Brexit advice – practical tips for our guests travelling with us after Brexit

Whilst it is incredibly difficult to predict what is going to happen regarding the final outcome of Brexit we wish to ensure our guests avoid, where possible, any potential disruption. We have put together the following advice and actions that we recommend you take in advance of your holiday. Please read the below advice and check the box at the bottom to confirm you have understood.

Passports

Please check the date your passport expires. When travelling to an EU country after 31 October 2019, the UK government recommends that you have a minimum of six months left on your passport on the date of your arrival to an EU country. The government has a useful tool to help you check your passport validity here. (Please note extra months added onto your passport expiry date do not count towards the required six months)

We would advise that you renew your passport sooner rather than later, to make sure you have it in time for your holiday. You can renew your passport online or by going to a Post Office with a Check and Send service. Full details on renewing your passport can be found here.

Travel Insurance

We would like to remind you that it is a condition of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place for when you travel with us. It is important that your travel insurance covers your specific needs, including, personal liability, any known medical conditions, holiday cancellation insurance and any activities you plan to do.

Regarding Brexit specifically, we would suggest checking the detail of your policy around travel disruption including delays or cancellations as policies do vary.

Driving Licences

If you are planning to drive whilst on holiday in an EU country on or after 31 October 2019 please ensure that you apply for the relevant International Driving Permit (IPD), these permits cost £5.50 and are available from post offices. Do make sure you also have your full UK licence with you. The IDP is valid for 12 months and the start date can be delayed up to 3 months from application.

We will endeavour to keep you updated on any Brexit news relevant to your holiday plans. We would suggest that you may also like to read further advice from the government:
