Personal Safety
Personal Safety

Wherever you travel in the world there is a risk of being a victim of crime, as indeed there is at home. Take sensible precautions, especially when walking around at night and try to avoid carrying valuables.

Part of the enjoyment of travelling is experiencing a different culture/way of life, however this can expose you to different hygiene and safety standards than you are used to.

To visit some countries you may need certain inoculations. Please consult your GP before travel.
