What the experts are saying about The Travel Survival Guide

“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.”

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

“In The Travel Survival Guide Lloyd Figgins packs into 188 pages the low-down on how to get the most out of travel by avoiding mobs, microbes, malaria, and other miscellaneous mishaps. He weaves practical advice in with fascinating personal experiences, making this book very useful while at the same time very entertaining.”

Ben Wedeman – CNN War Correspondent

“If you ever found yourself in a sticky situation whilst travelling overseas, Lloyd Figgins is the person you would want with you. The next best thing would be to have a copy of The Travel Survival Guide in your pack. As humorous as it is useful..”
