FCO Advice Against Travel to North Africa & Middle East

As a result of the civil unrest in North Africa & the Middle East, the FCO may have issued advice against all but essential travel to certain places in these countries, or entire countries.

If your travel plans are affected you will need to contact your tour operator or travel agent to see if they are able to offer an alternative travel destination or date.

If you are able to travel by changing your dates, please let us know so that we can alter your insurance policy to reflect your correct travel dates. There will be a small admin fee for this, plus any additional premium due if you are travelling for longer or to another higher rated geographical area. 

Travel insurance does not cover cancellation of the trip due to FCO advice unless this is specifically stated in your policy as an insured peril.
