Video advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is responsible for promoting British interests overseas and supporting British citizens and businesses around the globe. 

In 2001, it launched an ongoing campaign: 'Know Before You Go’ to help Brits to stay safe and healthy overseas.  

We've included their videos here as a salient reminder of how critical a travel insurance policy can be. 

The campaign is designed to promote these key messages:

  • get adequate travel insurance
  • check the FCO’s country travel advice
  • research your destination – know the local laws and customs
  • visit your GP as soon as possible before travelling 
  • check your passport is in good condition and valid and you have all necessary visas
  • make copies of important travel documents and/or store them online using a secure data storage site
  • tell someone where you are going and leave emergency contact details with them
  • take enough money and have access to emergency funds

If you have any questions about healthcare or group medical insurance, call Willis Towers Watson Health & Benefits on 01606 353260. Alternatively request a callback or complete our contact form to find out how we can help you.
