Rotorua travellers are not letting the terrorist attacks in London and Manchester dent their travel plans.

This despite another attack being deemed highly likely by UK authorities.

Local travel agents said none of their clients had cancelled their trips to the UK and Europe.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs' latest travel advisory said UK authorities assessed the threat level of a terrorist attack in the UK at severe.


That meant another was highly likely. Although there was no specific intelligence to suggest another one was imminent, the ministry said.

Senior travel consultant Treena Moore from Rotorua-based Galaxy Travel said it was "business as usual".

"But there might be a few travellers who want to travel in the next couple of weeks and are taking a wait-and-see-what-happens-next approach," she said.

"One of our colleagues is in London now, and no one has contacted us wanting to change their travel plans, and we're still just as busy making new bookings."

Hello World Rotorua owner-operator Deborah Kay said a few clients had inquired about what it would cost to change their travel plans, but no one had cancelled.

"People are still definitely wanting to travel and not letting these awful attacks put them off, and we are still making bookings to Europe and beyond," she said.
