Like others, we’re waiting because of our dog and what will (not what may) be required for her. We can’t do anything until the end of March anyway as we’re in Portugal until then.

Eurotunnel published some advice on their website yesterday. That's based on the govt advice which is pretty futile until we know the score at the end of March, but they do make two promises on there. One is that they will be running as normal whatever happens and the second is that they are offering cancellation refunds if people have a change of heart.

We will almost certainly be travelling to France in May/June this year. However, we are probably two of the many that have not made any bookings yet, because we can afford to wait another month and find out what a pig's ear our Government have made of the Brexit process first.

I feel sorry for all the ferry, flight and tour operators that aren't getting the income they should be as a result of this indecision, but ultimately that's not our fault any more than it is theirs.

We are booked to go to France in June, and will be doing no more than the last 30 odd times we have been there, unless told specifically and definitely different...........By someone WHO KNOWS!



Well we are half way there then we have a dog with a limp just need to get jabs done. I have brough some green and yellow card so that's sorted.

I am booked to go France in June, ferry and accommodation sorted. I will not be getting an IDL until I see it in black and white from a credible source. I have not needed one for Aus, NZ, SA, USA, Swazi, Lesotho,

I have worldwide travel/medical insurance. You need it for Europe anyway.

I am retired as a public servant, redundancy and pension, now running my own training business working 7 days a month, keep my earnings just under the 40% threshold, why would I want to be paying 40% tax! 😳

Quite frankly, if I have to jump through hoops just visit Europe, then Europe will not be getting my ££££££s. There is a big world out there! 😀👍

I will continue having 3 or 4 holidays a year........Happy days.

We are flying to Portugal next week and coming back on the 26th March just to be on the safe side.

Booked in January to go to France July/August via Euro tunnel just thinking if booking's are down might arrive early and be given an earlier & more expensive crossing

Green card arrived in the post on Friday - no charge so I thought I might as well get it! Very impressed by the service from LV!
