The government and ABTA have dismissed the claim that holidaymakers will be advised not to book travel after March next year after The Sunday Times reported on a ‘government leak’.
It has been confirmed by the government that this news story is ‘categorically untrue’.
In response to this, ABTA has released a statement, a copy of which is below:
Number 10 has said that the content of the report in the Sunday Times is categorically untrue. The European Commission has said that even in a no-deal scenario, flights will still operate between the UK and EU, and a visa is not required. ABTA is providing holidaymakers and travellers with advice about Brexit and travel, including on pet passports and driving licences, which can be found at abta.com/brexit.
