As you might already know, we're partners in the Foregin & Commonwealth Office's Know Before You Go campaign.

What this means is that we help them promote safe travel abroad, on this site, our Facebook and Twitter pages, and by sharing the stuff that they email us.

They've just launched a free guide called Plan.Pack.Explore - a useful travel guide with 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.

Plan.Pack.Explore. is available for free 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
