Safety and security
England is generally quite safe but you’ll need to be more careful in London and the other large cities, especially at night. Choose a train, tube or tram carriage that has plenty of people in it and avoid deserted suburban tube stations at night. There are many night buses you can catch but try not to do this alone. A licensed cab is often the best option.
Try and leave valuables in your hotel room, as pick pockets do operate in some areas, be careful of bags especially when in busy areas.
England travel insurance
Don’t leave home without it! Accidents happen – and they can happen in the strangest places at the strangest times, like on the beach in Brighton or in an alley in London at 3 am. Travel insurance can cover you for all sorts of mishaps during your travel, and even before you leave. Did you know up to 25% of all insurance claims are due to cancellation of travel?
