Safety before a Sale

Safety before
a sale

SmileForJoel is working with the UK travel industry, ABTA and the Foreign Office to raise awareness for safety abroad.


Post covid we are now more familiar with checking FCDO (Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office) travel advice for Covid - but remember their advice covers much more about your chosen travel destination.

  • Travel Advice
  • Safety & Security
  • Terrorism
  • Local Laws & Customs
  • Entry Requirements
  • Health
  • Money

You must always seek this advice before you decide on your holiday destination, your Abta travel agent will signpost this for you. To keep up to date with travel advice please read the FCDO Travel Advice website and sign up for your chosen destination. This provides travel advice for 226 countries and must be checked before you book any travel arrangements and should be continued to be checked before departure.

SmileForJoel are campaigning that all U.K. travel companies improve/monitor security standards in overseas hotels. We want to make it mandatory that hotels must have a robust critical incident policy in place and hotel/resort staff must be regularly trained on it.

Travel Tips: -

  1. Check FCDO for your chosen destination and keep checking by signing up for your chosen destination. Foreign Travel Advice
  2. Book through an ABTA travel agent to provide you with that extra layer of support and guidance.
  3. Check is your passport still valid, or do you need to renew? EU Rules have changed.
  4. Take adequate holiday insurance out at the time of booking. Ask your ABTA travel agent for details.
  5. Keep important documents, E Tickets, holiday confirmation, insurance and a picture of your passport on your phone.
  6. If travelling solo, share your itinerary with family/ friend in the U.K.
