Dangers include; tropical diseases; dangerous animals; poor sanitation standards as well as poor food and drinking water standards. You can protect yourself against many of these risks by ensuring that you get correct travel inoculations before leaving home (worringly a large number of people don’t do this!), the UK NHS website; fitfortravel, provides a useful list of travel inoculations for different parts of the world. It should be noted that advice on travel inoculations differs depending on which country you live so it is always advisable to contact your local doctor.

Travel dangers can also come from other people through robberies and assaults or even dangerous driving. Always think about the precautions you can take before you start a journey. For example, travel insurance is a useful way of protecting yourself against some of the financial costs that you could incur if you become ill or have an accident while away from home.
