Foreign Office warns UK tourists in France on holiday over 'risk of violence'

UK tourists have been given a France travel warning as their summer holidays may face 'disruption'. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) recently warned holidaymakers about holidays in the European Union holiday hotspot.

"Throughout June, planned industrial action by port workers and air traffic control unions is expected to disrupt some ferry routes and flights across France, with some routes and flights diverted or cancelled," the Foreign Office admitted.

"Check your operator’s advice before travelling, including where you are taking connecting flights." It went on: "Until September, possible industrial action may cause disruption on the Paris public transport system (RATP). Check the RATP website for live service updates."

Britons were also warned: "Demonstrations, political gatherings, or marches can take place with little or no warning, particularly in cities. Follow the advice of police and local authorities. While most demonstrations are peaceful, there is a risk of unrest or violence. If you’re near areas where demonstrations are taking place, stay aware of your surroundings and move away if there are signs of disorder."

"The 2024 Olympic Games will take place between July 26 and August 11 and the 2024 Paralympic Games between August 28 and September 8 in France," the Foreign Office also said. "If you are travelling to attend: read our full France travel advice and sign up to get email updates, visit the official Paris 2024 and Paris Tourist Board websites for the latest Olympic and Paralympic Games information while you are in France, keep your personal belongings and valuables safe - if your passport is lost or stolen, see Getting Help."

The Paris Olympics this summer will take place from July onwards with plenty of Brits heading across the Channel to catch the action in the capital city in France, as Team GB compete for gold medals.
