DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS TRAVEL ADVICE
Two poignant anniversaries have passed this summer.
The 2nd anniversary of the mass shooting in Port El Kantaoui, Tunisia, occurred on the 26th June and the 14th July, marked the 1st anniversary of the Bastille Day attack in Nice, when a cargo vehicle was deliberately driven into crowds celebrating the French national holiday.
The Department of Foreign Affairs provides up-to-date travel advice to help Irish citizens make informed decisions about travelling abroad.
Travel companies are being urged to work with Department of Foreign Affairs to increase consumers’ level of awareness of where to find government travel information, so that they can inform themselves and keep informed about the level of risk of terrorist attacks in destination countries.
This can be achieved by members including a link to the travel advisory section of the Department of Foreign Affairs website and displaying any related logos in brochures, promotional materials and websites, in a prominent manner.
At the time of booking, sales staff can also inform customers of the availability of advice and direct them to the Department of Foreign Affairs website, so customers can make informed decisions about their travel choices and also keep up to date on any changes.
