Travel association ABTA has updated its advice ahead of Brexit day on 31 January, stating that the 11-month transition period, running until December, means "arrangements will remain the same".
The move is designed to reassure those who were concerned about how the UK’s departure from the EU would affect their travel plans to Europe this summer.

According to ABTA, this arrangement means valid passports can still be used as normal; coaches and trains from the UK to the continent will be unaffected; the cost of data roaming, calls and texts will continue to be the same in the EU as they are in the UK and European Health Insurance Cards (EHICs) will remain valid.
Previous guidance from ABTA had suggested there could be potential changes in each of these areas and that driving licences and the ability to take pets abroad could also be affected.


However, little or nothing is certain about what will happen after 31 December 2020.

Europe is the number one overseas destination for UK travellers, with over 58 million trips abroad each year.
