Confidence in Travel
One of the main reports from last week comes from comments made by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA)*, who made a statement regarding their confidence for British travel makers to visit holiday destinations in the European Union since the new Brexit date of October 31st, 2019.
ABTA has said travellers should have “total confidence” that their summer holiday plans should go without a hitch, and without the need for a visa. This statement has provided assurance for holiday bookers looking to book Serre Chevalier deals this summer.
The EU confirmed in April that Britons would not need a visa for travelling with the EU – even if the U.K. leaves the bloc with no deal. This offer will be upheld if Britain offers the same for EU citizens visiting Britain. This means your Winter 2019/20 breaks will require no organisation than you currently do.
Mark Tanzer, the Chief Executive of ABTA, said: “The Brexit extension provides certainty for people’s travel plans going into the summer, meaning they can continue to book and travel without the uncertainties that come with a no-deal Brexit.
“While many people have already made their holiday plans for this summer, booking early to get the holiday of their choice, others have been waiting to see what happens with Brexit.”
This is welcomed news for British holidaymakers looking to make the most of their summer breaks.
