Leaving your country means leaving behind support systems, emergency service capabilities and medical facilities. Wherever in the world you plan to travel, local laws and penalties, regardless of how harsh they may seem, apply to you. Every year, hundreds and thousands of tourists are arrested overseas because of these strict laws. The situation is traumatic, distressing and frightening not only for you but also for your family and friends back home.
If you find yourself sick and in need of medical care, Travel Aware® provides you access to emergency contact numbers for your destination.
If you find yourself a victim of a serious crime, Travel Aware will help you find the nearest police station.
Travel Aware communicates to you, in your language, and can direct you to the nearest emergency centre available.
