How will Brexit affect British traveller's Ionian Holiday plans?

Your British passport must have at least 6 months’ validity and be less than 10 years old.

British passport holders arriving in Greece will have to queue with those from “the rest of the world”. Air passengers arriving at Heathrow and Gatwick from Greece will continue to use the e-gates for passport checks as British passengers. It is hoped that Britain will strike bilateral agreements with Greece to give British tourists preferential treatment in in exchange for similar concessions for Greek tourists visiting Britain. However, most of the Ionian island airports are not big enough to section off arriving passengers according to their nationality.

Those wanting to book car hire for their Ionian island stay will not be required to obtain an international driving permit – a British driving license will be acceptable.

Travellers returning to Britain from Greece will have a new duty-free allowance of 200 cigarettes, 4 litres of spirits or 9 litres of sparkling wine, 18 litres of still wine and 42 litres of beer.

Using a mobile phone in Greece should not become more expensive – but check with your service provider. Mobile companies say they will not reimpose “roaming charges” but will be free to do so if they so wish. As a protection, the government has set a cap of £45 in any billing period.

If you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) issued before the end of January, you can still use it until its expiry date. In 2021 Britain will begin issuing a replacement system to be called the UK Global Health Insurance Card. However it is a condition of booking with Ionian Villas that you have valid insurance, including health and repatriation cover, when you travel.

It will be forbidden to take meat or milk products (even in snacks) into Greece.
