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.
Access to state medical care in Lanzarote and other EU countries remains available to holders of a valid EHIC card.
You will not need an International Driving Permit, just your current driving licence.
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.
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.
