The Brexit effect on travel

So how does Britain’s decision to leave the EU impact us travelers. In the short-term really it just makes Britain a cheaper destination especially for Americans as the Pound took a beating yesterday, dropping it’s lowest level since 1985. Pretty much the UK just went on a flash summer sale….and if the Pound continues to tumble, perhaps as Scotland starts to ramp up talk of now leaving Britain, it could get even cheaper.

Longer-term though flights between the UK and the rest of Europe could jump up dramatically as the UK is removed from Europe’s open skies agreement and immigration lines at British airports and points of entry could get slammed as EU passport holders will no longer be able to use the same passport lines as British citizens, and if Scotland leaves Britain and decided to rejoin the EU….there may no longer even be an open border into Scotland.
