Whilst most visits abroad are trouble free, there are some alarming statistics about travelling abroad.
Whilst there is an emergency telephone number in place for all countries in the EU, a recent Foreign Office poll found that just 3% of people in the UK know that 112 is the EU emergency phone number.
However, even if you are aware of the service, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be put through to an English-speaking operator.
