Insurance

Therefore, please do make sure you have a valid travel and medical insurance for your stay in Georgia! Please note that you need to have your own insurance also for your instrument and other belongings

Currency and payments

The payments are made in the national currency - Georgian Lari (GEL). 1 Lari consists of 100 Tetri. All payments can be made either in cash or by credit cards. You can purchase local currency in banks and currency exchange points, which are plentiful around the city, as well as ATMs.

NB! The cultural trip will take place outside of the city, so the organizers strongly advice you to take  cash since paying by the cash is the most common method of payments in villages.
