Results of Brexit on Travelling Costs in Britain

Brexit would result to various unpleasant effects to Britain because to some extent restrictions may result, closure from certain markets and definitely the pound would end up weakened due to lack of a single market with other trading countries. Therefore, it is very essential for all countries including Britain to put into consideration the impacts of Brexit to people’s economic, personal and professional factors including the resultant negative impacts on travels.
It is incredibly true that Brexit would have greater negative impacts on families willing to travel outside Britain during holidays because the travelling costs would have increased by several pounds. It is true that in the incidence of embarking on a journey, one tends to obtain something to drink or to drink which may be difficult due to increased costs on drinks and food and more so, increasing costs on accommodation thus making the whole process of travelling very expensive. Hence, the life of Britons may become very hard due to low value of the sterling pound that makes them unwilling to make holiday visits.
The bitter truth is that Brexit will risk consumer protection given to Britons which involves free health offered to those with an insurance card of European health and also risking the package for protecting against financial problems of Briton travelers. Due to prolonged downturn of the country’s economy, the sterling pound will automatically weaken against different currencies thus leading to reduced spending overseas contrary to those residing in Britain. Moreover, the act of European countries to enjoy the presence of many routes, lower fares and more airlines will not be the norm anymore and caps will be imposed on mobile charges thus making it hard to access certain destinations easily and travelers lack motivation due to denied benefits they had been getting from the European Union.
It is unbelievably true that the services and goods of the people travelling to other countries will increase in cost due to the weaker pound which could lead to more negative impacts on other benefits given to those going for holidays from Britain. The flights that people had been enjoying prior to withdrawing from the European Union, will be hard to access knowing very well that no single market for Britain with other countries. Therefore, the cheap cost fares that were earlier on brought about by single market for aviation will become difficult thus losing benefits leading to competition with airlines from other countries.
