Brexit reassurance

Rest assured that your holiday is in safe hands with Rail Discoveries

Are you thinking about your next trip and how it could be affected by Brexit? While it's still not confirmed what will happen, you don't need to worry about your Rail Discoveries holiday.

We understand that, at present you may be feeling uncertainty about travelling to and within Europe. To reassure you, below are some FAQ's that will hopefully put your mind at ease.

Should I book my holiday before Brexit or wait until after?

We have been operating escorted rail holidays through Europe for 45 years and are fully bonded members of ABTOT and ATOL, adhering to the new The Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018.

In case you are worried about Brexit impacting on the price of your holiday, our Price Promise ensures customers who book in advance will never pay a higher price than last-minute bookers. There's every benefit of booking early, as should your holiday be reduced in price at a later date, that saving will be passed on directly to you.

The European Commission has confirmed flights and rail journeys to and from the UK will still operate, and once you're in Europe, even if you're travelling between different countries, you will not be subjected to extra checks or restrictions.

Could my holiday be cancelled?

No, your holiday will not be cancelled because of Brexit.

Will I need a VISA to travel to Europe?

The European Commission has said that UK travellers won't need a visa to visit the European Union, as long as EU visitors don't need to apply for a visa when they come to the UK. From 2021, there's a possibility you'll need to pay of fee of seven euros to enter the EU, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Should I check my passport?

Yes. When travelling to the EU after 29 March 2019 the UK government strongly recommend that you have six months left on your passport (measured from the last date of your holiday) before it expires. If you need to renew your passport full details can be found at www.gov.uk.

Will I still be able to use my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

You won't be able to use your UK-registered European Health Insurance Card if we have a no-deal Brexit. It's a good idea to take out full travel insurance any time you travel to ensure you are covered for the essentials.

Rail Discoveries can provide your travel insurance, which is specially designed for rail holidays, please contact our team for a quote on 01904 527 105.

What about spending money?

It's difficult to predict what Brexit will mean for buying foreign currency. We always try and make sure our holiday packages include as much as possible to reduce your risk when it comes to foreign currency exchange rates, but there are many bureau de changes that will buy back currency at the rate you bought it for after your holiday.
