First of all, apologies to those not in the UK – you are probably tired of hearing about Brexit. Imagine how us Brits feel!

We know that many people have been nervous about making travel plans this year from the UK to Europe due to the uncertainty regarding travel arrangements. Now that the leave date has been put back to the end of October it means that we can all relax in the knowledge that for the summer of 2019 there will be no impact on travel between Britain and Europe. If a deal is agreed in the meantime then the existing arrangements will continue until 2021. For full details check out the ABTA website, to sumarise:

  • Existing passports are still fine, NO VISAS are needed and you can still use the EU lanes at airports.
  • UK driving licences are valid for both driving and car rental.
  • If you are bringing your own car no additional insurance is needed, you won’t need a green card, and you can still fill your boot with our wonderful local wine for your personal consumption.
  • International health care is still available, at zero or very little cost. (EHIC)
  • Flights will operate normally between the UK and Europe and the protection provided by European Law will still apply.
  • Your UK phone contract for minutes and data will still be valid, no roaming charges.

So as what promises to be a glorious Easter weekend approaches, why not book yourself a bit more sunshine, just in case it doesn’t last until October. We have some great deals in May and June and there’s still some availability over the summer.

 

Go on Theresa – you need a break!
