Safe Travel matters

Tens of thousands of New Zealanders travel overseas every year.  It’s a diverse and exciting world out there.  But it’s not always sun, fun and photos while you’re travelling.  Sometimes things can go wrong.

Your best-laid plans can be upset by any number of problems.  Theft, accident or illness can affect you or those with you.  Even losing or damaging your passport can spoil your trip.  You might also get caught up in civil unrest, natural disasters or even acts of terrorism.

Some problems are impossible to foresee or avoid.  But by planning ahead and arming yourself with the right information, you can reduce the risks you might encounter overseas.
