What about Brexit?
We recommend visiting ABTA's Brexit advice for travellers page, which has lots of useful information and practical advice.
If you're travelling before 31 January 2020, the Brexit extension to 31 January 2020 has provided absolute certainty that all current arrangements for travel will remain as they are today.
If you're travelling after 31 January 2020, if Parliament ratifies the Withdrawal Agreement before 31 January 2020, the UK will enter a transition period, meaning everything will remain the same and you can continue to travel as you do now until at least the end of December 2020.
In the event of a no-deal exit, UK holidaymakers and business travellers have had reassurances from the UK Government and European Commission that they will still be able to travel, as there is either contingency legislation in place or the travel services are covered by international law.
If the UK does leave the EU without a deal, there will be some changes and there are some actions you may need to take in advance so that you can continue with your holiday or business trip as planned.
If we do end up leaving the EU without a deal, the UK government recommends that adults and children have at least 6 months’ validity remaining on your passport on your date of travel. If your passport was issued over 9 years ago, you may be affected. If you renewed your passport early, extra months would have been added to your new passport. Any extra months on an adult passport will not count towards the validity requirement, so some passport holders will need to have more than 6 months remaining in order to travel. You can check your passport online.
