Stay Safe Abroad

The chances of being caught up in a terrorist incident are still low but sadly we have seen atrocities take place in the UK and abroad, so it is important everyone stays alert and knows what to do if the worst was to happen.

We offer this advice in the same way airlines show a safety video before take-off. They do not expect anything bad to happen but it is a sensible safety precaution to show people what to do.

While there is no specific intelligence that British holidaymakers will be targeted, this film highlights the steps you can take to minimise the impact of an attack – including knowing the local emergency services number.

If you here gunshots you should:

RUN – to a place of safety. This is better than trying to surrender or negotiate.

HIDE – it is better to hide than confront. Barricade yourself in, turn your phone to silent and use only when it is safe to do so.

TELL – Make sure you know the local emergency numbers in the country you are travelling to. For all EU countries call 112.

In an emergency, always dial 999
