Some great advice from the Foreign Office for gap year students and other first time travellers. The FCO have issued a new guide called Plan. Pack. Explore. (below) with a load of helpful guidance on topics like insurance, money and health. Also available as an app on an iPhone or Android.
Good planning may sound dull but is often the key to having a carefree and fun time overseas, which is why Quest Overseas provides all volunteers with a fully comprehensive pre-departure pack, which contains information on the countries to be visited, project background, cultural notes, and plenty of other resources.
We also provide Pre-Departure Training in the UK for all team members. It covers Responsible Travel, Cultural Awareness, Health & Hygiene, Risk Assessment, Teamwork and Onward Travel. The training also gives you the opportunity to meet the rest of your team and leaders before going overseas.
Oh yes, and did we mention a bit of dancing…?
