VJV Traveller

 

The VJV Traveller is an area of our website dedicated to our travellers, and those joining us for the first time, where you can learn more about the Company and our services, and glean both general and specific information on various aspects of travel.

Latest FCO Travel Advice

Our policy for travel to areas experiencing local disruption is determined by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice. Our tours will not depart during a period when the FCO are advising against non-essential travel. Once the FCO advice is relaxed, and therefore it is deemed safe to return to these areas, then tours will re-commence and will be subject to our normal booking conditions. Please note: Visa fees are not refundable once visas have been ordered.
