Kick start your trip to Euro 2016

It feels like a long time since the groups were announced in the draw last December as we eagerly await the weekend’s opening games, looking in on the teams final training sessions with anticipation.


Whether you’re watching from the comfort of your own home, your local pub, or soaking up the atmosphere across the channel, you’re sure to be in for a great few days as we celebrate the start of the 2016 UEFA European Championships.

If you are following the squads to France this weekend, take a look at our traveller’s tactics to help you remember the essentials and make sure you’re on the ball for the tournament. Leave plenty of time for travel and security checks, whether you’re travelling by plane, train, car or boat. It’s going to be a busy weekend and you should allow for delays to avoid missing booked travel plans, or, for those on day returns, the match itself!


For more information on planning for the tournament visit gov.uk/euro2016 where you can download our checklist and a handy fan card of key contact details for the clubs, embassy, travel and emergency services should you need them while you’re away.
