Car hire company Sixt rent a car have announced that they have become official partners to the Foreign Commonwealth Office “Know Before You Go” campaign which offers advice on keeping safe and healthy whilst travelling abroad.
This Government campaign works with over 350 partners in the travel industry to promote a number of key messages including:
- Making sure that travellers have appropriate travel insurance and medical cover.
- Understanding local laws and customs.
- Having the correct travel documentation.
- Planning ahead for emergencies.
These are just some of the topics covered by the campaign and, having such a large number of partners involved from so many areas of the travel industry, information is available on virtually every aspect of foreign travel.
Sixt plan to support Know Before You Go in a number of different ways from contributing advice on driving a car abroad to distributing literature on other topics such as health and local laws.
This content will be available both within many of our UK rental locations when collecting a car and also for download in digitial format from the Sixt blog.
Sixt Commercial Director Per Voegerl says of the campaign:
“This is a really fantastic initiative and Sixt are proud to be part of any effort to try and ensure that more travellers remain safe and healthy whilst abroad. So many unfortunate incidents can occur on holiday which could easily be avoided with a better local knowledge of your destination and the FCO are doing a great job in trying to get this knowledge out there to the public.
