Brexit Information And Advice

As the 'UK Withdrawl Agreement' has now been ratified by the EU, the UK will enter a transition period from 1st February 2020 and everything will continue to remain the same, so you can travel within the EU as you do now up to and including 31st December 2020.


Travel after 31st January 2020

During the transition period:-

All forms of transport from the UK to the EU will continue to operate as they do now.

The conditions for driving within the EU will remain as they are now. As long as you have a full UK driving licence, you don't currently need an additional licence to drive in the EU. This will not change. An International Driving Permit will not be required and you will not need a GB sticker or a Green Card for car insurance.

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will continue to be valid.

Valid passports can still be used. You do not need to have six months left on your passport to travel to the EU. Your passport does however need to be valid for the whole of your trip.

British Citizens won't need a visa to travel to the EU.

There will be no change in relation to taking pets abroad.

Under EU rules, the cost of making calls, sending messages or using the internet on your phone in the EU is the same in the UK and this will continue.


Travel after 1st January 2021

Any changes to the current arrangements for travel within the EU from the end of the transition period will be advised as and when they become known.
