Top 5 'Brexit-Proof' Holiday Destinations
What does the future hold for the holidaymakers and travellers of post-brexit Britain?
With yet another parliamentary rejection, we are no closer to finding out. All that can be said is that, at this point, it’s anyone’s guess. Will you be able to travel visa-free? If not, how much will the visa cost? I can’t give an answer to these questions but what I can do is give you a list of the top 5 destinations that I believe to be somewhat ‘brexit-proof’.
All destinations are within (or partly within) Europe, are all safe to travel to and are ranked in order of how ‘brexit-proof’ they are.
5. Norway Capital: Oslo Currency: Norwegian krone Language: Norwegian Stunning fjords, the northern lights, snow sports and coffee culture. Despite being in the EEA and Schengen Zone, Norway is not in the EU. This reduces the potential blowback from Brexit and makes it our first ‘brexit-proof’ destination.
4. Switzerland Capital: Bern Currency: Swiss franc Language: German, French, Italian, Romansch Raclette, chocolate and scenic views like no other. Although it’s also in the Schengen Zone, Switzerland is neither in the EEA or the EU. The landlocked nation that are known for being neutral should be reasonably ‘brexit-proof’ and therefore number 4 on our list.
3. Ukraine Capital: Kiev Currency: Ukrainian hryvnia Language: Ukrainian Cosmopolitan cities, beautiful views and the sunny sights of Odessa. Ukraine currently has an arrangement with all EU countries, allowing citizens visa-free entry for 90 days. This is unlikely to be taken away from the UK as Ukraine isn’t in the EU, EEA or Schengen Zone, making it number 3 on our list.
2. Turkey Capital: Ankara Currency: Turkish lira Language: Turkish Turkish baths, eclectic cities and the holiday destination that sees tonnes of British tourists each year. Being only partly in Europe, Turkey is number 2 on our list. Already having a visa system in place at $20 for 90 days, UK citizens can continue to enjoy this ‘brexit-proof’ gem for years to come.
1. Albania Capital: Tirana Currency: Albanian lek Language: Albanian Albania is relatively unknown to the majority of the UK and it’s beautiful unesco sites and white, sandy beaches along the Adriatic are easily accessible. Albania isn’t a member of the EU, EEA or Schengen Zone and allows anyone visa-free entry for up to 90 days, making it the most ‘brexit-proof' destination and one for the bucket list.
