Information for customers travelling to Turkey

ABTA statement on the current situation in Turkey.

“Turkey is a popular destination for Brits attracting around 1.3M holidaymakers every year with July and August the most popular times to visit. The vast majority of tourist resorts are in coastal areas, hundreds of miles away from the cities where the large protests are taking place, so most people travelling to Turkey shouldn't be affected by the demonstrations.  Foreign Office advice says that travellers to Istanbul should avoid central areas where the demonstrations are happening and abide by the instructions of local authorities.”
