People planning to travel abroad after the end of January 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 January 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 August 1, 2010.

Spain – Santa Susanna

Santa Susanna is an attractive resort situated on the Costa Maresme in Catalonia.  Situated on a coastal strip often mistaken for the Costa Brava, Santa Susanna is a great holiday location, close to the city of Barcelona and with all of the wonderful beaches, bays and facilities of the Costa Brava nearby.  The laid back town is set between the glittering Mediterranean Sea and the mountainous wooded backdrop of the Massif Montenegre.  In medieval times Santa Susanna used to belong to its neighbouring town of Castillo de Palafolls, only becoming a town in its right in 1842.  Its narrow cobbled streets still retain a medieval charm, and there are many ancient buildings and monuments, which each tell a tale.  There is a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars to frequent when wandering around this lovely resort.
