Expatriates and other British travellers are still getting into preventable problems abroad because they are likely to be holding no travel or expat health insurance, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has revealed.
Some 27,272 passports were lost by British tourists and expatriates last year, while other travellers were subjected to drink and drug-related arrests, high numbers of road traffic accidents and very costly medical treatment and repatriation bills as a result of not holding adequate insurance.
The FCO’s British Behaviour Abroad report found that Spain tops the list for consular assistance cases, with 5,283 requests for help there between April 2009 and March 2010, followed by Thailand with 957, Pakistan (273) and Cyprus, with 736.
FCO minister Jeremy Browne commented: ‘Helping out Britons in trouble abroad is part of our job, but we can’t get you out of jail or pay your hospital bills.
‘Prevention is better than cure,’ he added.
