* what to do before you depart, passports and visas, travel insurance, money matters, health matters, dangers of drugs and keeping your home safe

# precautions while you're away: security and general tips on customs, laws and even driving abroad
# what to do if something goes wrong during your trip

Vaccinations and health

The Department of Health website has advice on:

* avoiding health risks, including country specific advice on vaccinations
* planning for healthy travel
* getting emergency medical treatment
* getting a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which entitles you to free or reduced-cost emergency medical treatment in some European countries

The website information is based on the Health Advice for Travellers booklet which is available at Post Offices, or by calling the Health Literature Line 0800 555 777.
Medical treatment in many countries is very expensive so consider taking out appropriate travel insurance that covers you and your family.
