Wherever you’re travelling, the chances are they do things differently there. That’s why it’s essential to research the dos and don’ts of your destination, along with taking out proper travel insurance and getting any necessary health jabs. Break the law when you’re abroad, and you could end up facing whopping fines or even arrest... things that no travel insurance policy is designed to cover you for.
Every year Brits are caught out by breaking local laws and customs while abroad, and as a result find themselves faced with hefty fines or, in some cases, arrested or detained abroad. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has released a press release urging travellers to research their destination before they travel and find out what the local laws and customs are.
The Globelink Travel Insurance team has launched a new interactive website designed to be both a traveller’s resource and give you even faster access to assistance when you need it, via laptop or smartphone.
FCO report shows Government helping thousands of Brits in trouble abroad every year
Official figures released today as part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s (FCO’s) annual British Behaviour Abroad Report 2013 showed that Consular staff gave assistance to more than 19,000 Brits in need in 2012/13. Overall total assistance figures showed a slight drop of 3% but some countries saw big increases in more serious types of case.
