Thomas Cook – Egypt Update
19th February 2014
Following recent news reports, we are continuing to monitor the situation in Egypt, working in close collaboration with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Our experienced Thomas Cook team on the ground in the Red Sea have again assured us that our customers in Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada are enjoying their holidays.
Currently the Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not see any risk of travel to the popular Red Sea resort and we are happy to report that we continue to operate our flight and holiday programme as normal to the Winter Sun Resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada.
Normal booking conditions still apply should any customer wish to amend or cancel. As a precaution Thomas Cook UK & Ireland has currently postponed selling its excursions to St Catherine's Monastery from the Red Sea areas until further notice.
The Foreign Office are constantly reviewing their policy and updates can be found on their website www.fco.gov.uk or www.dfa.ie for customers from the Republic of Ireland. Any further updates will be posted on this website accordingly.
