BREXIT Likely To Ban Coaches And Ground Flights in EU Following A No-Deal

BREXIT could likely cause problems for UK travelers, with grounded flights and expensive visas threatened. The latest government report suggests that even bus and coach operators could lose their rights to travel to countries in the European Union.

Brexit has already threatened a number of travel issues for UK tourists heading to Europe after leaving the EU. Grounded flights, additional visas and new passport rules have all caused fears in regards to a no-deal Brexit.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, this could also affect bus and coach operators that run between the UK and the EU. The latest news issued by the government warns that this could end travel between the countries by road. This means that, when no longer a member of the EU, coach operators such as tours and holiday providers can still carry out a number of services. If this is not agreed upon by the March 2019, when the UK leaves the EU, it could put all journeys between the UK and EU by coach on hold.

The government document warns that there is a “greater risk of UK operators being unable to run regular services into the EU”.

Passengers looking to book travel by coach after March this year should check the terms and conditions of their provider. The government is also advising UK operators to consider alternative options such as seeking permission to fly between each state.

The UK government explained that “If the UK leaves the EU in March 2019 with no agreement in place, UK and EU licensed airlines would lose the automatic right to operate air services between the UK and the EU without seeking advance permission”.
