Brexit FAQs

Brexit will never dampen our love for our Channel neighbours!

Although it looks as though the UK is not going to be part of the EU anymore, we’re still as close as ever to our neighbours across the Channel.

So, while Belle France is based here in England, there’s a small corner in Goudhurst, Kent that is distinctly French!

Whether you agree or disagree with the Brexit decision, we want to show our allegiance to our EU friends by offering £100 discount off all Belle France holidays*, yes, you read that right!

Let’s get the Brits across the Channel! (and other countries too, don’t worry, you can still book with the discount too!)

Following the referendum and the UKs decision to leave the European Union, we've pulled together these FAQs to help answer some questions any Brits heading to the continent may have:

How does the Brexit decision affect my holiday?

The UK is still officially part of the EU until Article 50 is triggered and the terms of exit are agreed; therefore British passport holders are still free to travel between the UK and EU, as they were prior to the referendum.

Can I still use my British passport to travel to Europe?

You can continue to use your British passport to travel to Europe. Your passport is a British document, it's not an EU passport, so your passport will stay the same.

Do I now need a travel visa?

Limitations may be placed on British nationals' ability to live and work in EU countries, but it is unlikely that they would want to deter tourists. There are countries outside the EEA that British citizens can visit for up to 90 days without needing a visa, it is possible that similar agreements could be made with European countries.

Is my European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) card still valid?

The European Health Insurance Card remain valid, though we always recommend that you take out personal travel insurance.

What if I'm travelling to Europe from America, Australia, New Zealand...?

There has been no change to your visa & passport requirements. Your passport must be valid for 3 months beyond your stay and issued within the past 10 years. Visas are not normally required for US, Australian, New Zealand or Canadian nationals dependent upon your length of stay.

*Brexit offer based on two people sharing. Bookings must be made by 21st July, and make sure to quote "Vive La France" when speaking to one of our team to qualify for your £100 discount.
