Carlaw Says Travel Warnings Hurting Bali Travel

Booking from Europe to Asia are Up, But Bali Bookings Held Back By U.K. Foreign Office Travel Warnings.

(11/17/2003) An article in Travel Trade Gazette's (TTG) November 23, 2003, edition underlined the deleterious effect U.K. Government travel warnings continue to have on Bali-bound tourism.

That article, reported substantial increases in Far East travel bookings from the United Kingdom, with Thailand, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives the main beneficiaries of the business upturn.

U.K. travel operator, Premier Holiday's Product Manager for Asia, Dubai and the Indian Ocean, Mr. David Carlaw, told TTG that while bookings have recently increased to the region, Bali continues to suffer from Foreign Office travel advice discouraging travel to the island. According to Mr. Carlaw, there was tremendous "pent up demand" for Bali that his company would serve as soon as the travel advisory is rescinded.
