The Smartraveller team at last listened to their users! They have upgraded their digital services that will now allow travellers to use a single account to register their trips and subscribe to travel advice.
With the new changes, the website provided by Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade will now let travellers register their trips with the service so that DFAT can contact them or their family in case of emergency. Travellers can also choose the service of travel advice subscription to stay up-to-date about a destination before and during their trip. The subscription service covers updates about more than 170 destinations. You can choose to subscribe to both the services or pick up just one as per your discretion.

In a nutshell, the new services will provide the facilities of subscribing to Smartraveller official bulletins, travel advice for different countries, updating trip registration information according to the change in travel plans, and saving emergency contacts of travellers.
People have to create an account with Smartraveller to enjoy those facilities. The website now has two tabs – “register your travel plans” and “subscribe to updates” – and the new users have to choose one while setting up their account. Users who already have an account will need to set their password again to activate those new facilities in their accounts.

Smartraveller also released its new website and apps before making those upgrades. The Smartraveller team is currently promoting personal responsibility of travellers through a campaign. It also suggests industry partners to encourage the travellers to take its newly launched services.
