“The decision by the FCO to swiftly issue an advisory against all but essential travel to Italy in response to the latest measures provides much needed clarity for travellers.
“It means that those with travel insurance will now be able to cancel their trip and claim their money back.
“Airlines flying to Italy must do the right thing and allow passengers, who will understandably not want to travel, to cancel for a refund, or rebook at a later date or on a different flight.”
