What happens if I book a holiday before Brexit?

Whilst there may be some changes post-Brexit, in any event, the UK will enter a transition period in which everything will stay the same until the end of 2020. You will not need a visa until at least 2021, flights will operate as normal throughout the EU, in the event of a no deal, the UK is intending to re-join the Interbus Agreement therefore coach travel should not be affected and, as per existing advice, appropriate travel insurance will protect you in the event of illness or accident. However, it is recommended that you ensure your passport is valid for at least 6 months after your planned date of arrival in the EU.
