Brexit extension provides summer certainty, says ABTA

Travel organisation updates advice following Brexit extension

The new Brexit extension provides consumers with certainty over their travel arrangements for summer 2019, ABTA has asserted.

The industry organisation said that the announcement that Brexit would be postponed to at least October 31 was good news for travel companies as people will be able to travel within the EU as they do today.

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA, said: “The Brexit extension provides certainty for people’s travel plans going into the Summer, meaning they can continue to book and travel without the uncertainties that come with a no-deal Brexit.

“While many people have already made their holiday plans for this Summer, booking early to get the holiday of their choice, others have been waiting to see what happens with Brexit. Today’s announcement should give people total confidence to book their holidays and travel arrangements.

“Easter is traditionally a popular time to book a Summer holiday. The return to popularity of Turkey, Tunisia and Egypt, not to mention the rise of Bulgaria, is making prices really competitive, including in popular destinations throughout the Western Mediterranean.”
