Rules for travel to Europe after brexit

As March 29th draws closer it maybe useful for those considering travel to Spain and other European destinations to seek advice if you are a British passport holder and if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.

Taking the time to plan for your trip before booking travel arrangements is wise and avoids potential disappointment.

We suggest checking both adult and child passports to ensure they meet the new rules that apply if the UK leaves the UK without a deal after 29 March 2019.

The new rules will apply for travel to and between countries in the Schengen area. The full list is available to view on the government website.
