Travel insurance can be invalid in 'Don't Go' countries

Foreign & Commonwealth Office

People who travel to countries listed on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's ‘Don't Go To’ list could find that their holiday travel insurance cover is invalid if they need to make a claim, warns Shelter Offshore.


Currently, the FCO advises strongly against all travel to Somalia and all travel to parts of Afghanistan, Georgia, Iraq, Israel and Palestine, Lebanon, Nigeria, Thailand and Zimbabwe, among others.


People planning a trip abroad should always check on the FCO website before booking a holiday.
