98% of the population are Muslims, the remaining 2% are Jews, Christians and other denominations. The country's Islamic traditions have very little direct impact on holidaymakers.

Family contacts Holiday details for relatives

It is always a good idea to let a friend or relative have details of how long you will be away for, the address of the accommodation (if known) or the contact details of our local Holidays agent in your destination. Tell them which airline you are flying on and your expected UK arrival time if they are planning on collecting you from the airport.

Money & travellers cheques

It is recommended that you take a mix of Sterling cash and traveller's cheques. If you are taking Travellers cheques remember to make a list of serial numbers and keep the list separate together with contact telephone numbers for your credit card providers. Scottish notes are not accepted in Turkey and Tunisia.

Passports & Visas

It is your responsibility to make sure that you comply with immigration requirements for your holiday and that your passport is valid for the whole of your stay. You are further advised to have at least three months validity on your passport after your date of entry into your destination.

It might be a good idea to check for recent information. You may need to obtain a visa before travelling to some countries.
