We also suggest you:

  • research your destination:
    • are there any on the ground support services available to Schoolies?
    • is there any relevant travel advice you need to be aware of?
    • save any local emergency contact numbers you may need.
  • download the Emergency+ app – it will help identify your location and seek assistance in the event of an emergency
