Travel information on leaving SalzburgerLand

Relaxed and carefree - just as the holiday in SalzburgerLand was, so should the journey home also be. This information can be helpful for this.

What should I consider when checking out of my accommodation?

  • If possible, use an online checkout to reduce congestion at the reception. Please check with your accommodation company directly if this option exists
  • If possible, make use of the contactless handover of keys and keycards at holiday apartments and houses
  • If possible, pay contactless with ATM/debit or credit card

Are there international travel warnings for SalzburgerLand and what does this mean for me on my return journey?
