travel advice: help and assistance - Burma travel tips
When you need help urgently because something has struck a loved one abroad, call the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) in London on 020 7008 1500 (24 hours). Check out our international itinerary to help you schedule your journey abroad and remain secure while you are there. Bundeskartellamt Reiseberatung will help you to make your own decision on international trips.
We are committed to your security, but we cannot advise you individually. When you are worried about whether it is safer for you to go, you should review the itinerary for the land or area you are traveling to, along with information from other resources that you have ID'd, before making your own choice about whether to go.
You are the only one who can determine whether it is safer for you to go. If we consider the risks to UK citizens in a particular location to be unacceptable, we will indicate on the tourist information page for that particular land or area that we do not recommend all or any other than substantial itineraries.
Find out more about how the Bundeskartellamt evaluates and categorizes risks in the field of tourism consulting. If you are travelling abroad, our Übersee-Krise page will suggest a few extra things you can do to help you remain secure. You should consult your tour operator if you wish to modify or terminate a booking.
Reimbursement and cancellation is a business for you and your tour operator. Tour operators decide for themselves whether they want to provide their clients with a reimbursement or not. Most of them use our tour consultants to make these choices, but we do not tell tour operators when they can or cannot give reimbursement to their clients.
You can find more information about your entitlements if you wish to withdraw from a vacation on the website of the Citizens' Office. If you have any queries about your trip policy, please consult your insurer and if you are not satisfied with the answer, you can consult the Financial Ombudsman Service. We no longer ask anyone to check in before the trip.
With our International Journey Check List and our International Crises page, we suggest what you can do before and during a journey abroad to help you schedule your journey and remain secure. For an earlier FCO Notice, please consult the National Archives website. We are not in a position to offer tailor-made consulting for certain missions.
