Passports – Ive taken this from the Government website:
You may need to renew your British passport earlier if you’re travelling after 12 April and there’s no deal.
On the day you travel, you’ll need your passport to both:
· have at least 6 months left
· be less than 10 years old (even if it has 6 months or more left)
Again from govt website
Healthcare: check you’re covered
Whether there’s a deal or not, you should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad.
If there’s a deal, you’ll continue to get state-provided healthcare in the EU if you have a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) card. The scheme also covers Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
If there’s no deal, your EHIC card may not be valid.
It’s particularly important you get travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not.
I would suggest you get an EHIC card if you don’t already have one – so you need to do that NOW!
Make sure your policy covers you for scuba – and if it does that the limits are enough for your level of diving. Many wont cover you past a certain depth - which may be less than your qualification.
Otherwise theres 2 options
Take out a specific travel insurance which allows your level of diving
Take out a “normal” travel insurance and then take out a “top up” policy.
This year, Ive opted for the latter as it worked out cheaper – my dive insurance is through DiveMaster.
