US State Department Travel Alert

Some Practical Steps To Take When Traveling To Europe

The US State Department on May 1st issued a travel warning to Americans who are planning to visit Europe.  If you are planning to make the trip overseas, you should take a few minutes to read the statement.

Also, take a look at this other government service known as the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, or STEP.  The benefits are:

  • Receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans
  • Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency
  • Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency

It seems like a good practical way to be able to contact or be contacted during an emergency.
