According to Gabriele Milani, the national director of FTO (Organised Tourism Federation) a no deal exit from the bloc will be a concern for the Italian travel agencies along with the British and Italian tourist.
He went on saying that they should be prepared for any kind of scenarios and consider the possible impacts for those who travel.There would be a Brexit extension beyond Friday and he hoped that common sense would prevail.
Between Italy and the UK more than seven million people travel where more than five million Britons arrive in Ital and two million Italians head for the UK.
Milani is waiting to find that a definitive agreement with appropriate timing will be planned to a non-traumatic exit.Despite being voted by the people and considering the evolving situation, he could not exclude reassessing Brexit.
Milani went on further warning that after Brexit the EU citizens will not be permissible to access health care in the UK with their European health insurance cared and companies that provide phone services will no longer be bound by EU roaming rules when they operate in the UK.
However, travelling on the EU airline for the British holidaymakers will not change and their passengers’ rights will be guaranteed for the flights from a UK to a EU airport and vice versa.
Considering the flights offered by the non-EU companies, only the rights for the routes from a European airport to the UK will remain valid but not vice versa.
The Home Office has warned the British passport holders to check their passports before travelling in the case that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
The issued warning reads as ‘After 12 April 2019: 1. You should have at least 6 months left on your passport from your date of arrival. This applies to adult and child passports. If you renewed a passport before it expired, up to nine extra months may have been added to your new passport’s expiry date.
Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months that should be remaining for travel to most countries in Europe.The new rules will apply to passports issued by the UK, Gibraltar, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey.
