Travel and Brexit

Many of our guests are booking holidays for 2019 and have some questions about what might happen. The political process is ongoing and the outcome unknown, however after we leave the European Union (EU) on 29th March 2019, British passports will still be valid for travel from the UK to the EU.

In the event of a no deal outcome

Even in the event of a ‘no-deal’ situation. After we leave the EU, British passports will still be valid for travel from the United Kingdom to the European Union, no matter whether you are travelling for a package holiday, a business trip or anything in-between. The government recommends that for travel after 29th March 2019, your passport should have at least six months validity remaining.

In ABTA’s recent bulletin, 17/12/18, it is stated:

Quote from ABTA

“Number 10 has said that the European Commission has said that even in a no-deal scenario, flights will still operate between the UK and EU, and a visa is not required. ABTA is providing holidaymakers and travellers with advice about Brexit and travel, including on pet passports and driving licences, which can be found at abta.com/brexit.”

ABTA’s advice on travel:

Quote from ABTA

‘UK citizens can be reassured that regardless of the Brexit outcome planes will still fly between the UK and the EU: if a deal is agreed then we will be in a transition period, meaning everything will stay the same until the end of December 2020 and flights will continue as normal.’

What happens if I book to travel after 29 March 2019 and my holiday can’t go ahead due to Brexit?

There is nothing to suggest that you will not be able to continue with your holiday plans after 29 March. Even in a no-deal scenario, the European Commission has said flights to and from the UK will still be able to operate.

Customers who book a package holiday with a UK travel company like Alpine Elements enjoy the most comprehensive consumer protection: if you book a package including flights, your holiday will be protected under the ATOL scheme. If your holiday does not include flights, protection is provided by way of our bond held by ABTA.
