While there’s still a lot of uncertainty surrounding Brexit, whatever the outcome, it’s likely UK travellers will face some changes when it comes to holidaying in Europe. This makes it a little daunting for those looking to book their holiday in the next year. So, how might Brexit affect UK travellers? Here, we’ll look at 3 ways it could impact holidays to Europe.

1. It will be more expensive to travel

One thing that is sure to change, regardless of the outcome, is it’s going to become a little more expensive to travel to EU countries. At the moment, the UK benefits from the open competition the EU introduced for flights between the Union countries. So, once we leave the EU, it will be down to Britain to negotiate new air service arrangements so that budget airlines such as EasyJet, can still fly freely around Europe. This could mean the costs of travelling will be higher than they are now.

2. There could be longer queues at the airport

At the moment, it’s too early to tell how airport queues could be affected. If there’s a no deal scenario, the government claims there will be little changes to the existing queues. However, UK travellers won’t be able to take advantage of the shorter queuing area which is currently reserved at airports for EU passport holders. Instead, they will need to use the same queuing system as international passengers. So, this is likely to take a longer period of time and will need to be factored in.

3. Changes to working in the EU

UK travellers looking to work within the EU after Brexit are likely to face the same struggles as EU travellers in the UK. There will be restrictions within the freedom of work movement and a lot more red tape to overcome. For this reason, it would be worth seeking professional legal advice from a company such as WithersWorldwide. They will be able to advise you of the regulations you’ll need to meet and help with all aspects of immigration.

These are just three ways Brexit could affect UK travellers. While it is still too early to tell exactly how things might change, it is likely the costs of travelling to the EU will increase and working and living within Europe will also become a lot more challenging. Those looking to book a holiday within the EU should do so before the Brexit decision is announced in order to avoid the potentially increased costs.
