Brexit Holiday Effects

We appreciate that some travellers may be worried about the effects that Brexit may have for holidays that you have booked or considering to book but rest assured with Chevron Cruises you are in safe hands.

Whatever the outcome of Brexit flights will continue to operate between the UK and Europe. Booking with a reputable UK travel company that is covered by ATOL (Chevron Cruises packages are ATOL protected and a member of ABTA) means that your holiday will be covered under the Package Travel regulations, so even in the most unlikely event that your holiday cannot be provided you will be entitled to a full refund.

There are a number of countries where you already need a minimum of 6 months on your passport, however, we recommend that whatever destination you are travelling to that you have a minimum of 6 months on your passport to ensure you are covered with any changes that may occur. You can use the Governments online tool (https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/check-a-passport) to check if your passport will be valid in a specific country in the event of a no deal Brexit.

Visa’s are also widely required in a number of destinations outside of Europe. The European commission have confirmed that UK travellers will not need to apply for a visa if travelling in 2019, however from 2021 there may be additional documents or small fee to enter the EU.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, access to healthcare is likely to change. If you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) this is no longer valid so all travellers should ensure they have appropriate travel insurance.

Please note that as this is a changing situation so we will continue to update this information as Brexit approaches.

If you are still unsure or require any additional information then please do not hesitate to contact our team who will be more than happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
