  • Take STEPS to be a Smart Traveler

    Filed Under: Blogging

Simple steps before you travel make you better prepared, more comfortable and better protected. The U.S. State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is one extra item on your travel planning list that could save you a lot of trouble on your vacation.

The STEP program is free and when you sign up you receive a compilation of the most current and important information on the country you are traveling to. Added to a comprehensive international travel insurance plan, STEP ensures you are covered for any eventuality.

STEP also provides updates, travel warnings and travel alerts to your inbox that you might otherwise miss. Possible security threats and natural disasters that may affect your travel plans are included so you can make informed decisions from abroad.

By signing up, the government will be able to assist you more easily in the event of an emergency by evacuating or helping with practical matters. Of course, the STEP program is no substitute for international travel insurance – both are necessary for travel, particularly to off-the-beaten-track destinations.
