AN exclusive poll by global flight and #travel deals website, Cheapflights.co.uk, ahead of tomorrow’s (29 March) triggering of Article 50, reveals that nearly 80 per cent of Brits are concerned about holidaying in a post-#Brexit #Europe.
Fears over rocketing prices, increased bureaucracy and a less than friendly reception top the list of worries, with many UK travellers planning to take their future holidays in the US, Caribbean, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand or on home soil instead.
Cheapflights’ poll, conducted among 2,000 Brits, shows that nearly half (49 per cent) cited the potential impact on the strength of the Pound and less value in their holiday wallets as their primary worry, followed by concerns around losing guaranteed local health care via the European Health Insurance Card (36 per cent); rumours of visas to visit EU destinations (35 per cent); and higher airfares (33 per cent). Nearly a third (31 per cent) highlighted a concern that EU residents might be less welcoming to British tourists, and others (20 per cent) noted fears around the return of the punitive mobile-phone charges phased out in recent years.
