Insurance

Make sure that you and your students are adequately covered for travel, medical and liability costs and that you have the necessary papers with you.

Bus transport will be provided by the DSAMUN organising team only on Sunday, 20 October 2019 with respect to the transport from DSA to the Airport (i.e., after the Closing Ceremony). If you decide to use this bus transport service, please inform the postmistress about your decision up to three weeks before the conference, in order to secure your booking.

 

Taxis

Taxis (yellow colored in Athens, while other colors are preferred elsewhere in Greece) can be a more convenient -although pricier- mean of transportation. While many taxi drivers are excellent professionals, it is believed that some of them try to gain more by opting for the longest route when their passenger (Greek or non Greek) is not familiar with their destination.
Taxi drivers in Athens are required by law to always use a taximeter and issue a receipt at the end of the journey. You can remind your driver to do so in case they don’t turn on their taximeter. There is also an official list of fares and surcharges they must follow. On the islands and elsewhere around Greece, fares are usually subject to agreement at the beginning of the journey.
