What does Brexit mean for your holiday booking?



The UK has two years to leave and negotiations will take time so none of the EU rules and regulations will change immediately.

When the UK formally notifies the EU of its intention to leave, the remaining member states will have up to two years to offer the UK a deal for a future trading relationship.

For the time being it is business as usual.


Pre-book and pre-pay extras

Currency exchange rates seem to be the principal concern for many in the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote, one way to mitigate against unfavourable exchange rates is to book inclusive packages and pre-book your extras.

Drinks packages and gratuities can be pre-booked and pre-paid on many cruises.

Ski packs and lift passes can be pre-booked for your ski holiday.



Cruise lines operate with an on-board currency so the effect of exchange rates may not impact you as much as you think

Will my EHIC card still be valid?

The UK has two years to leave and negotiations will take time so none of the EU rules and regulations will change immediately.

EHIC exists within a group known as the European Economic Area. Therefore, the future of Britons' EHIC cover could depend on whether the UK decided to sever ties with the EEA.
