Safe Transportation

TRANSPORTATION-RELATED INCIDENTS ARE THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF DEATH FOR AMERICANS ABROAD.
 

On-site staff and alumni are the most valuable resources for transportation guidance in your host country. To ensure that your plans for transportation (Uber, public transportation, etc.) are realistic at your destination, be sure to do your research well in advance of travel.

If you choose to participate in inherently risky practices such as jet skiing, boating, skiing, scuba diving, or hang gliding, be aware that you do so at your own risk and University insurance does not cover issues related to these activities. Consider buying supplemental insurance, as treatment for accidents can cost millions of dollars.

Review and abide by the country-specific information for each area of travel (not just your primary destination).
