Important Information: Political Unrest in Gambia

Following the change in FCO advice with regards to travelling to The Gambia, we here at Alpha Travel Insurance would like to clarify our position.

It was announced overnight that The Gambia is now in a state of political unrest following the presidential elections; in light of this the Foreign and Commonwealth Office now advise against all but essential travel. Thomas Cook are flying 985 package holiday customers home over the next 48 hours due to this, and up to another 2,500 customers are set to be flown back to the UK on the earliest available flight.

Travel Insurance policies unfortunately do not cover any travel when against the advice and recommendation by the FCO at the time of your departure. The current FCO advise regarding The Gambia can be found here:
