Travel Consumer Guidance for holidaymakers with near future holidays to Tunisia!


HolidayTravelWatch is not surprisingly receiving a large number of calls from concerned UK holidaymakers due to travel on holiday to Tunisia. The Organisation closely monitors all destinations for the potential of ‘risk’ and has noted for sometime the growth of discontent in Tunisia. HolidayTravelWatch extends its sympathies to the Tunisian people and in particular those who work within the Travel Industry in that country, for the disruption and personal losses they have sustained. We hope that their country will return to a rapid stability and witness the return of holidaymakers to their fascinating country!

Intending UK holidaymakers are obviously concerned that they may be exposed to a ‘risk’ which is not of their doing. Many holidaymakers, who have contacted this Organisation, are due to travel to Tunisia in the next 2 months and are seeking to understand their Consumer rights!

Holidaymakers should read the full press release on our website which provides guidance on Package Holiday Rights and observations on potential rights for so-called DIY holidaymakers!

Holidaymakers who are contacting this Organisation are querying whether they should travel in February/March – some simply do not want to travel at all! It seems likely that the situation will take some weeks to resolve, if at all, and until such time as it becomes safe for the Travel Industry in Tunisia to resume its commercial activities, Consumer rights must be respected and applied.

Consumers concerned by events in Tunisia may also find useful our guidance given to holidaymakers following the recent civil war in Sri Lanka. Above any rights Consumers may enjoy, there is the serious issue of Travel Insurance cover and how to deal with this important matter.

Frank Brehany, the Consumer Director for HolidayTravelWatch states:

“I extend my sympathies to the Tunisian people at this time and hope that better times lie ahead for them! I congratulate the Travel Industry and the FCO for assisting UK Package Holidaymakers to return home; I am concerned for those so-called DIY holidaymakers and the assistance and rights they should be receiving! I sincerely hope that the Travel Industry will recognise the issues attached to this ‘risk destination’ and observe and respect the rights due to intending Travel Consumers caught up in this difficult situation, over the next couple of months!”
