Road safety

Traffic congestion in towns may be an issue. nIf your car has been damaged and you believe your personal security is in danger, do not get out. Call the cops or go as quickly as possible to a police station.

Public transportation

There are a few key things to remember if you plan on using public transportation during your stay in Luxembourg. For starters, be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time and validate them via the machines onboard the bus or at the boarding platform. If you forget to do this, you may get fined on-the-spot, which must be paid for immediately.


In Luxembourg, it is now cheaper to take a licensed taxi instead of public transportation. Taxi fares are no longer regulated, so each taxi driver can set their own rates. Although, they are required by law to make the prices visible for customers. If you’re uncertain about how much the ride will cost, be sure to ask the driver for a detailed list of tariffs before getting in the car.

Schengen area

Citizens of Canada don’t need a visa for travelling inside the Schengen area, but are only allowed to stay for 90 days in every 180-day period. If you plan on remaining in the Schengen region for an extended time frame, then you will require a separate visa. Be sure to get the right visa by contacting the high commission or embassy of your destination country (or countries) before traveling.
