We're heading to the Alps at the end of June (yay!), and I've been doing research on driving tips, but am still a bit confused. I understand that we need to purchase extra insurance with a really low deductible - A collateral damage waiver, is that right? And that there's a pass we need to get when we get into Austria.
Also, any recommendations for using the GPS on our american phone? I have the maps on a micro-SD for our garmin for Italy, but not for Austria or Germany. I've heard I can download maps beforehand onto my phone (I haven't done that before) so we don't use data, but I plan to get an international data plan for the time we'll be there, just in case.
Any other tips? Also, it looks like the Dolomites have rain every day this week in the afternoon. Is that typical?
