Will the UK leaving the EU affect my travel plans?

With the news that the UK has voted to leave the EU, we’ve had a few questions from our customers asking whether this decision will affect their travels this year.

To reassure you, below are some of the questions you might have, and our answers.

We’ll always let you know of any changes to your booking and if you have any other questions, remember that Green Motion is happy to chat through any queries you have.

Can I still travel to countries in the EU? Do I need a visa now?

Yes, you can still travel to countries in the EU and you don’t need a visa. When you go on holiday you’ll go through passport control and show your passport, as you normally would.

Travel requirements haven’t changed since the day before the referendum, so UK citizens can still travel freely to much of continental Europe.

It’s important to remember that the UK is likely to remain a member of the EU for at least two more years. This means that any changes to travel could take a long time to implement, and there’ll be many negotiations over the coming months and years before any changes are finalised.

Can I still use my passport as ID for car rental pick up?

Yes, you can still use your UK passport for identification to collect your rental vehicle.

My passport has “European Union” printed on it, do I need to apply for a new one?

No, you don’t need to apply for a new passport, you can continue to use your existing, valid UK passport.

We’ve already booked our car hire for next year, will this be affected?

No, your car hire for next year won’t be affected. This is because the UK is likely to remain a member of the EU for at least two more years.

Green Motion International offers its car hire throughout the world with our brand currently being present in 25 countries, meaning you can enjoy our low emission car hire service in Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada (Toronto), Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Mexico, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Serbia, St Maarten, United States (San Diego, Miami, Orlando) and the United Kingdom (London Heathrow, London Gatwick and London Stansted) with further locations opening worldwide in the very near future.
