People planning to travel abroad after the end of March will be required to have six months left on their passport in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The edit comes in a government notice to the travel industry over passport validity changes should the UK fall out of the European Union without a deal on October 31st.

The key call to action is for customers to visit the HM Passport Office online passport checker on the government’s GOV.UK website to see if they are affected and renew their passport early if necessary.

For example, UK residents wanting to travel on November 1st – the day after the UK is due to leave the EU if there is no deal – must have a passport issued on or after March 1, 2010.

Spain – Roses Costa Brava

Roses is located in one of the most beautiful regions of Spain, Costa Brava, just over the French border.  The area has an abundance of scenic areas, quaint coastal villages and historical cities.  Roses is a fairly quiet, relaxed resort, retaining much of it’s original charm without the brashness of other resorts on this part of the Spanish Coast.  With superb sandy beaches that sweep around the large impressive bay, the backdrop of the Pyrenees and the Crev Cap peninsula, Roses makes the perfect location for a wonderful holiday.
