When you’re not in the driver’s seat

Allow plenty of time to arrive at the station, airport or dock – much anxiety is involved in arriving late!

Check you have all travel documents before you leave home including visas and that your passport is valid for the return journey.

Listen carefully to any safety advice you are given and be aware of any emergency instructions

Carry any medication in your hand luggage.

If you have had any surgery, ear problems or other medical condition recently, discuss it with your doctor and tell the airline or travel company before you go.
