Travel tips (When you are away)

-Think about what you are doing at all times and trust your instincts - don’t take risks that you wouldn’t at home!
-Don’t openly display valuables such as mobile phones or digital cameras and consider using a padlock on suitcases or backpacks
-Find out about local customs and dress, behave accordingly and obey local laws -there may be serious penalties for breaking a law that might seem trivial at home
-Be careful when taking photographs, videos or using binoculars. Such activities may be misunderstood, especially near military installations
-Consider taking your mobile with you or renting one whilst you’re away. Store useful numbers such as the local police and the nearest embassy or consulate
-Check with your service provider to make sure your phone works abroad
check whether it’s safe to drink local tap water- if not, stick to bottled water and avoid salads, non-peeling fruit and ice in drinks
-Use your judgement when buying and eating food you’ve not prepared yourself
respect the environment – don’t buy wildlife souvenirs, conserve resources like water and don’t drop litter
-Check import regulations for food and plants before you attempt to bring them back to the UK
