Turakainen takes a quick look at the matkustusturvallisuus.fi website where travellers can register their trip itineraries and contact details.
Turakainen is an independent traveller who finds that things just happen.
In their brand new animation, Madventures' Riku and Tunna are keen to help Turakainen and remind him about the four Ts of safe and smart travelling: travel insurance, travel advice, travel registration, and travel documents.
Do you want to get to safety before a tsunami occurs? Do you want to avoid getting a zillion euro hospital bill? Do you want to know what to watch out for at your destination? Do you want to get your passport matters in order with minimum effort?
Safe travel is our common concern. If you take precautions you are more likely to get respect and less likely to be deceived. Make sure that you have taken care of the four Ts and use your common sense when travelling — this way your trip will always be more fun, more comfortable, more entertaining, more enjoyable, more extraordinary ...
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Police and Madventures have adoped Turakainen as their own hero traveller.
