Portugal #Brelcomes You


Though Brexit is official, in the world of travel we know that friendships and the opportunities for great family holidays are much stronger than borders. In fact, Visit Portugal wants to remind us of just that.

The tourist board’s new campaign #Brelcome addresses its UK visitors with a simple message; Portugal will never leave you. Officially, their position remains the same as all other EU countries - you can also be assured that until the end of the transition period (31st December 2020), all UK visitors to EU countries will continue to enjoy freedom of movement. However, we love seeing that Portugal are being proactive in their messaging to the UK market.

So, for families wanting to try surfing on the Alentejo Coast, swim alongside wild dolphins in Madeira, or kayak across crater lakes in the Azores - take a look at our family holidays to see why Portugal is ready to Brelcome you with open arms!
