Following the General Election, it is extremely likely now that the UK will be leaving the European Union. The current timetable means that on 31 January, the UK will enter a transition period lasting at least until 31 December 2020. During this period nothing will change. There will be no visas, flights will operate as before, and your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will continue to be valid. Passport requirements will remain unchanged, though we recommend that you have six months left on your passport based on your arrival date in the EU. There’s a useful tool to check the validity of your passport for travel to the EU here.
Most importantly of all, your booking with Travel Department is fully ATOL protected so in the unlikely event that we are unable to operate your holiday as planned, you will be entitled to a full refund.
What’s more, whether the pound rises or falls, with our no surcharge guarantee you can be sure that once you have booked your holidays, the price you pay will stay the same.
