Foreign Office launches user friendly travel advice

Friday, September 14th, 2012

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has launched Plan.Pack.Explore, the ultimate travel guide for those planning a trip abroad. The guide contains a wealth of information to help travellers understand exactly what they need to do before they go away, from getting the right visa to keeping their money safe. It also explains exactly what the FCO can and cannot do if they get into trouble abroad. The FCO is particularly urging those planning a gap year to pick up a copy of Plan.Pack.Explore to help them avoid running into preventable problems overseas.

Plan.Pack.Explore. is available for free in print, online and as an app for iPad, iPhone (iOS 5 and above) and Android devices. The benefits of the Plan.Pack.Explore. app include:

– My Checklist – allowing users to develop personal check lists

– My Notes – allowing users to write personal notes to act as reminders for a later date

– Latest FCO travel news

– Useful contacts section for Embassies, Consulates and High Commissions abroad

– Holiday countdown function
