Register overseas trips with Smart Traveler

Here's a little-known benefit offered by the State Department -- the free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

U.S. citizens planning an overseas trip can register their itinerary and contact information online (travel.state.gov), enabling quicker communication and assistance in the event of an emergency. Those registered can choose to receive e-mail updates from the U.S. embassy or consulate at their destination as well as destination-specific travel alerts and warnings that are issued by the department.
