Important Note

At the time of writing there is considerable uncertainty regarding the state of European travel that will occur post Brexit. ICC assumes no liability for any loss that may be incurred due to any delay or unforeseen circumstances. It is, as always, the responsibility of individual members to ensure that they have appropriate travel insurance to cover health (of particular importance as the EHIC reciprocity arrangements will cease in the event of a “no deal” Brexit), delay, cancelation or any other issues arising. Those driving may also need to obtain European driving permits and you will need at least 6 months left on your passport – so check and renew if necessary.
