What will Brexit mean for travel insurance for Europe?

The EU referendum vote has come and gone and the UK voted to leave the European Union. It was pretty close, at around 52-48%, but the nation spoke and Britain will leave the European Union, probably in the next couple of years.

Will trips to Rome be any different?
Will trips to Rome be any different?

In terms of travel and holidays in Europe, not much is likely to change. The biggest impact will be on expats living in Europe and Europeans living in the UK.

The EHIC card is not actually an EU thing as such, it is tied into the EEA, for which the UK might still remain as a member. The controversy is that the EEA generally allows free movement of people, which is what many voted against in the first place.

As we said, not much will change. If you are going on holiday to France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Portugal or any other EU country, then you will still be required to take out travel or holiday insurance. THIS IS REGARDLESS OF HAVING AN EHIC CARD!


Australia might be getting a little closer

Australia maybe a long way away but if you have grandchildren out there, then the potential 30 plus hours travel might just be worth it.


Australia is currently 22 to 24 hours away if you fly with British Airways via Singapore or Bangkok. The layover in these two cities is quite short, but in reality you might want to actually have a longer stop in between.

Flying two lots of 10/12 hours can be very punishing, to say the least!

There is even talk of flights to Australia from the UK being completed in one go, that would be from London to Perth, but would involve a very tough 18 to 20 hours flight.

Imagine being in a bad seat for the length of time, perhaps one that doesn’t recline. It would be something approaching a nightmare.

Until such a time that super sonic flights happen, maybe it’s better to have that 3 hour leg stretch in Singapore.
