ABTOT are proud partners of the FCDO Travel Aware Campaign
The purpose of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) travel advice is to provide information and advice to help British nationals make their own informed decisions about foreign travel.
Travel Aware is an established campaign and aims to increase confidence in travel, whilst asking travellers and the Travel Industry to engage with travel advice and understand the steps that need to be taken for a safe and enjoyable trip.
If the FCDO issue an “against all travel or against all but essential travel” in response to issues in destination such as a worldwide pandemic or a significant terrorist incident or extreme weather warnings, fires etc, then this presents a number of immediate issues:
- Passenger welfare
- customer travel insurance often becomes void
- PTR obligations on travel organisers become pressing.
Knowing when travel advice to a destination has changed is essential to a quick and appropriate response by the travel organiser. Foreign travel advice – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
