1. Check to see if your passport will still be valid
If you have a British passport, you will need to have at least six months left on your passport and your passport must have been issued within the last 10 years. You can use the Governments passport checker to see if you need to renew your passport.
2. Take out travel insurance with adequate healthcare cover
We always advise travellers to take out comprehensive travel insurance with sufficient healthcare cover, including cover for existing medical conditions and any activities you plan to do. We recommend excellent comprehensive insurance through Gold Cover Insurance - 01892 553 666.
If you have a European Health Insurance Card it will be valid up to its expiry date. If you apply for a card now, you'll get a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) instead of an EHIC. More details here.
3. Check your mobile phone companys policy on data roaming
Rules around mobile data roaming are changing meaning you may face charges when using your phone abroad, including for making calls, sending messages or using the internet. Check with your mobile phone provider about their data roaming policy.
