The Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s (FCO) Travel Advice Notices aim to ensure that British travellers are well prepared before departure.

Every year, residents of the United Kingdom go on more than 59 million overseas journeys.

Also in this area is information about the EHIC, UK citizens’ passport to free or reduced-cost emergency care in most other European countries.
