Before you book a holiday the first step is to check the FCDO travel advise Foreign travel advice - GOV.UK for your chosen destination.
These are just some of guidelines that you need to be aware of and important advice that could change at no notice.
Only 1/3 travellers checked travel advice before they travelled, this is scary. We hope Post-Covid travellers are now much more aware and know that they MUST check travel advice before they book and leading up to their planned travel arrangements.
The FCDO website covers a wide range of valuable, information. It also includes where to get help when away and where to find details of the British embassy, high commission or consulate for the country you are travelling.
‘The FCDO also uses the following assessment of risk when advising British people against travel:
These levels are not only countrywide and may apply only to specific regions or areas.’
Tip! Sign up for alerts for your destination
Check FCDO for your chosen destination and keep checking.
Book through an ABTA travel agent to provide you with that extra layer of support and guidance
Check is your passport still valid, or do you need to renew? EU Rules have changed.
Take adequate holiday insurance out at the time of booking. Ask your ABTA travel agent for details.
Keep important documents, E Tickets, holiday confirmation, insurance and a picture of your passport on your phone.
If travelling solo, share your itinerary with family/ friend in the U.K.
Holidays are to relax and unwind but remember, don’t drop your guard.
