ABI Repeats UK Govt Advice on Sri Lanka Holidays – Cancel, Or Return ASAP

Should you visit Sri Lanka right now? Probably not, in view of the horrific attacks on western tourists and christian worshippers over Easter. The Association of British Insurers issued a statement yesterday, underlining official UK government advice.

Government advice against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka –  Association of British Insurers reassurance to travel insurance customers

If  you are booked to travel to Sri Lanka  talk to your travel agent, tour operator, airline or other travel provider. Travel insurance is designed to cover unforeseen events like this. Cancellation cover under your travel insurance should cover additional costs that cannot be refunded by your travel provider.

If you are currently in Sri Lanka and want to curtail your visit and return early, your travel insurance should cover any extra costs associated with rearranging return flights.  Check if you have the necessary cover in place or speak to your travel insurer.

You should follow the FCO’s advice if you do decide to travel to Sri Lanka or if you are currently in Sri Lanka –https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/sri-lanka
