rolling eyes Be careful what you wish for. If that comes about the kind of political, social and economic upheaval and chaos which would ensue would probably not lead to good skiing conditions and happy welcoming locals.


exactly our economy would be going South as well.

Well he posted that on 6th July 2016 as the first post under the title "Next Season is going to be a lot more Expensive", so obviously he meant during, or at the latest the end of, the 2016/17 season, which is - er- now! Laughing

@Alastair Pink, Exactly, predictions need a time scale. I am seeing 1.18 at the moment so would be cheaper than 2009-10-11-12 about the same as 13 , 2014 was about 1.25 so 4% more expensive ( but I drove so was quids in) and 2015 got a rate of 1.30 or so which was obviously cheaper.

Traveling to the EU post Brexit

Here's what you need to know...

No more cheap flights?

Discounted, no-frills flights began in 1995 and the boom has seen the likes of easyJet and Ryanair dominate the budget ticket market.

Cheap airline flights were introduced thanks to the EU's removal of the old bi-lateral restrictions on air service agreements.

Now that Britain is set to leave the EU, new service agreements will have to be made. If they are not, British airlines like easyJet will not be able to operate freely all over the EU.

Borderless travel

It seems likely that people will need a visa to travel into the EU. We might also have to join the queue for non-EU citizens at airports - which means we will have to wait longer in certain cases.

Passports

Currently British passports come emblazoned with 'European Union' on the cover, in accordance with EU policy on travel documents.

It's likely passports will still have a 10-year validity but the statement on the front will wane from the day we leave - even if the document remains the same.

Duty free in EU countries

As it stands, holiday goers have no rights to duty free or tax-free purchases when they are in EU countries but once we leave, this is set to change.

EU countries will revert to the same status as the rest of the world, which means you'll be able to pick up items for cheaper.

Lower compensation for delayed flights

Passengers are entitled to a high level of compensation due to the EU directive on flight delays and cancellations enshrined in UK law.

Although other EU countries and airlines will still be governed by this you might find it difficult to claim compensation. Some experts have predicted that you might even have to go to court to claim compensation in another country.

European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

The EHIC entitles all EU citizens to public health on the same basis as local people in other union countries.

This means it gives you access to state-provided health care during a temporary stay. Treatment should be provided on the same basis as it would to a resident of that country, either at a reduced cost or, in many cases, for free.

Britain is currently in talks about what is going to happen once we leave the EU.

Travel association ABTA said: "In the event of Brexit, applicability would be subject to negations. Limiting UK travellers' local health care access could have cost implication for travel insurance premiums."

The state of the GBP

Since Theresa May triggered Article 50 (the formal exit out of the EU) the pound has become weaker and holidays have become more expensive.

The pound first plummeted after Britain's vote to leave in 2016, before falling once again when the PM confirmed Article 50.

Mobile roaming data charges

Extra costs for calls, texts and internet use on mobiles is due to be scrapped entirely across all EU state members by June 2017.

Once we leave the EU it is unclear if a new deal will be set in place.

Well the UK was the driving force for that and as someone that flyaflys every week I predict there will be no great change. Most money making flights are on business so no change there.

So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much
The £/$ exchange rate in the short term is a function of money movements. Large amounts of money moving. In the long term, it is a function of inflation of costs of living within the areas where the currencies operate. (in theory) In practice there can be a premium to some currencies because of their status, and stability of politics over the long term.

The average long term £/$ exchange rate is around about $1.6 to £1 over the recent history (certainly since the Bank of England became independent in 1997, and well beyond that into 1980s too)

The expected long term future inflation differences between US and UK are minor, if non existent. (30 or more years is long term in my language)

One should therefore conclude, that the deviation from $1.6 to £1 average to the current level is probably a short term effect for a few years/decades. It should return to something like $1.5 to £1 in 5-10 years on average.

Either that, or the US is not going to grow as expected.

This, this and all of this

Only, I've been lucky enough to never be delayed, but if I was hey ho, poo-poo happens - suck it up, book a hotel room and drink some wine - I sit in longer delays daily on the M6 - I don't try to claim compensation from highways england when it happens

Regards duty free - never seen the point - the prices are often over inflated to the point its cheaper to buy online!

There are a number of countries in the EHIC scheme that are not members of the EU, more false news.

If Easyjet cannot operate all over the EU then it will mean more expensive flights for everyone, not just the UK. It may mean that airlines will have to have a small HQ in the EU, just like Easyjet have a Swiss company - other than a one letter difference in the flight number you cannot tell.

Currently the pound is worth 2 euro cents more than on the 29th March - more false news.

If this person doesn't like the UK that's fine he doesn't have to come here, but what is not tolerable is someone who doesn't claim to live here then continually attacking it for some bizarre agenda only known to them self.
