Before booking a holiday, it’s important to check the Government Foreign Office’s Travel Advice for travel warnings.
The Government issues a travel warning if a destination is currently considered too dangerous for British tourists to visit.
Warnings can be put in place for many reasons including active conflict, natural disasters or a block by a local government.
Travel insurance could be invalidated if Britons travel against the Foreign Office advice and they could also place themselves in danger.
This is the full list of countries the British Government currently advises citizens against visiting.
