People planning to travel abroad after the end of March will be required to have six months left on their passport in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The edit comes in a government notice to the travel industry over passport validity changes should the UK fall out of the European Union without a deal on March 29.
The key call to action is for customers to visit the HM Passport Office online passport checker on the governments GOV.UK website to see if they are affected and renew their passport early if necessary.
For example, UK residents wanting to travel on March 30 the day after the UK is due to leave the EU if there is no deal must have a passport issued on or after October 1, 2009.
The rules for travel to most countries in Europe will change if the UK leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal.
The government has increased planning for a no deal EU Exit and is asking citizens to make sure they are also prepared.
UK passport holders should therefore check their passport to see whether it is valid for travel after 29 March 2019.
Therefore, after the 29th March 2019 UK citizens should have six months left on their UK passport from the day of arrival, applicable to adult and child passports. If a passport is required to be renewed before its expiry date, extra months may have been added to the new passports expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months that should be remaining for travel to most countries in Europe. The new rules will apply to passports issued by the UK, Gibraltar, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey. Currently, UK passport holders can travel to all EU countries as long as they have enough remaining validity to cover the length of their stay, so its important to be aware of the above changes in a no deal Brexit
BOOKING YOUR HOLIDAY AND PAYMENT
Email us directly or simply phone Lowestoft 01502 574669 or Leiston 01728 830414 or call in to either of our booking offices and we will take care of the rest. You can make your payment either by cash, cheque, bank transfer, debit or credit card. Don't forget you can now also book and pay balances online.
All tour prices are based on 2 persons sharing a twin or double bedded room. Single rooms are always in short supply and there is usually a supplement to pay, which is detailed on each individual tour. All special requirements (eg. low floors, bath rather than shower etc.) will be passed on to the hotel but we cannot guarantee that it will be possible to comply in every case.
Your coach seats will be allocated at the time of booking. Some of the coaches have slightly different seating configurations but once booked, you seat number will not be changed without your prior consent.
We politely ask that you keep to one small medium sized suitcase per person, each weighing no more than 18KG ((40lb), and measuring no more than 70 x 30 x 45 cm. A small bag may also be taken on board the coach. On overnight hotel stops, all luggage must be removed from the coach for security reasons.
Here at Belle Coaches we are always looking for ways to ensure that you choose the right holiday for you. Therefore please give special consideration when choosing your holiday and if in doubt of any aspect of the excursion programme, please ask one of our experienced staff for more details.
We are only able to carry mobility scooters that come under the "car transportable" type. Due to health & safety regulations, these must not exceed 40KG in total and you must be able to dismantle the scooter yourself and have it readily dismantled at the roadside for your collection on the day of departure. Please note: Due to the size of the coach, we are limited to how many we can carry on each tour, however there is always the option to hire a scooter on tour!
If you live in the following postcode areas we will arrange to collect you from as close to your home as possible and drop you off at the end of the tour. NR1-7, NR13-15, NR29-35, IP1-5, IP12-13, IP15-20.
(Please note, due to the nature of some of our vehicles, it may not be possible to pick you up from your address. We will inform you near the time of departure of any necessary changes to your pick up point). The exact arrangements and pick up time will be confirmed 5 to 7 days before departure. If you live outside these areas, call us and we will do everything we can to arange a pick-up point that is convenient to you. A supplement will be quoted if a taxi is required. Alternatively you can be picked up from our Hadenham Road depot where your car can be securely parked for the duration of your tour.
On selected tours we do offer Travel Only. Depending on the availability of the tour this may not always be possible.
Very occasionally it may be necessary to use a coach with a different seating configuration or without an onboard WC but frequent stops will be made.
