The Travel Survival Guide is the 'must have' book for every traveller
It provides up-to-date, no-nonsense, practical advice on how to prepare for a trip, recognise warning signs, avoid potential hazards and cope with emergencies should they occur. It is the definitive travel safety and security handbook and recounts many of Lloyd's own adventures.
“There are few people who have the expertise and experience Lloyd has gained through travelling and working in some of the world’s more volatile regions, and it is these experiences which qualify him to write this excellent book.”
