BREXIT READY FOR TRAVEL FROM 2021

When travelling to Spain, there will now be some changes following Brexit. You need to make sure you have everything you will need in place before you travel. Things you may need to do before you go include:

Check your passport, on the day of travel it must:

  • Be valid for at least 3 months after the date you plan to leave.
  • Get travel insurance that covers your healthcare.
  • Check you have the right driving documents. You might need an international driving permit (IDP) to drive in some countries. IDPs cost £11, for more information visit the Goverment website.

While the above are current FCDO guidelines, requirements can vary dependent on the country and your carrier airline, and can change without notice. FlyDirect therefore recommends having at least 6 months validity on your passport to travel within the EU.
