Halsbury Travel

How Will Brexit Affect My School Trip?

Posted in: Politics

Following the result of the EU referendum, we understand that many party leaders will be wondering how this may affect their tour planning and what the potential implications may be for tour prices.

The good news is that, certainly in the short term, not much will change and your tour should be able to proceed as normal.

In fact, if you are planning a school trip, now is the ideal time to book!

For tours booked before 31st July 2016 (i.e. deposits received, together with a completed booking form and passenger names list for flight tours), we will honour and guarantee your current quote and tour price

If you’re unable to book before the end of July, the validity of your quote will expire at the end of July (as normal) and Halsbury will re-assess your quoted tour price upon your return to school in September, subject to exchange rates at that time. Unfortunately, in the current climate, we’re unable to guarantee tour prices over the long summer period.

Therefore, in order to guarantee your tour price, we strongly recommend that your tour is booked before the end of July, if at all possible.

ABTA statement on the EU referendum result

The Prime Minister has stated that there will be no initial change in the way people travel. Travellers are as free to move between the UK and the EU as they were yesterday, European Health Insurance Cards remain valid and regulations such as Air Passenger Rights remain in place. People due to travel this summer will see little changes to their holiday. Once the UK formally notifies the EU of its intention to leave, the remaining Member States will have up to two years to offer the UK a deal for a future trading relationship and during this period holidaymakers will not see any immediate changes. 

Should you have any questions or require any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help.

If you’re ready to book, then please just let us know and we’ll forward the necessary documents to complete your booking.
