Exodus has joined the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Know Before You Go campaign. If you are travelling from the UK, we strongly advise you to consult the FCO travel advice unit shortly before departure. This unit maintains and gives out travel advice and information concerning the security situation in most countries. Know Before You Go aims to make sure that travellers are properly prepared before setting out on travels overseas and have independent advice regarding each country worldwide.
The emphasis is on:
• Seeking the FCO advice about the countries to be visited before departure
• Having adequate travel insurance
• Getting to know your destination and finding out about local laws and customs
• Avoiding taking risks with money and possessions while abroad
• Leaving your itinerary and contact details with family and friends
The best way to get the FCO’s latest advice on a particular country is to visit their website www.fco.gov.uk/travel. Information can also be obtained by phoning 0845 850 2829 or by visiting BBC2 Ceefax page 470. If you live outside the UK you should consult the relevant authorities in the country you are travelling from.
Exodus receives updates directly from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and we check regularly with our staff on the ground. Should the FCO advise against travel to country or a region for any reason, we will contact everyone who is booked to travel to look into alternatives. However, circumstances in any particular country may change, sometimes without our knowledge. If we become aware of a significant change in the security situation of the country you are visiting, we will inform you before you travel.
