The UK government has launched a new campaign which aims to get holidaymakers ready for the changes to travel Brexit will bring when the UK officially leaves the EU in January 2021.
The information, published in print, online and on social media, explains the new rules coming into force for trips to the European Union from January 1, 2021.
Holidaymakers are being urged to make sure their passport is up-to-date with at least six month validity left, as if not, they may not be allowed to visit most EU countries.
The popular European Health Insurance Cards may also no longer be valid, so appropriate travel insurance is essential.
Travellers may also need international driving permits in some countries.
Some other things traveller should be aware of is the switch to a different process for taking pets abroad, which takes four months, and the end of the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU.
ABTA Chief Executive Mark Tanzer said: “Many people will be making plans for travelling to Europe next year, so ABTA and its members are keen to work with the UK government to make customers aware of any changes that will affect their travel arrangements.”
