Brexit Latest

Written by Paul Rollason

Please find some information below on what you can tell your customers regardless of a deal or no deal Brexit. 
• Flights from the UK to Europe will operate. The European Commission (EC)  has confirmed UK airlines can fly
• Ferry services and cruises will sail – shipping rules are mostly international
• UK passport-holders won’t need visas for the EU – an electronic visa-waiver scheme for the Schengen area is due in 2021 but would happen anyway
• Passports must be valid for six months from arrival date
• Package customers will enjoy full protection
• The European Health Insurance Card (Ehic) won’t be valid. We recommend that travellers take out adequate travel insurance
• UK drivers in the EU will need an International Driving Permit – available from the Post Office for £5.50
• Pets will be able to travel, but owners should consult a vet in advance about documents and health checks
