WHAT WILL BREXIT MEAN FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP TO ITALY?
Many of us will be concerned about our next holiday abroad and how it could be affected by Brexit. Whilst it is still not confirmed what will happen, you won’t need to worry about your Bridgewater’s Idyllic Italy Villa rental and here are some reasons why:
WILL BREXIT EFFECT FLIGHTS TO THE EU?
Brexit should not have any effect on the flights you book. The European commission has confirmed that flights taking off in the UK will still be permitted to fly within the European Union’s airspace, even if a deal isn’t reached.
Even in the event of a no deal Brexit – flights between the UK and the EU will still take place as normal. Even when a deal is decided we will go into a period of transition for two years, up until late 2020 and changes will not take effect immediately / overnight

WILL I NEED A VISA TO TRAVEL TO THE EU AFTER BREXIT?
On 4th April 2019 the European Parliament approved legal changes to ensure that UK citizens will not need a visa to travel to the EU for short stays after Brexit – even in the event of a no-deal exit.
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO USE MY CURRENT PASSPORT?
Yes. Your UK passport will still be valid. However, It is recommended that you apply to renew your passport before you travel If you’re travelling to the EU after the 31st October 2019 and your passport is due to expire within six months of your date of arrival.
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO USE MY UK DRIVING LICENCE?
If you have a full UK driving licence you don’t currently need an additional licence to drive in the EU. This is likely to change in a no-deal scenario and UK travellers looking to drive in the EU on or after 31st October 2019 may need to apply for the relevant International Driving Permit which is available directly from the Post Office. The Government is also advising that you will need a GB sticker for your car.
WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO USE MY EUROPEAN HEALTH INSURANCE CARD?
You will not able to use your UK-registered European Health Insurance Card if we have a no-deal Brexit. It is a requirement of our booking conditions that you always take out comprehensive travel insurance.
