I think you guys are in fantasy land if you all think leaving the EU will make travelling around Europe better, or even that we’ll have the same benefits as what an EU member has. The EU will not allow us to maintain such benefits on principle as that’s the whole point of being a member. If you can gain those benefits without having to be a member then what the whole point of membership. Absolute fantasy land

If I was talking about the economy, politics, immigration etc. Then yes I agree there are better groups to discuss. But Brexit will have an impact upon how we travel around Europe. So this is relevant to this group.

Brexit throws up many uncertainties such as wether we’ll need an International Driving license which is a serious possibility, as well as many other compromises. I’ve yet to find a single positive outcome when it comes to European travelling. Only negatives.

It’s not called an International Driving Liscence. It’s called an IDP, International Driving Permit.
Even Italy, Spain, Portugal requires one in certain circumstances as well as many East European Countries. Also Iceland.

Fantasy land is thinking the EU will adopt a hostile stance. As for driving it will make little if any difference. Why not just wait and see rather than get in a tizzy. As James Bell comments Que Serra Serra.

@CooperSmith
Why continue?
Your own fear and opinion of what you think the future holds for Brits and European travel due to Brexit is not shared in this thread from what I can see.
The vote was transparent and caught the government out too.
Within reason the democratic decision has been accepted and seems that your audince here feel (to quote @james bell ) que sera sera

You go on about Travel Benefits we will lose.
So what exactly are these benefits?
Hard facts please, NO Remoaner fantasies.

I show my Passport, pass through Customs when crossing the Channel. Is that going to change?

I pay for Travel/Health Insurance as the E111 is of dubious benefit in some if not many EU countries and certainly doesn’t cover re-patriation costs. Insurance for the vehicle is a legal requirement and Breakdown and expenses cover is sensible.

So instead of spouting off give some facts.

It's known as propoganda. Typical political weapon.

Exactly - Propaganda - NOT Facts.
It could happen, we could have World War III after the USA invade N.Korea, VW could cut the Price of the California by 50%, Jeremy Corbin and Teresa May could be accused of Historical Sex Crimes.

It’s not propaganda it’s factual. But if you disagree then please give me an example of where it’s propaganda?

Why not be optimistic, instead of pessimistic..... Only a thought.
There will clearly be winners and losers post Brexit, much as there have been winners and losers following the financial crisis. But the confusion over what Brexit will mean inspires little confidence or optimism.

They are ALL possibilities, put out by 1 organisation. They are NOT Facts because NOTHING has been negotiated yet so no one knows what the possible effects will be. All I do know is I will still have to show my Passport, go through Customs and buy Travel Insurance and pay Tolls.
If I go outside the Shenzhen Area then I will have to show my Passport again and go through Customs again. Oh, I have to do that now.
