Premier Travel reassures holidaymakers worried by Brexit
East Anglian travel company Premier Travel is seeking to reassure local holidaymakers who may be concerned about booking getaways to Europe next year.
Over the weekend, national media reported that people should not book travel to EU countries after March 29th next year in case of a no-deal Brexit.
But Paul Waters, director at Premier Travel, which has 18 branches across the region, said customers had no reason to be alarmed or doubtful about booking their summer holidays.
“People should not be put off from booking their annual summer break as number 10 has confirmed that the content of the reports in various national papers is ‘categorically untrue’, “ he said.
“The European Commission has said that even in a no deal scenario, flights will still operate between the UK and EU. Premier Travel is providing holidaymakers and travellers with ABTA travel advice surrounding Brexit, which can be found at www.premier-travel.co.uk
“The key message to consumers is that they can feel confident that as long as they have booked a package holiday with a UK travel company, their trip is protected under the Package Travel Regulations, meaning they have the right to a full refund if their holiday can no longer be provided for any reason.
“We continue to see an increase in people asking for our advice on how they can ensure their holiday is protected for 2019.”
