How Will Brexit Affect Disabled Holidays?18 October 2018
European destinations are fantastic, whether you're looking for a wheelchair-friendly city break or a barrier-free beach holiday for you and your family. But with Brexit just around the corner - the official date is set to be 29th March 2019 - you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next accessible holiday. You might not know when to book, which benefits you'll still be able to access or even where to go. While nobody knows exaclty what the impacts of Brexit will be, we've done our research and we advise booking early to avoid the more likely issues. Keep reading to find out more.
The Essentials: Travel Insurance, EHIC and Visas.
Travel insurance is one of the most important holiday essentials so it's worth booking early to have the best chance of guaranteeing the details of yours - most comprehensive travel insurance policies taken out before March should still protect you against any changes to your arrangements before Brexit.
Going out and exploring a destination is one of the best things about a wheelchair-friendly holiday in Europe and knowing you can get an EHIC - European Health Insurance Card - to entitle you to free emergency care should you need it gives you the peace of mind to do so. Brits might not be able to get an EHIC after Brexit so it's worth booking soon to enjoy the security it gives you.
One of the biggest concerns for tourists and travellers is that British Citizens might need a visa to visit destinations like France and Spain after Brexit. Applying for and obtaining visas could involve fees and will probably be a lengthy process. Whatever happens with the 'Visa Situation', you won't need one to visit most European destinations on barrier-free holidays before the UK leaves the EU, which is certainly something to take advantage of.
Money: Value, Spending and Saving.
Experts are predicting that UK travellers get better value for money before Brexit than they will after. The pound's strength has been fluctuating since the referendum and its future isn't clear. Booking your holiday sooner rather than later means you know what you're getting for your money.
