The UK Government is helping people prepare for safe and healthy travel abroad. We provide worldwide help and services when you’re abroad and need help in an emergency, for example, if you’ve lost your passport, been arrested or involved in an accident.
Requiring assistance is never an ideal end to a trip abroad. The Travel Aware website, provided by the UK Government’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, gives you advice and precautions you can take. It covers a wide range of issues including country-specific travel advice for 225 countries.
Before travelling abroad it is important to take out comprehensive travel insurance, and to make sure you buy the right travel insurance for your specific requirements and circumstances. Our guidance aims to help travellers choose the right travel insurance to meet their needs.
