Are you concerned about how Brexit may affect you holiday or maybe you have delayed booking your holiday because of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit?
Currently there is still a huge amount of uncertainty surrounding Brexit & if you are considering taking a holiday & travelling after March 29th we are sure that you will be concerned as to how this may affect your holiday? We have noted below the most commonly asked questions & their answers…we hope that you will find this information useful…
When booking a holiday do I need to be concerned?
The European Commission has stated that flights leaving the UK are allowed to fly over European Countries even if we have a NO DEAL situation…so the simple answer is no you do not need to be concerned about booking a holiday as flights will operate as normal.
Will I need a VISA to travel within the EU after Brexit?
The European Commission stated in November 2018 that even if the UK has a no deal situation, UK citizens will continue to be able to visit the EU without a VISA providing that EU citizens are offered the same when visiting the UK…therefore currently no visa will be required.
What will happen if I book a holiday to travel afer the 29th of March 2109 & then it cannot go ahead due to Brexit?
The UK Government & the European Commission have confirmed that flights will continue to operate as normal to & from the UK even in the situation that there is a no deal Brexit. We do always recommend that you have a good current travel insurance policy so that in the case that all / any part of your holiday can not be taken, you have cover, this is our recommendation at all times & not just with regard to Brexit.
Can I continue to use my current passport?
We would always advise that when travelling your passport is valid for a minimum of 6 months after your holidays departure date… this will ensure that you are able to travel even in a no deal Brexit situation.

Should I take out additional insurance cover?
It is always important to have a full & comprehensive travel insurance policy in place whenever & wherever you travel & when renewing check if their important terms & conditions have changed & if they are still relevant to your needs.
