Travelling in Europe Safely

This short guide will help you to stay safe and legal while travelling in Europe. Let's just say, the key to safe travel is in the preparations.

Before booking

Before you book your trip, you should inform yourself about the following:

  • Current conditions and risks in the country:
    • Choose another destination if the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against a visit to your planned country or region.
    • Read the current report on the respective country on the Government travel advice page.
  • Travel insurance and costs
    • Inform yourself about necessary travel insurance and costs before you book your holiday. If you have a pre-existing health condition, you might not get travel insurance for the country you'd like to visit.
  • Laws and cultural differences
    • Inform yourself about cultural differences, customs and traditions. If you don't want to adjust to other customs, you might enjoy yourself more in another destination.
    • Also read about differences in law. In Greece, for example, you are not allowed to wear heels on certain archeological sites and in Spain, Germany and France, you are not allowed to wear flip-flops while driving.
