The United Kingdom travel advisory issued a statement on Thursday saying, “If you’re in Tunisia and you don’t have an essential need to remain you should leave by commercial means.”
Since the advisory, it is expected that thousands of tourists from Britain will be returning home from their holiday, since the United Kingdom Foreign Office has warned that more terrorist attacks are, “highly likely,” according to CNN.
CNN also reported that just a month ago a beach hotel in Tunisia was attacked and killed 38 people, most of them from Britain.
The Danish Foreign Ministry as well as Finland’s Foreign Ministry also issued a warning about a possibility of terrorism adding that Tunisian “authorities are not capable of sufficiently guaranteeing security at the tourist resorts,” according to The Washington Post.
The Telegraph recently published an article for those that are currently in Tunisia, if they are unclear about what they should do.
The article offers some helpful information for those afraid of losing any money spent on the vacation. In regards to refunds the article states, “Your tour operator is legally obliged to offer you a full refund or an alternative holiday if the Foreign Office advises against visiting a destination. However, their policies will vary. Legally, they are only obliged to offer the refund if you are due to the depart within 48 hours, although many – like those listed above – have already cancelled all trips until November. Contact them to discuss your options.”
