UK travellers reassured that Brexit won't affect their holidays this year

ABTA has updated its advice for travellers concerned about Brexit, reassuring them that nothing will change until at least the end of this year.

Chief executive Mark Tanzer said: "The UK is primed to enter a new Brexit phase from 31 January, when trade talks begin, and when it does nothing will change when it comes to travel.

"This means that valid passports can still be used, EHIC cards will still be valid and the same gates can be used at border check points. People can continue to make their travel plans with confidence that things won't change until at least the end of 2020."

ABTA research shows that 31%  of Brits are unsure about how Brexit will affect their travel plans.

Since the general election, hits to ABTA's 'Brexit advice for travellers' website page have increased by over 376%.

This new advice, which will be backed up with a radio and digital advertising campaign, replaces previous advice which reflected the government's 'Get Ready for Brexit' campaign and spelt out how a 'no-deal' scenario would affect important areas of going abroad.
