The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) has issued the following advice to travellers to the EU:
The Brexit extension to 31 October 2019 has provided absolute certainty that all current arrangements for travel will remain as they are today. For example:
You will still have access to state medical care in any EU country as long as you have an up-to-date European Health Insurance Card. ABTA always advises that travellers should also take out travel insurance and make sure it covers any medical conditions or activities they plan to do.
Your pet passport will still be valid.
If you plan to drive in the EU, you won’t need an International Driving Permit, and if you are taking your own car, you won’t need a Green Card for insurance.
You will be able to move through UK ports and airports as usual, using the EU/EEA passport gates.
All consumer rights and benefits from EU laws will also remain, including airline compensation for cancellation or delays, and the ability to use your mobile phone abroad without additional charges.
What will happen after 31 October 2019?
If the Government agrees a deal on or before that date, the UK will then enter a transition period, during which everything will continue to remain the same and you can continue to travel as you do now.
