this narrow strip of Bosnia using public transport?

How have others fared?

Don't want to miss out on a visit to Dubrovnik but it is a problem.
