We asked a couple of experts for advice on what people should do if they are in Turkey or planning to visit in the coming days. If you are set to leave in the next few days, we recommend researching the situation thoroughly – contact your travel agent, your airline and your hotel. Ask the embassy for advice. Make sure you have appropriate travel insurance and support – read the small print.

If you are in Turkey at present, we hope this advice is of some use to you. Stay safe!
