With all the talk of a No-Deal Brexit, I thought I would let you have the latest guidelines issued by the EU and the UK Government.
If you’re due to travel in the autumn, around the Brexit date, we at Spitfire Travel recommend that you “ensure that you have the cover for anything beyond your reasonable control”.
What does Brexit mean for your EHIC card?
“What about the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?”, some may ask. “It is currently thought that the EHIC will not be valid post-Brexit,”. The government is seeking agreements with those countries with healthcare arrangements for UK nationals after Brexit; however, nothing is yet in place. “To protect yourself, ensure that any travel insurance policy you buy doesn’t insist that you use your EHIC card for emergency medical treatment”.
It’s important to check the validity of your passport. Check that your passport is valid for your planned trip. Passports are only valid for 10 years from their date of issue. To return to the UK, you should have a minimum of 6 months validity on your passport on your date of return. This does not include any extra months added on by your early renewal.
Happy holidays! If we can help you further, please call in at any time for any help that you may need.
