From getting the right visa to keeping managing your money, the guide includes plenty of valuable information to help travellers. It contains vital information on what the FCO can or cannot do in cases of trouble abroad.

The FCO strongly encourages those planning a gap year to get a copy of the guide to avoid running into preventable problems overseas. Hey, we all know that sometimes those problems make the best traveller stories but a little planning might just save your bacon so take a look…
