Know Before You GoKnow Before you Go


Travel Insurance Direct supports the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office's Know Before You Go campaign.

Know Before You Go is an awareness campaign aimed at encouraging British travellers to prepare better before going overseas.

At the heart of the campaign is a travel advice web site which not only provides advice and information on a myriad of travel related subjects but also gives up to date country information. This country advice section provides vital information on the advisability to travel to any particular country, and rather less dramatically can give a useful insight on how to make the most of your time their.

The Country Advice section is used by insurance companies to determine whether it is safe to travel to a particular country or area and in doing so determines if insurance will be available to anyone travelling there.
