All of our FlyDirect holiday destinations are within the EU, if you hold a British issued passport please see below information so that you are ready for your holiday:
- Have at least 3 months left after the day you plan to leave your holiday destination
- Have been issued less than 10 years before the day you arrive on holiday. (even if it has 3 months or more left)
- For example; to travel on 22nd June 2024 for 7 nights, your passport must have been issued on or after 22nd June 2014, and it must expire on or after 27th September 2024.
The above advice refers to FlyDirect passengers travelling on a British passport, including those issued in Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man. FlyDirect Passengers who are EU nationals must carry their National ID card or EU passport when travelling between the EU and Britain.
FlyDirect passengers who are travelling with a passport issued outside Britain or the EU must check the entry requirements for the countries they are travelling between. It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure they have the correct documentation, and/or entry Visa where one is required.
In the future all passengers travelling to a country within the EU, holding a British passport will need to apply for a ETIAS travel authorisation before your trip, as the UK is no longer part of the European Union.
Full details of the start and details date of the ETIAS programme are still to be announced, but is currently expected to be mid-2025 so will not affect anyone travelling in 2024. We will keep this page up to date with relevant information as we receive it.
The ETIAS Authorisation will be linked to your travel document once you apply (passport) and it will be valid for 3 years or until the travel document you used in the application expires (whichever comes first.) The cost will be around €7 and some people are exempt from the fee, including those under 18 years, those over 70 years and those who are family members of EU citizens along with non-EU nationals who have the right to move freely within the EU.
