Your Child Safety, Health and Well-being: 

Check The FA Website for comprehensive Guidelines for Safety for children on Football Tours 

  • Safety: It's essential to educate your child about the risks of travelling abroad, avoiding dangerous situations and being aware of their surroundings.
  • Health: Make sure your child is fit and healthy enough to travel, insure them for any pre-existing medical conditions, and educate them on how to stay healthy abroad, such as drinking bottled water, avoiding street food stands, and helping them prepare physically and mentally. 
  • Well-being: Make sure your child has a working phone or a way of contacting you if they are concerned and happy with their surroundings. Be as supportive as you can be without being there. And that their coach /teacher has your telephone number as a parent and child.  

Storing your child's travel insurance documents: printing multiple copies of the travel insurance document, including the 24/7 emergency assistance contact details, is essential. We recommend having one in your hand or holding luggage, giving a copy to the team manager, and saving a copy in your smartphone wallet if possible. 

Who to contact in an emergency: You should get the 24/7 emergency assistance line, which will instruct you on the next steps and arrange medical care.
