Updated guidance for travelling to the EU after 31st January 2020
ABTA and Eurotunnel have published some updated guidance for travelling to the EU after 31st January 2020. We have provided links to the relevant advice below.
We recommend that you read ABTA's Brexit advice for travellers. This reassuring advice states that if the Withdrawal Agreement is ratified as expected by 31st January 2020 the UK will enter a transition period until at least 31st December 2020, during which everything will remain the same for travel to and from the EU.
The government has also issued advice for UK nationals travelling to the EU in the event of a No Deal Brexit. Click here to read this information.
As always with peak period travel, major travel hubs will be busier than usual so we strongly recommend you are as prepared as possible. Please leave plenty of time for travelling and be prepared with drinks and refreshments.
For those of you who have booked a self-drive ski holiday to travel via Eurotunnel, please read Eurotunnel’s Brexit Travel Information where Eurotunnel confirm that their shuttles will continue to operate.
For all our clients we recommend that you check your passport in advance of travel. During a transition period there will be no change to rules on passport validity. In the event of a No Deal Brexit the government has an online validity checker - click here to check your passport is valid for your proposed travel dates.
