Travel Website of the Week: Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)

STEPThere’s a lot of news about terrorism threats these days, and a bunch of readers have been emailing me saying they are nervous to travel. I wouldn’t be unless I was going to the Middle East, North Africa or the Arabian Peninsula—and enrolling with STEP is a good idea anywhere.

The U.S. Government created the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to keep you updated on any relevant incidents or instructions in case something does go down in the part of the world where you’re traveling. It’s a free service for U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the State Department can better assist you in an emergency. STEP also allows Americans residing abroad to get routine information from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
