The US State Department issued a travel alert Tuesday for Americans planning to visit Europe this summer. The alert, set to expire on August 31, was issued ahead of several large sporting events and conferences being held throughout Europe over the summer months when many Americans will be visiting the continent.

In the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels, the US State Department has advised traveling Americans that large-scale sporting events and public gatherings — like the European Soccer Championship, among others — are likely targets for terrorist activity.

If you were able to snag one of these amazing business-class deals to Europe and are in the process of planning your trip, you might want to review these steps you can take to stay safe this summer and during your travels all year long.
