New UK Customs Podcast Gives Advice For Travellers

HM Revenue & Customs (UK)

Check Out The New Travellers' Podcast Before You Check-In

A new podcast offering advice for travellers on what can, and can't be, brought back into the UK is now available.

In the latest audio offering from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), customs expert Mark Fuchter explains what items carry restrictions when bringing them into the UK, or are banned altogether. It covers everything from food, plants and wildlife souvenirs to prescription drugs, counterfeit goods and offensive weapons.

And the travellers' podcast won't add to your holiday budget either - it's completely free. You can hear it, or download it so you can listen later on your computer or iPod, by visiting the HMRC website at

Launching the podcast, Mark Fuchter said:

"If you're planning a trip abroad, for business or pleasure, take a few minutes to find out what you can, and can't, bring back with you - it could save you a lot of time, and money, in the long run."
