With all the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, we’re sure you’re bored of hearing about what could be happening in the future, but an important bit of information has been released by the European Commission regarding future trips to the continent.
It has been confirmed that UK citizens will have to pay a fee of £6.28 (7 euros) to travel around Europe. This charge will come into effect in 2021 and is part of a world wide initiative where countries outside the EU will have to pay the new charge. The charge will allow travellers to visit countries within the EU for three years.
The new system is done electronically, much like the ESTA scheme in America, where travellers will be asked to fill in a visa and make their payment before travel. Part of the current negotiations into Britain’s exit from the European Union will focus on visas and travel with Brussels saying it would waive the full visa requirements making travel as cheap as possible for British citizens.
