Travel to Tunisia
Updated: 29 June 2015, 10:55
Further to the tragic events last week in the Tunisian resort of Sousse, we would like to extend our sympathies to all those affected.
Guests currently in resort
Our first priority remains the safety and security of our guests in resort. The Red Sea Holidays programme includes several Sousse hotels, and we have a number of guests in the resort currently. We have an experienced resort team; they have been in regular contact with guests and we can confirm that none were affected by the incident. A senior company representative from the UK is in resort to help co-ordinate our response.
Tavel to Tunisia
At this point the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is not advising against travel to Tunisia, and all our flights are still scheduled to go ahead as normal. We recognise that some people will be concerned about visiting the resort, and for that reason we are offering customers departing up to, and including, 26 July the opportunity to change date of travel (up to 31 October 2015), resort or destination free of charge. Customers wishing to make this amendment must contact their travel agent or Red Sea Holidays, otherwise their original travel plans will remain in place.
The situation remains fluid, we are in constant communication with our resort team, local authorities and the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office so we can advise of any changes. We will keep you updated on any news on travel to Tunisia that could affect the enjoyment of our customers holiday via our this page, and our Facebook and Twitter pages. Please also see the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website for further information.
Travel to Egypt
Tourist areas such as Hurghada and Makadi Bay, Cairo, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel are all all peaceful and there is no Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against travel to these areas.
Sharm el Sheikh is also peaceful and operating normally. However the FCO do recommend against non-essential travel to areas of South Sinai outside Sharm el Sheikh, for instance to Taba, Dahab or St Catherine's Monastery. We have temporarily suspended excursions to these destinations.
