EU gives final confirmation UK visitors won’t need a visa after Brexit


On Thursday 4 April, the European Parliament approved legal changes to ensure that UK citizens will not need a visa to travel to the EU for short stays after Brexit – even in the event of a no-deal exit.

The European Commission announced in November its intention that, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK citizens will still be able to travel to the EU for up to 90 days within a 180-day period without needing a visa.

Today’s vote of the full European Parliament, in Brussels, is the last stage in approving the necessary legislation.

Mark Tanzer, Chief Executive of ABTA – The Travel Association said:

“Today’s vote provides absolute certainty that UK holidaymakers and business travellers will be able to travel visa-free to Europe, deal or no deal.

“It follows on from the confirmation a few weeks ago that flights will continue to operate, even in a no deal. This means that two of the most important concerns for UK tourists and business travellers visiting the EU have been addressed and will provide a further boost to confidence about travel to the EU after Brexit.

“While it is encouraging that these issues have been addressed, securing a deal is very much the preferred outcome, and we encourage parliamentarians to explore all options to avoid a no-deal.

“With the ongoing uncertainty about how and when the UK will leave the EU, it is difficult for travel businesses to predict what will happen, so it is important Members continue to plan and prepare for any eventuality.”

ABTA has updated its Brexit contingency planning guidance for Members to reflect the latest developments, the document is available in ABTA’s MemberZone – abta.com/Member-Zone.

ABTA is providing advice to travellers about visiting the EU after Brexit, with the latest information available at abta.com/Brexit

Spring/Easter breaks in Sardinia

Sardinia is just a 2 hour flight from the UK yet not a mainstream Mediterranean destination but a sophisticated Italian island, west of mainland Italy and south of Corsica. With over 1,800km of unspoilt coastline, it is renowned for beautiful beaches, turquoise sea and fascinating rock formations. Yet being the second largest Mediterranean island, it has so much more to offer with an interesting history, wild mountainous interior, vibrant towns with local traditions and colourful festivals.  The people are warm and friendly and enjoying themselves is a way of life.

Sardinia has a pleasant 6 month summer, hot and dry from May to October but often with a breeze due to its location in the centre of the Mediterranean. The winter months are mild with a good amount of sunshine, particularly in March and April when all the flowers are out and it can be hot during the daytime and cooler in the evenings.

For a Spring/Easter Break, we would recommend:

Villa las Tronas Hotel & Spa in Alghero is situated in a unique location on its own rocky promontory jutting out into the sea with uninterrupted views from  over the Gulf of Alghero. Formerly an Italian royal residence, this small, elegant hotel has 24 guest rooms and suites, all individually designed with antique furniture, some with large balconies and sea views. The hotel is surrounded by Mediterranean style gardens and there is an outdoor seawater swimming pool situated on rocky terraces with sunbeds overlooking the sea. The hotel retains some original features and benefits from an elegant bar and excellent restaurant, for a relaxed Italian breakfast and gourmet candlelit dinner with panoramic views and sunsets across the bay to Capo Caccia. The Spa features an impressive Roman style indoor heated seawater pool with hydro massage jets, Turkish bath, sauna, Technogym and health and beauty suite with massages and wellness treatments available on request.
Just a short walk along the promenade (approximately 1km) brings you to the old walled town of Alghero with an interesting history to discover and a multitude of shops, café bars, pizzerias and restaurants tucked away in the cobbled alleys. On the other side of the old town are the port, marina and long white sandy beach, which stretches all the way out to Fertilia, approximately 5km.
Prices with Just Sardinia 01202 484858 www.justsardinia.co.uk  from £619pp based on 2 sharing a Sea View room for 5 nights with b&b or over Easter £840pp (excluding flights and airport transfers: flights to Alghero from £43pp but over Easter from £191pp).

If you can’t afford a trip to Tahiti, make Sardinia your next holiday!


By Hayley Lewis for Metro.co.uk,
https://metro.co.uk/2019/01/19/if-you-cant-afford-a-trip-to-tahiti-make-sardinia-your-next-holiday-7782836/?ito=cbshare

I’m a big fan of the beach. Let’s face it, who isn’t? I dream of the kind with crystal clear water, white sand and ideally, a cocktail bar. I’ve spent many an hour lusting over pictures of Tahiti on Instagram, but sadly have been unable to afford a trip to the tropical paradise. However, less than a three hour flight from the UK, there are beaches just like those of Tahiti, and a holiday here costs a fraction of the price tag. I’m talking about Sardinia. Sardinia is known for having the best beaches in Italy, and it really does live up to its reputation. Whether you visit the north, south, east or west of the island, you can find tropical looking beaches. One beach is even nicknamed ‘Little Tahiti’.

