You may experience possible queues at ferry ports and Eurotunnel terminals at peak times, therefore it is recommend that you allow more time for your journey. Keep yourself up-to-date with travel social media feeds where possible.

MEAT & DAIRY PRODUCTS

You are not able to take meat, milk or products containing them into EU countries. There are some exceptions, e.g. certain amounts of powdered infant milk, infant food, or pet food required for medical reasons. Check the rules about taking food and drink into the EU on the European Commission website.

TRAVELLING WITH PETS

You will not be able to use your existing EU pet passport to enter the EU. You will need an ‘Animal Health Certificate’ to enter the EU and Northern Ireland from Great Britain. See GOV.UK for more information on exact vaccination requirements for the EU and Northern Ireland.

ENTERING EU COUNTRIES & RETURNING TO THE UK

At border control you will no longer be able to use EU-fast track passport control and custom lanes. You will need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queuing. You may need to show a return ticket and show you have enough money for your stay.

DUTY FREE PURCHASES

Duty-free sales of alcohol and tobacco beyond UK security controls will now apply on the same basis as non-EU destinations. When returning to the UK you will no longer be allowed to bring unlimited amounts of alcohol, tobacco or other goods for personal use. An example of limitations include three crates of beer, two cases of still wine and one case of sparkling wine. Visit GOV.UK for the full list of limitations.

MOBILE PHONE ROAMING

Surcharge free roaming will no longer be guaranteed when travelling in the EU although the big network providers have said that they have no plans to change their charging structure. Also, whilst there is a UK government regulation which protects against 'unexpected charges' by setting a limit of £45, above which the phone company needs the customer agreement, it's recommend that you check with your network provider before travelling.
