A number of specific questions have been raised about what might happen after 29 March 2019 when the UK leaves the European Union (EU). We've identified some information and advice for people travelling abroad with caravans and motorhomes in the hope that it will help you find out what impact Brexit may have on your holiday plans. You can find this here: Travelling after Brexit

We will also try and keep you updated with relevant information on this discussion and please feel free to share information and advice with each other. We do ask that no conversations about politics develop - as you know this can often get heated! As such any political comments will be removed but we would really appreciate any constructive comments and information shared.

Nipped down to my nearest participating PO this afternoon to obtain my International Driving Permit on the basis that the crowd on the banks of the Thames can't seem to make their mind up. A rather unimpressive document - has all the gravitas of a Poundland loyalty card. Bit frustrating that it's cost me £5.50 for less than a year as my licence is up for renewal in December. Maybe by the time I have to do it again that shower up there might have got their act together.

Interesting...I've just been contacted by my insurers, Admiral, who have offered to send me a Green Card if I am travelling abroad after 29th March even though nothing has been decided. It is a free service and all I have to do is ring an 0800 number...

Relented yesterday and went to the P.O. for a new passport I don`t see a no deal but the way things are going it will be too late if it should go that way. The digital application took a couple of minutes includes the photo very very easy the £90.90 it costs also went quickly!

Hubby went for one yesterday.    Bit miffed that he could only have it for two years as driving licence runs out then but still - is now sorted for our trip in June.     PO assistant said it's been manic since mid February, but all in all the process was pretty painless.    Yet to decide if I want to get one too.

Confirmation of receipt of old passport a.m. today 12th then confirmation of new passport approval p.m.  12th they will confirm when passport posted - all very efficient !
