Know Before You Go
Heading abroad for your big hen weekend? Stay safe and take a look at the FCO website before you leave!
Britons make over 60 million overseas trips each year and if things go wrong, the British Embassy is there to help. The help available is limited however, so it’s important for people to take as many precautions as possible before they travel and know what the Consular can and can’t do. Information in the When Things Go Wrong article can be communicated to your customers to help them understand how the FCO can help if they find themselves in trouble abroad.
Information is split into specific categories so you can provide detailed information on each possible situation, or you can list Five Reasons To Take The British Embassy’s Phone Number With You to communicate the main messages of what the embassy can do to help.
