New government advice confirms extra red tape and expense for British travellers to Europe
One day before the UK leaves the European Union, the government has revealed that British holidaymakers and business travellers to the EU face onerous changes when the transition agreement expires on 31 December.
Many aspects of travel were previously uncertain, but it appears that the government has already made up its mind that, for visitors to the remaining 27 European Union countries, it will be a hard Brexit.
For the remainder of 2020, no rules on travel will change. But once the transition ends, visitors to Europe will face much more red tape and expense than the travel industry had previously hoped.
The new online advice says the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU will end.
Motorists will need a “green card” – a certificate extending their travel insurance to Europe.
