    Travel Tips  

Before you go

  • Get travel insurance and check cover is appropriate
  • Get an E111 form from your local post office to help access health care in EU member countries
  • Check what vaccinations you need at least 6 weeks before you go
  • Make sure whoever you book holiday through is with ABTA or ATOL
  • Make copies of your passport, insurance policy, 24-hour emergency number and ticket details

Guide to buying travel insurance

  • Arrange travel insurance as soon as you book your trip to cover cancellation and curtailment
  • It is important to be covered for medical expenses, personal belongings and cancellation
  • Check the cancellation cover is enough to cover the cost of your trip
  • Always declare pre-existing medical conditions and hazardous sports/activities to be undertaken

While on holiday

  • Obtain a police statement within 24 hours of a loss: you will need one to claim against insurance
  • Leave valuables, spare cash and passport in the hotel safe, not your room
  • Keep all money exchange receipts to prove you obtained your currency legally
  • Be aware many countries have on-the-spot fines for traffic offences
