Message from the SU Madrid Director
In light of the horrific events that took place in Paris last Friday, and more recent developments in other cities such as Brussels and Hannover, independent student travel to large European cities is being discouraged, but not forbidden. If you decide to go, you must take the following required steps prior to departing:
1. Complete the Independent Travel form.
2. Have the center emergency phone number with you, and travel with proper tools to communicate effectively (email access, cell phone and charger, etc.).
3. Register your trip itinerary with the International SOS MyTrips travel tracker. To do so, you should enter the SU membership number at the top of the page for member login. The member number is 11BCPA000177. After logging in, the MyTrips Personal Travel Locator can be found on the right-hand side of the screen. Follow the steps under the MyTrips portal to register
4. Inform your host families of your travel plans.
Finally, be prudent! Avoid situations or behavior that could possibly put you at needless risk!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
