Freedom Insurance Travel Tips

In association with the ‘Travel Aware’ Campaign, we are working with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to do all that we can to help British nationals stay safe overseas.

In association with the ‘Travel Aware’ Campaign, we are working with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to do all that we can to help British travellers stay safe overseas. Before you go overseas, check out the FCO website at www.gov.uk/travelaware. It is packed with essential travel advice and tips, and up-to-date country information.

PRE-DEPARTURE ADVICE:

  • 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, look after it while travelling and keep it in a safe place. Make and you have all necessary visas.
  • Make copies of important travel documents, take a picture of them and/or store them online using a secure data storage site.
  • Research vaccinations or any other medical requirements, and if necessary visit a travel health clinic or your GP at least six weeks before you travel, visit travelhealthpro.org.uk.
  • Tell someone where you’re going and leave emergency contact details.
  • Take enough money with you and have access to emergency funds.
  • Understand what consular staff can and can’t do to help British nationals travelling overseas.
