Brexit: Lanzarote Travel Advice

April 16, 2019

Thanks to the Brexit extension until October 31st, UK holidaymakers are now free to travel to Lanzarote just as before.

ABTA’s latest advice states that the Brexit extension provides ‘absolute certainty’ for British tourists wishing to visit Lanzarote and other parts of the EU.

You can view ABTA’s latest advice here in full >

Medical Care on Lanzarote

Access to state medical care in Lanzarote and other EU countries remains available to holders of a valid EHIC card.

Driving on Lanzarote

You will not need an International Driving Permit, just your current driving licence.

What If Brexit Takes Place Before October 31st?

If the UK Government agrees a deal on or before October 31st 2019, your travel arrangements will remain unaffected. As the UK would then be entering a transition period, during which all remains the same as now.

What if The UK Leaves With No-Deal?

It is still possible that the UK could leave the EU without a deal. In that event, assurances have already been provided about visas (you will not need one) and passports (which must be valid for at least six months from the date of arrival).

Other current arrangements, such as Pet Passports and your consumer rights also remain unchanged.
