Business travelers ‘apprehensive’ about Brexit


New research reveals business travelers are feeling more uneasy about Brexit than they did before the referendum.

A survey of 501 UK-based business travellers carried out by business consortium the DCC Forum found more than a third (36 per cent) are apprehensive about the UK’s exit from the EU on 29 March 2019, an increase of more than 10 per cent since before the 2016 vote.

Furthermore, only 8 per cent of business travelers said they have no worries about travelling to Europe after Brexit.

The biggest post-Brexit worry for 39 per cent of those polled is completing work visa applications ahead of traveling to Europe, a 15 per cent increase since May 2016. This fear is felt most by those in the human resources sector, with more than half (57 per cent) of HR professionals saying they’re most concern by visa issues.
