These attacks, whilst in the news recently, are relatively rare. If an attack happens in a destination within a week of your travel dates, your tour operator will take advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. As an experienced tour operator, WST would normally advise against immediate travel (within a few days) irrelevant of the FCO guidance.
Even when FCO travel restrictions are relaxed, WST will happily work with schools uncomfortable continuing with their original plans.
WST will endeavour to keep your learning outside the classroom plans on track and where necessary look to change dates or switch destination, often at no extra cost.
Educational tour operators who are fully STF bonded are bound by high standards of safety management and must have a 24 hour emergency system in place. Should events occur whilst you are on tour, you can be assured of expert advise and support to quickly and effectively place your group in the safest place possible.
In the event that the FCO advise against travel, STF members are bound by the Package Travel Directive to offer either a full refund or an alternative tour.
