The world changes on a daily basis. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and National Travel Health Network and Centre have up-to-date advice on staying safe and healthy abroad. Their website gives useful advice for countries throughout the world, including safety and security, local laws and customs, entry requirements, natural disasters, political situations, health alerts (inclusive of the latest information regarding Coronavirus) and crime information, as well as what to do if something does go wrong.

For the latest travel advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office including security and local laws, plus passport and visa information check www.gov.uk/travelaware and follow @FCOtravel and Facebook.com/FCOtravel.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office also provides the following advice:


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 https://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-….

Act responsibly, and be responsible for yourself when abroad.

Safer Tourism Foundation

The Safer Tourism Foundation is a new and independent charity which was set up by Sharon Wood as a positive legacy for her children, Bobby and Christi Shepherd, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning whilst on holiday in Corfu in 2006.

The foundation seeks to reduce the health and safety risks affecting people travelling abroad, and Hayes & Jarvis is proud to pledge support for the charity.

For simple, practical advice on staying safe and well during your travels, or to learn more about the charity and its work, please visit the Safer Tourism Foundation website.
