TUI cancels tours to SL

by Sujeeva Nivunhella reporting from London

Leading London based tour operator TUI has on the basis of British government guidelines, stopped all tours to Sri Lanka with immediate effect.

TUI said: “Due to the on-going political and economic instability in Sri Lanka, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has advised against all but essential travel. As a result, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel all holidays to Sri Lanka departing up to and including 31 May 2022. We will be proactively contacting all impacted customers in order to discuss their options.”

The British Government advised all citizens not to travel to Sri Lanka unless it is absolutely necessary.  “There have been a number of protests since 31 March 2022. Further protests are likely to take place across the island. The Government of Sri Lanka may impose local restrictions at short notice. You should be vigilant, avoid any demonstrations or large gatherings, and follow the advice of the local authorities,” the FCDO travel advisory said.

FCDO has also warned that should British citizens choose to travel to Sri Lanka against advice their travel insurance will be void.
