As you may be aware there is significant political unrest in The Gambia at the moment following their presidential elections. Thomas Cook are flying home 985 customers from package holidays over the next 48 hours due to this unrest, and up to a further 2,500 flight only customers on the “earliest available flight”.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office now advise against all but essential travel to The Gambia, and following this we here at Travel Insurance Facilities would like to take this opportunity to clarify our position.
Travel Insurance policies will unfortunately not cover any travel when it is against the advice or recommendation published by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office applicable at the time of your departure. The current FCO advice for The Gambia can be found at the following link – https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/gambia
