Planning your journey


Brexit travel information

Following the 2016 referendum result, the UK is set to leave the European Union on 29 March 2019. It is possible that the country will leave without a deal with the EU. If this happens, there could be changes to your rights if you travel from and to the UK, and you may also experience some local travel disruption. It will be important to plan ahead before you travel. 

We have provided some useful Brexit travel links below to help you plan your journey.
