You can swap holidays, say tour firms as first survivors fly home.

TRAVEL firms are giving holidaymakers who booked for Tunisia the chance to cancel or change their summer break.

And sun-seekers due to fly out in the next few days were urged to contact their tour operator for their options.

The call came from travel association Abta as extra planes began flying back holidaymakers desperate to get home after Friday's terrorist attack.

Abta said: "The first priority is the welfare of holidaymakers in the hotels affected by this terrible incident."

It added: "Holidaymakers elsewhere in Tunisia are advised to contact their tour operator and follow instructions issued by local authorities.

"Many of our members who have operations in Tunisia are offering customers the option to amend or cancel their bookings."

It said it was liaising with the Tunisian authorities and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and would keep giving updated advice.

Among the first to arrive home yesterday were honeymooners Helen and Darren Tait, who were joyfully greeted by daughter Brooklyn after they touched down at Glasgow.
