A no-deal Brexit WON't affect Brits' Spanish hols says country's tourism minister, as country draws up contingency plan with UK tour operators

To combat this, the country’s tourism minister has met with UK tour operators to draw up a contingency plan so that UK citizens can head to Spain on holiday with the ease they do now – even in the event of a no-deal.

The Independent reports that Politician Reyes Maroto has met with travel companies such as Thomas Cook to draw up plans for what will happen in the event of a no-deal with the EU.

A quarter of Spain’s visitors each year are from the UK – around 18million – so it’s in the country’s best interests to strike up a favourable proposal.

Ms Maroto said: “British tourists need to know that Spain next year will still be an attractive destination.

“We are outlining a list of measures, the most important of which are to have laws and regulations in place that will allow us to respond quickly to any problems that can come up with the movement of goods and people at the border.”

She added that Brexit is a “top priority” for the Spanish government and that they wish to find “a solution for any problems that might crop [up]”.

The EU previously threatened to ground all UK flights after Brexit, which could cause misery for British holidaymakers.

Millions of Brits could see their holidays cancelled next year as a result.

Without an emergency Plan B, thousands of flights from the UK to Europe could be cancelled if talks between our government and Michael Barnier’s team collapse before March 29, 2019.

Ryanair has also warned that it can't guarantee flights booked after the Brexit deadline will happen.

The airline has been putting a "Brexit clause" into its ticket sales for summer 2019.

The clause – that will appear on all tickets after this September – will warn customers that it will not be valid if there has been no aviation agreement between Britain and the EU post-Brexit.

It will say: "This flight is subject to the regulatory environment allowing the flight to take place.”

Sun Online Travel previously revealed that Brits might have to pay £6 for a visa to travel to EU countries after Brexit.
