The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is advising against travel to my destination, can I get a refund?

In the event of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advising UK nationals not to travel to a given area, we expect all of our Members to offer clients who are due to travel imminently to that destination, e.g. within approximately 48 hours, the correct options. Members might be able to offer you an alternative holiday. If they can’t, or if the alternative means a significant change to your original holiday, they must offer you a full refund of all money paid.

In the absence of FCO advice against travel, if you cancel your booking the travel company may well impose cancellation charges in accordance with their booking conditions.
