    Passport details

    All five countries visited on this cruise British Citizen and EU Citizen Passport holders can currently enter all five countries freely with no restrictions or other documentation required.

    The UK has now left the European Union and we are in a period of transition. There is no need to worry when planning your holidays as it is very much business as usual and the EU has agreed visa-free travel for all UK citizens.

    For holidays that return before Dec 31st 2020 no additional period of validity is required on your passport. After this date, you must ensure that your passport is still valid for six months after the date of your return.

    For the most up to date entry requirements and travel advice we recommend that you log on and enter your passport details into, the simple to use, foreign office passport checker website which will tell you immediately if your passport will need renewing before your holiday.

    Health and wellbeing

    During the transition period – until Dec 31st 2020

    You will still be able to use European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Should you require medical help whilst away in most cases you will be able to use this card along with your passport and you should not be charged in a hospital. Doctor’s clinics may on some occasions charge as it is up to their discretion. If you do not already possess one of these cards you can apply for one online by visiting: https://www.ehic.org.uk, or by calling 0300 330 1350. There is no cost for the card, so be aware of some websites which may try to charge. Please note that you will still require your own holiday insurance.

    After the transition period – from Jan 01st 2021

    The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid for UK citizens. Adequate insurance cover will be required for all hospital emergencies and doctors’ visits. We do require details of your travel insurance policy well in advance of your departure.
