Our Standard Policy on Travel Security

Our overall policy towards security advice from the FCO is shown below:

  • We will always follow FCO advice, and we will not operate tours to areas where the advice is against all non-essential travel. Where we cancel tours for this reason, passengers will be offered a transfer to an alternative tour or a full refund.
  • Decisions about when to cancel upcoming tours are made on a rolling basis, as the advice can change at any time. Where the advice for a country is temporarily against all non-essential travel, we will not normally cancel tours more than 6 weeks before the date of travel.
  • The safety of our clients is always our highest concern and we will continue to monitor the situation. Updates will be added to this web page as and when they become available.
