Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Barbara, who built on last week’s tip about state-issued travel advisories with the following comment:

“I find the travel.state.gov site not very useful, but the UK one is fantastic. I get more information from them. It even gives advice about the sports teams going from one European country to another to play. At first I thought that was useless since I don’t follow sports; however, I realized it gives me info about areas to stay away from on any given day because of traffic and crowds. When in Europe I check it all the time. It is geared for UK citizens but gives very useful info for non-citizens as well. I was in Europe during the Paris attacks and was made aware of the situation by their emails. I was grateful since I was in countries where I did not speak much of the local language so TV news wasn’t helpful. I received nothing from US State Department even though I had registered my travel plans with them.”

Always good to use multiple sources when doing research, and the UK resource is definitely a big help. Thanks, Barbara!
