New travel advice for British travelling to EU after Brexit

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The travel industry is trying to reassure tourists that their summer holidays won’t be affected by the UK’s departure from the European Union.

Little is certain about how travellers may be affected in 2021 and beyond at this stage.

ABTA, which represents thousands of businesses in the sector, has updated its advice ahead of Brexit day on 31 January.

After this date, the UK is set to enter into an 11-month transition period, until the end of December 2020, which means the country will continue to follow EU rules.

According to ABTA, this arrangement means valid passports can still be used as normal – and coaches and trains from the UK to the continent will be unaffected.

The cost of making calls, sending texts and using the internet will continue to be the same in the EU as it is in the UK, and European Health Insurance Cards (EHICs) will also remain valid.

Previous guidance from ABTA had suggested there could be potential changes in each of these areas – and that driving licences and the ability to take pets abroad could also be affected.
