Know Before You Go Campaign

Launched in 2001, ‘Know Before You Go’ is an ongoing consular awareness campaign run by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). It encourages British nationals to be better prepared for their overseas trips with a view to avoiding common travelling traumas, risks and dangers.

The key campaign message is simple and applies to everyone - Know Before You Go – get travel insurance, research your destination including local laws and customs, visit your GP at least six weeks before travelling overseas and make copies of important travel documents. Through a series of mini-drives (link to Campaign History) we bring these, and other key messages, to specific categories of travellers which complements the FCO’s Travel Advice service.

Top Tips

  • Check the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) Travel Advice or call 0870 606 0290.
  • Get travel insurance and check that the cover is appropriate.
  • Check what vaccinations you need at least 6 weeks before you go and consider whether you need to take extra health precautions - Department of Health
  • Get a good guidebook and get to know your destination. Find out about local laws and customs.
    Ensure you have a valid passport that is in good condition and the necessary visas.
  • Make copies of your passport, insurance policy plus 24-hour emergency number, and ticket details. Leave these copies, your itinerary and contact details with family and friends.
  • Take enough money for your trip and some back-up funds eg travellers cheques, sterling or US dollars.

    Lord Triesman, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office with responsibility for consular policy said:

    'Safety of British Nationals overseas is in everyone's best interests. Since the campaign was launched in 2001 we have continued to promote safe and enjoyable travel for all British Nationals. Whether you're an extreme sports enthusiast or going away to enjoy some rest and relaxation it is recommended that you Know Before You Go.'
