Brexit FAQs

Brexit FAQs


At DFDS, it’s business as usual, despite Brexit. You can rest assured that your ferry crossing will go smoothly and that you can book your upcoming trips with confidence.

The UK has now entered a transition period until 31 December at the earliest. During this period nothing will change and you will still be able to travel to Europe as you always have done.

In summary, throughout 2020:

  • Your passport will still be valid
  • Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will still be valid
  • You won’t need to apply for a visa
  • You don’t need to apply for an International Driving Permit
  • Pet travel regulations remain the same
  • Mobile phone roaming will continue to be free throughout the EU

So don’t let Brexit scupper your holiday plans. Book now and travel with confidence with DFDS.

International Driving License

In the event of a No Deal driving licences may no longer be valid by themselves, and an International Driving Permit (IDP) may be necessary.

Anyone travelling immediately before or after March 29th, should consider obtaining the relevant IDP before travelling, as a precaution. The cost of an IDP is £5.50 and can be made via the Post Office.
