As well as looking at dreamy photos of cotton-white beaches and scouring the web for the best hotels and destination must-dos, checking Travel Aware should play a big part in your holiday research. It’s got all the information you need to make an informed decision about where you’d like to go, before you hit the book button. We’re talking everything from understanding entry requirements, to getting an idea of the local customs of the destinations on your ‘maybe’ list. Plus, you can make the most of handy tools, like the quick A-Z country advice search page, and the before-you-go checklist.
We know things can change after you book, which is why it’s important to make sure you’re up to speed with the latest travel advice. Travel Aware makes it really easy, too. Just follow their social channels - @FCOtravel on twitter, FCO Travel on Facebook, and TravelAware on Instagram. Here, they regularly post updates on situations that have the potential to affect travellers. Plus, you can sign up to their email alerts to get these updates directly into your inbox.

That way, your holiday’s covered from the outset, so if your circumstances change before you travel, your insurance has got your back. Travel Aware has all the details on travel insurance, why it’s so important, and what you should look for in a policy. Have a read of their take on it.
