Travel is a great thing to do, with the potential to enhance your life and provide magical memories for the years to come. Of course, it comes with the risk of problems and mishaps along the way, which is why travel insurance is an essential prerequisite of any travel plans that you make, to give you peace of mind as you embark on your trip.
In addition to this, it is also advisable to do some research into the locations that you are travelling to, as this will stand you in good stead before you jet off, and provide you with valuable information about the practicalities of being in another country. We have created some useful destination guides to kick off your pre-trip fact-finding, which we hope you will find useful and informative. They include information about healthcare in the country that you are travelling to, climate information and recommendations about where to go, as well as a host of other relevant facts.
It is also essential to take a look at the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) website prior to travelling, to check that there are no travel advisories in place for destinations on your itinerary, as your travel insurance could be invalidated if you travel somewhere against FCO advice.
