Essential advice before heading abroad

Heading abroad is an activity littered with a handful of pitfalls alongside the monumental highs, but avoiding (or at the least managing them) is easy enough with a bit of planning. From basic steps like turning international roaming off your mobile phone up to making sure your visas allow you into the country and your passport is still in date, there’s plenty of ways to end up red faced abroad other than overexposure to the sun

  • Making sure you get travel insurance
  • Get a European Health Insurance Card - this means you’ll be accepted to any state hospital within the EU, something which is much more important than a luxury.
  • Check your passport has a minimum of six months validity on the return date - no one wants to have to get consulate assistance to return home after a wild few days partying.
