Before you depart:

 

• Take out appropriate travel insurance before travelling and make sure it covers you for all the activities you want to do.

 

• If you are travelling within Europe, ensure you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) that hasn’t expired and understand what it covers - you still need full travel insurance though! For your free EHIC card visit www.nhs.uk/ehic

 

• Learn about the laws, customs and entry requirements of the country you’re visiting and understand how they differ from home, check www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice

 

• Check your passport is valid, fill out the emergency details, look after it while travelling and keep it in a safe place. Make sure you have all necessary visas.

 

• Make copies of important travel documents, take a picture or make copies and store them securely using a secure data storage site.

 

• Research vaccinations or any other medical requirements for your destination, and if necessary visit a travel health clinic before you travel. For medical advice visit travelhealthpro.org.uk

 

• Tell your friends or family about your travel plans and where you’re going and leave emergency contact details.

 

• Take enough money with you and have access to emergency funds.

 

• Ensure you take the contact details of the local British Consulate in case of emergencies - www.gov.uk/government/world/embassies

 

• Understand what consular staff can and can’t do to help British nationals travelling overseas, check www.gov.uk/government/publications/support-for-british-nationals-abroad-a-guide

 

• Act responsibly, and be responsible for yourself when abroad.
