Free computer classes on offer to travellers heading to Europe
Free computer classes aimed at helping travellers get more out of their trips abroad are being offered by Europe Direct Aberdeen.
The classes, which are suitable for those who have basic internet and computing skills, will look at:
the best sources of up-to-date tourist information online on European countries;
how to access information on passenger and consumer rights abroad and who to turn to if these are breached;
where to find information about how to access healthcare while abroad and in particular how to apply for a free European Health Insurance card.
Ruth Gould, Europe Direct Aberdeen coordinator, said: "We hope that the 'Travelling in the EU' computer class will equip participants with all the information they will need to make their European holiday plans a success.
"We want to help travellers discover those hidden gems in faraway lands safely, while learning more about their rights abroad if things don't go to plan."
Classes will be held at:
- Kaimhill Community Library, Pitmedden Terrace,Friday 25 October, 2pm-3pm;
- Bucksburn Community Library, Kepplehills Road, Monday 28 October, 10am-11am.
