Make provisions in case of emergencies abroad

Before travelling abroad, inform your friends or relatives about your travel route and provide them with contact details abroad. If your travel destination is affected by a crisis (natural disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks, violent political insurgencies etc.), contact your relatives and friends or the nearest Austrian representation abroad (embassy, honorary consulate or consulate-general). Even though you may not be affected by the crisis, establishing contact with your friends and relatives will save them worrying about you.
