How do I choose the best over 80s travel cover for me?

Important documentation for travelling

Be up to date with passport and visa regulations related to your destination. You can access relevant information from the FCO website.
If you have to renew your passport, try to do this well in advance in order to avoid any delays.
Ensure that you have copies of important documents such as your passport, bank account details and driving licence, in case the originals are lost during your travels.

Vaccination advice

Do your research and get all the required vaccinations for your holiday. Be clear as to whether you need to have malaria tablets or any other treatment before your trip.
Plan ahead as some treatments have to be started well in advance of your trip. 

Medication and travelling

When travelling with medication, it is important to ensure that you have sufficient supplies to last the entire trip as well as extra supplies in the event of any travel delays.

Travel money

Before leaving the country, inform your bank and mobile phone provider that you are travelling to a foreign destination. This is helpful in avoiding your phone service or cards getting blocked.

Staying healthy when abroad

Aim to drink plenty of water and remain well hydrated. It can also be beneficial to avoid alcoholic beverages if you are taking any medication.
When flying, ask for seats with extra leg room that allow you to stretch your legs. If you are prone to deep vein thrombosis, using flight socks and exercising your legs during the flight may help to reduce the risk
