Britain should try to get visa-free travel between the UK and European Union in forthcoming negotiations to quit the bloc on Tuesday, an association of travel agents. Last Wednesday, Britain had started formally began its separation from the European Union.
On the other hand, airlines have brought to the forefront the issue that their sector should be prioritized in the impending years of negotiations to make sure that there is no disruption to flight services. However, the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) confirmed that the protection and maintenance of visa-free travel between UK and EU was among its main concerns after the Brexit.
The protection of Britons’ ability to travel without restraint to Europe and other countries and protection of consumer rights and constancy and growth opportunities for British businesses were the other goals for ABTA to execute.
To quote Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA, ‘Travel and tourism is one of the UK’s largest industries and it is vital that the Government makes sure it can continue to thrive during and after the negotiations.’ May be a transitional arrangement will be required as the trade body says in order to give the buyers a certainty that few holidays are sold a year and a half in advance.
