Before booking, please refer to the FCDO website to ensure you are happy with the travel advice for the destination(s) you are visiting. Up to date Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office travel advice is available here. The FCDO Travel Advice Unit no longer has a contact telephone number.
In addition to monitoring the FCDO advice, Martin Randall Travel (MRT) has contracted the services of a medical, security and travel assistance company, International SOS & Control Risks. Staffed by security specialists and regional experts around the globe, the service enables MRT staff to access comprehensive country information on-line, receive live alerts concerning travel disruption or security concerns as well as being able to call country experts 24 hours a day. The travel advice given by International SOS & Control Risks may sometimes differ from that of the FCDO. In such instances we would invariably follow the advice of the FCDO.
