Following the general election, it now seems likely that the UK will leave the European Union by 31st January 2020.
Once this has happened, the UK will enter a pre-agreed transition period, which is scheduled to last for the rest of 2020. During this period, flights between the UK and the EU will continue to operate as normal during, and passport and visa requirements will remain unchanged, leaving holidaymakers like you unaffected (though we recommend you have at least six months left on your passport from your arrival date in the EU). Book one of our cruises, where all payments on board our British-owned and operated ships are charged in pounds, and you'll also avoid any potential exchange-rate fluctuations due to Brexit.
Above all, your booking with Newmarket Holidays, a full member of ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents), will continue to be covered by the Package Travel Regulations. And so, in the very unlikely event that we are unable to operate your holiday as planned, you will be entitled to a full refund.
And whether the pound rises or falls you can book with confidence, certain that the price you pay will stay the same thanks to our no-surcharge guarantee.
Whatever the future holds, your holiday is in safe hands.

Not according to the European Commission. The European Parliament have confirmed that UK citizens will still be able to travel to the EU without needing for a visa, even in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The European Commission has said that, even if there's a no-deal Brexit, UK airlines will still be able to fly from the UK to the EU. And the UK government has said the same will be true for EU airlines flying into the UK.
The UK government recommends that you have at least six months left on your passport from your arrival date in the EU.
Whatever happens with Brexit, your Newmarket holiday will continue to be protected, meaning that you will receive a full refund if your holiday can no longer be provided.
In line with ABTA recommendations, we have always advised travellers to make sure they have appropriate travel insurance whether they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or not, as there are limitations to the EHIC. This will become even more important in the event of a no-deal Brexit as the your EHIC card may no longer be valid.
