  1. It's a 5 and a half year transition. 25% of the EU fishing rights in UK waters will be transferred to UK fishermen in the transition period.
  2. You have no right to refund. Most hotel chains will allow a refund now and most independent hotels will alow you to reschedule free of charge. Ignore the travel agent and contact the hotel directly to see what your options are. We have had to cancel or reschedule half of our hotel bookings this year but it has not cost us a penny but all our bookings have been done on the hotels or chains website.
  3. UK is now a listed country according to a UK government site and a dog will only need the rabies vaccination.
  4. The American/ Australian/ NZ yachties have very rarely been able to get a visa and I don't think UK caravanners will be treated any better. Second home owners in Spain and Portugal and yachties in Greece may be more lucky. You will need another certificate from Morocco since they are only valid for 10 days for entry to the EU. From Morocco you probably need rabies tithers as well. Arrange those before you leave home since it takes 90 days from a positive test before you can enter EU and not all dogs pass the first time
  5. You don't need a rabies certificate but do need proof of rabies jabs, The health certificate is valid for 4 months but unless you are a EU citizen you can only stay for 90 days in any 180 in the Schengen area anyway.
  6. I have read the regulations at the link you provided and can't find any legal restrictions on travel in England. Can you please show where it says there are any legal restrictions on travel?
  7. Why don't you just say that anyone in England can legally travel to anywhere in England? The are travel guidance but no travel restrictions .
  8. The caravan club will have sites open during the lockdown just as they did during the first lockdown where needed for work or for fulltimers that don't have a home. As of lunchtime yesterday they had not decided which sites would be open but I assume they have done that now. I would expect the camping club to have sites open as well.
  9. Judging from posts on the net that's a surprisingly common opinion. Anywhere else it's considered a respiratory decease and masks has been mandatory in most European countries for months. Got a welcome letter from a CL we're going to and they recommended gloves when emptying the cassette and when putting the garbage in the bin. They also suggest wearing gloves when inputting the PIN code for the gate! Seen a lot of caravanners empty the cassette not one of them have been wearing gloves and I never seen anyone using gloves to input a PIN code! Will be a bit of a culture shock to
  10. No idea but if I've been locked out from a seasonal pitch I would not wait to be offered but would ask for a full refund for the time I was locked out.
  11. Don't think they can but enforcement of the quarantine is only by phone anyway. They will call you and ask where you are...
  12. Ours is a house in a village up in the mountain. Cost little to buy and no cost when we are not using it. When we are using it the costs are for firewood for heating and a bit for electric. We are also supposed to pay a water bill but so far they have not sent us one. Food is a lot cheaper than in the UK.
  13. We have done all that and a lot more but we still go to Spain a few times a year. Usually driving down without the van since we have a house in Spain. In the future we will be flying long distance, take a few cruises and go to Spain!
  14. I expect there will be another transition period but called something else but I agree it's something that needs to be considered just in case. Until UK becomes a so called listed country there needs to be a rabies test and that test can take many months and it's a good idea to start it now if travelling after the new year. We have not bothered since we will be going down before Christmas.
  15. With the towing test you can do a shunt forward for quite a long distance. I did the test earlier this year and decided before the test that unless the first part of the reverse is perfect I would take a shunt as far forward as I could since reversing straight back is for me the easiest! I've been towing since I was 18 and I still did do that shunt since I was not entirely certain where the cones where on the other side.
