The guide contains a wealth of information to help travellers understand exactly what they need to do before they go away and during the trip: from getting the right visa, travel insurance, keeping money safe to local laws and customs. It also explains exactly what the FCO can and cannot do if tourists get into trouble abroad. In addition, you will find out where most issues occur when people travel, how to manage money on a trip, what jabs you should have in order to visit certain countries.
