UK tour operator Brexit lobby group issues no-deal warning


A lobby group representing tour operators that employ UK staff to work in EU resorts and destinations has warned of dire consequences if the UK does not secure a Brexit deal.

The Seasonal Businesses in Travel lobby group that was established in August 2017 with nine members and now has 200, has produced a report estimating the impact of a no-deal Brexit.

Zenith Holidays director Katie Waddington, a founder of SBIT, told the Elman Wall Directors Summit, that some types of holiday, like chalet skiing, could become unaffordable except for the very wealthy.

“Operators will have to become a bit more creative with what they offer,” she said. “Brexit could affect any companies with overseas staff. Our aim is to raise awareness of the issues.”
