Brexit

For all holidays to the European Union, Switzerland and Iceland on or after 1 January 2021, there are:

 

3 key things you MUST check before you travel 

 

1. Check your passport

Passports need to have at least six months left on it and be less than ten years old. To check if passports are valid please click here

 

2. Get travel insurance that includes healthcare

EHIC will still be valid until your card expires if you are travelling to an EU country from 1 January 2021, but it's recommended that you have comprehensive travel insurance which includes cover for any pre-existing conditions.

 

If you apply for an EHIC now, you’ll get a GHIC, a new UK equivalent, instead. Find out more here

 

3. Take the correct driving documents

If you are hiring a car, you may need an International Driving Permit, as well as your UK licence.
