Customers due to travel to Aruba, Barbados, Bonaire, Cape Verde, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Curacao, the Dominican Republic, Florida, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Mexico, Panama, Thailand, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Maarten and St Vincent and the Grenadines who would like to amend to an alternative holiday offered by Thomson and First Choice, and have a doctor’s note in line with the advice issued by NaTHNaC, can do so without incurring an amendment fee.
Once we have been notified that a customer has a doctor’s note, they have a month to book an alternative holiday to any Thomson or First Choice destination currently on sale. If the alternative holiday is cheaper than the original holiday, we will refund the difference – if it is more expensive the difference must be covered by the customer.
If you would like to make an amendment and have booked through a travel agent, they will be happy to assist. Alternatively, if you booked online, contact our customer services team on 0800 009 3834 & 0203 636 1995.
The FCO also advises people to take the usual preventative measures to avoid insect and mosquito bites including:
All flights are operating as scheduled and normal booking conditions apply for all travel dates to Turkey.
The safety and security of our customers and crew is our highest priority and we follow the advice of the UK Government and the FCO. The FCO's updated travel advice page for Turkey can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/turkey
We will continue to closely monitor the situation, together with the relevant authorities.
For further information:
Departure Tax - Jamaica
We have been advised by Jamaican authorities that, from 1st June 2016, the departure tax from Jamaica has increased. The tax, which was 22 US dollars per person over the age of two years old, has increased to 35 dollars. This tax is payable locally on departure, in cash only.
Yellow Fever Vaccination - Jamaica
Anyone travelling to Jamaica is now required to confirm that they have been vaccinated for Yellow Fever if they have visited a country with a risk of the virus in the six months prior to travel. This is a requirement of the Jamaican government, and visitors to the country must provide proof of inoculation in order to gain entry.
Customers due to travel to Jamaica who are unsure if they need a vaccination can find an up-to-date list of affected countries here.
Please note, customers travelling with Thomson Cruises to any affected destination will not be required to provide vaccination proof when they return to Jamaica.
As a result of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) continuing to advise against all but essential travel to Tunisia, and as there is no clear timetable for when its advice will change, we are not currently selling any Thomson or First Choice holidays to the destination. This will continue to be the case until the FCO advice changes.
