HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Brexit

With a Brexit deal now completed and backed by Parliament, below you'll find a handy guide to the changes Brexit will bring to our European holidays.

Our aim is to help ensure everyone is as prepared as possible however, it is your responsibility to be aware of and follow all necessary rules and regulations. At the end of this page we've provided a link to the Gov.uk website which we suggest you save and check back on regularly.

Passport expiration:

Please ensure each person travelling has a passport that:

 - Is valid for a minimum of at least 6 months

- Is less than 10 years old

Travel insurance and the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC):

As we always recommend, please ensure you have a valid travel insurance policy before travelling.

If you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid up until its expiry date.

At immigration:

As we leave the EU, UK passport holders will no longer be able to use lanes designated for EU Nationals (often shown as EU and EAA), and will need to use the lanes marked for travellers arriving from the rest of the world.

You may also be required to produce the following documentation on arrival:

1) Proof of a valid return or onward journey

2) Proof you have enough money for your stay

(Lines at immigration could have a longer wait time than we'd normally expect after the initial transition however, just remember how close you are to your ideal and well deserved holiday)

Driving in the EU:

If you are driving your own car, to have valid insurance you must obtain a physical Green Card from your insurance provider. This Green Card must be carried with you at all times whilst in the EU. It's likely you will be charged by your insurance company for this Green Card and it is advisable to apply a minimum of one month before your holiday.

You will also be required to display a GB sticker on your car.

Visas and length of stays:

You will not require a visa as a tourist and you'll be able to stay for a total of 90 days in any 180 day period.

Will my flight operate:

Yes -no worries here as the UK and EU have ensured flights will continue to operate as normal.

Mobile roaming:

Who doesn't love taking a selfie and showing off on social media however, roaming charges could change. We advise you check with your network provider to understand your data roaming policy and charges before you set off on holiday. 

And finally:

You won't be able to take any products containing meat or milk into the EU. There are some exceptions for the likes of powdered baby milk and baby food. We suggest you use the link below to find out more.

You must keep up to date with changes to European travel rules and regulations:
