Advice on travel warnings – government warnings

You’ve probably seen or heard of government travel alerts/warnings.

If you have seen a few, they all seem to be the same.

Very broad advice, often about a whole country or region

with little information on exactly what to do with this information

or if it even affects you, your travel or your specific destination.

Your government is often obligated to warn all their citizens,

even if they are not directly affected. It’s good governance

but not great travel safety advice though.

Get the facts, determine if it affects you and your travel

then, and only then make a decision to travel.

Don’t make a decision based on one single source or viewpoint.

Remember to check if your travel insurance excludes coverage after an alert/warning

We recommend you conduct even a basic risk assessment before travelling

…so does your government.