It’s a bigger island than you might expect, so if you want to see more than one place, it’s best to hire a car. We landed in Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, picked up a rental car and headed south. We aimed to do a loop of the island, exploring the best beaches and enjoying all that Sardinia has to offer. First on the itinerary was the small town of Sant’Antioco, located on an island of the same name (Isola di Sant’Antioco). Just like Tahiti, Sardinia has a number of small islands, and it is here that some of the best beaches can be found. A special feature of Isola di Sant’Antioco is easily noticeable as you drive over the mile-long causeway that connects the island to the mainland: flamingos. Hundreds of pink flamingos nest in the pond of Santa Caterina, so make sure you stop for a look at these tropical birds. Certainly not what I was expecting to see on an Italian island!

After exploring a few of the island’s beaches we headed north, on the incredibly scenic drive to Capo Mannu. This is Sardinia’s version of Teahupoʻo, Tahiti’s famous surf break. Capo Mannu offers some of Italy’s best surfing and is a popular destination for surfers from all over Europe. There is a surf school here so you can take a lesson, or for the pros, you can hire a board.

A big part of Tahitian cuisine is fish, and this is also true of Sardinia. Our next stop was the fishing town of Bosa. As well as fish aplenty, this town has two other special features; an impressive castle on a hill and lovely multicoloured houses. We spent an afternoon wandering the cobbled streets and admiring the attractive palazzos, before moving onto our hotel for the night, in nearby Tresnuraghes. The name Tresnuraghes means three nuraghes. I had no idea what a nuraghe was before arriving here, but soon found that Sardinia is full of them. These fortress-like structures were built during the bronze age and are unlike any other ruins found across the globe. As you might have guessed, Tresnuraghes had three such structures of which only a trace of one remains. It is a charming little town and we spent a lovely evening at Maison Tresnuraghes, two old houses that have been restored into a hotel around a large garden, with beautiful views of the coast from the roof terrace.

One of the most popular towns in Sardinia is Alghero, in the north east of the island. Here you will find paella as well as pasta, as the town has a heavy Catalan influence, in fact Catalan is the co-official language. This stems from the middle ages, when Catalans conquered Alghero, and Sardinia was part of the Crown of Aragon. Many of the town’s residents have Catalan ancestors. It’s no secret that hotels in Tahiti are pretty pricey, so in comparison, staying at a luxury hotel in Sardinia seems relatively cheap. We treated ourselves to a few nights at the fabulous Villa Las Tronas – a hotel fit for royalty – in fact, it was once the residence of the Italian royal family.

Now it was really time to explore those beaches! We headed to the east coast and travelled our way south, beach-by-beach. First stop was Cala Suaraccia. This is such a tropical looking beach, even though it was cloudy when we visited, the water was still a vibrant blue and the beach looks out over a small mountain immediately conjuring images of Bora Bora. Then it was on to previously mentioned ‘Little Tahiti’ otherwise known as Cala Bradinchi. A small sheltered bay in the north east of the island, I could immediately see where it had gained its nickname. This was followed by San Teodoro, which is set in front of a lagoon and also happens to be home to even more flamingos. After an incredible selection of beaches, we arrived at our hotel for the night. Cala Gonone is a destination in itself, but many people come here to explore the Gulf of Orosei and the gorgeous Cala Goloritze. This beach is famed for its cliff backdrop, clear waters and rugged beauty. It is actually quite challenging to reach Cala Goloritze and there are two options if you wish to visit. The first is a 90-minute hike through the mountains and then down some stairs to the beach, the second is by taking a boat trip from Cala Gonone and swimming to shore. We opted for the latter. Prima Sardegna offers daily boat trips along the coast and we hopped aboard ready to explore this picturesque stretch of coastline. It didn’t disappoint, the water here is a bright aquamarine and incredibly clear. We stopped off at a number of different beaches for a quick swim and a bit of relaxation, before moving onto the next beach. Before returning to Cala Gonone we stopped at the Bue Marino Grotto, one of the many caves along this coastline. For a small entrance fee, a guide will take you around 1km inside the cave, through different ‘rooms’ containing striking stalactites and stalagmites. Our final destination was Cala Sinzias. Wow. We really did save the best for last. This beach was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Endless white sand, lined with eucalyptus trees, with only a handful of people and the most incredible turquoise water. It was like a swimming pool. I just couldn’t believe that this was in Europe and not the South Pacific or the Caribbean. At the entrance is a beach club, so you can enjoy a cocktail while relaxing on a sun lounger in this stunning paradise. Cala Sinzias along with many other beaches confirmed for me that Sardinia is the perfect alternative holiday for those wanting to visit Tahiti. Plus there is the added benefit of pizza!
