Should You Listen to Government Travel Warnings?
Here’s what some of your fellow Mobal Member’s think about government travel warnings…
Maureen Rea says:
“I usually check the government travel warnings so that I am aware. It doesn’t put me off travelling though.”
Jeremy Powers says:
“Depending on the warning, I actually LIKE the warnings. Years ago, I remember when a bomb went off in Piccadilly Circus, we went to London and it was wonderful because all of the other tourists stayed away. I figure that foreign countries are safer than the average American city.”
“I cannot or will not pay attention to any travel warnings from a country that supports the ridiculous and invasive screenings of the TSA. The USA is totally clueless as to how prevent or control terrorism, and tends to only spread irrational fear amongst its citizens.”
“It doesn’t take a brain surgery to know how to travel wisely, to have the information is useful and helpful.
It only take a little common sense to be a knowledgeable traveler. I wouldn’t take every bite of information to the extreme, just be aware of your surroundings, and where you travel.”
“For “normal” travel, like the recent European warning “No” but when I do start thinking to odder places (like a trip to Mali), I’ll check with the British Foreign Office. I think the US’s is way too politically motivated.”
“Dina you’re right on the money.”
