I saw many warnings about split of Bitcoin Gold, that they would not provide replay protection. Can someone explain that and would it be enough protection to firstly transfer BTC to another wallet before claiming BTG?

I actually thought that they did implement a replay protection and that only Segwit2x will not implement it. According to this wikipedia page at least https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin_Gold

They planned to implement a replay protection. But they haven't succeed and the team decided to release a bounty of 250 BTG to who provides a working replay protection implementation[1] - and which wasn't claimed so far.

As long you first transfer your bitcoin to a new wallet (or at least to a new address which private key is not in your old wallet) your bitcoins are safe.
Your BTC transaction (in this example) could only be replayed to the forked chain. So mostly they are at risk. But as long as you hold your private keys,
even the replayed transaction wouldn't mean a loss.
So after sending your BTC to a new wallet you can import your old private keys into a BTG wallet to send those funds to a new BTG wallet.
At this point you have 2 new wallets (1 BTC, 1 BTG) containing all your coins and 1 old wallet which u imported into BTG wallet (i would not look at it as a secured wallet anymore).

Think about what that means for exchanges: they started trading on a coin without working wallet and without a valid blockchain. It literally means the exchanges forked Bitcoin based on a hype, and if the hype doesn't pan out, it simply disappears.
At least Bittrex is smart enough to wait until the first block is mined.
