Okay. So Brexit has happened. The UK is officially out of the European Union. Is it good? Is it bad? Well, there’s a lot of political discussion going on, and the UK has nearly a year to fix some of its pending trade deals. However, the travelling community is also looking forward to the changes and how they are going to affect travel to Europe. And we guess, you too may have the same questions. So, here we are, with all the answers. Let’s read and find out whether and how Brexit will affect your Europe trip in 2020.
Formed by joining Britain and exit, Brexit is a modern term that started being used since the idea of Britain exiting out of the European Union gained popularity. And yes, you guessed it right. Brexit refers to Britain exiting out of the European Union. This became possible soon after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party won in December’s general election. That earned Mr Johnson the power to easily pass the legislation in early January (Yes, only a month). And then, the European lawmakers agreed upon this proposal, and so, it’s the state now.
Oh yes, this is one thing that may change a bit. On European airports, there are always two queues at immigration. One of these is for European citizens, and one is for Non-European citizens. Starting from February 1st, travellers from the UK will still be allowed in the queue for European citizens. Apart from this, Border checks won’t change during the transition. Although, after December 31st, all of this may change when UK citizens become third-country nationals in Europe.
The cost of travel for UK citizens is also likely to increase, although it could be beneficial to those travelling into the country as exchange rates are affected. Moving further, here’s what’s going to change for travellers who are planning a Europe trip in 2020. Yes, reports say that travel to the UK is going to get costlier than ever. So, yes, that’s one thing that you may have to worry about.
So, Brexit is here, and the travelling community has a few things to care about. In this post, we tried talking about those points. Hopefully, this was helpful.
