No Deal Brexit Could Mean the Mother of All Hassles for Travelling Brits

No Deal Brexit Could Mean the Mother of All Hassles for Travelling Britsby 👩‍💻 Stephanie Boyd

Yes – Brexit – that ever-approaching deadline which has all but swallowed up British media over the past few years – is back in the news yet again, and this time, and for some time, it’s been about the possibility of the UK failing to reach a deal with the European Union when it finally abdicates in March 2019. A ‘no deal’ scenario has been offered up in some media outlets as something of a doomsday event in some cases – with stockpiling of certain goods reportedly ready to take place – and whether or not such events should come to pass, it appears that the lives of Brits over in Europe could be set to get a little trickier, if not more expensive.

During discussions about what will occur in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, the UK Government has been unable to guarantee that, for one, travellers from the UK in the EU won’t be subject to higher fees for using their mobile phones and tablets abroad. This may seem like a fairly moot issue – but with so many of us dependent upon mobile data across the continent, access to current EU directives being revoked will make things much more costly for British travellers and ex-pats alike. Despite these concerns, major networks in the form of O2, Vodafone, 3 and EE have advised that they have no plans to introduce any specific fees for roaming use while on the continent.

While this may be up in the air, what’s also being discussed is whether or not UK driving licenses will be considered valid for use in the EU once Brexit day finally occurs – once again, if a deal isn’t agreed upon. This may mean that existing drivers on the continent may have to undertake local testing all over again should they wish to drive their own vehicles – an endeavour which has already caused some concern online. However, again, it is at the moment a concern – but one which could become very real if a ‘no deal’ option is seized upon.

Time is running out for any kind of agreement to be met with regard to Brexit – with Prime Minister Theresa May under tremendous pressure from the electorate and her own political party, many are fighting for a complete removal from the EU – while others are warning that certain safeguards should at least be put in place. Seven months to go – where will it all stand in March 2019?
