Just thought I would start a new thread once again,due to some passengers not knowing about this service, that you can register with Locate..........and yes I do use this service myself where ever I travel.
Use the LOCATE service. Our embassy and crisis staff can then give you better assistance in an emergency .It only takes a few minutes to register your contact details and travel plans online and the local British embassy will know you’re coming. There's no need to contact them directly.
Also API details (Advanced Passenger Information ) that is needed by Thomson
Thomas Cook has now taken the Dominican Republic off their list to enter API before travel but they will take it at check-in by scanning your passports.
