TERROR ATTACKS AT popular tourist destinations have created turmoil in the travel industry.

The president of the Irish Travel Agents Association Martin Skelly said,“What has happened so far is that the people that had bookings made are a bit anxious.

“It has had some effect on forward bookings – but short term forward bookings really. People are reluctant to travel.”

The Department of Foreign Affairs updated its travel advice for Irish citizens travelling to Belgium or France this week, reminding people to ‘exercise extreme caution’ if they are planning a trip to France.

Skelly also added that Irish holidaymakers are especially concerned about travelling to Paris and Brussels, with a number of people cancelling their trips on short notice.

So today we’re asking, Would you be anxious travelling to Paris or Brussels?
