My Wedding / Holiday in France and Brexit

Should you be worried how it affects you?

For you there are only two issues – let’s look at them separately:

Firstly, if we leave the European Union we will no longer have free movement of people through other EU countries. However, this won’t affect you. You’re a holiday maker, you show your passport at border control the same as you do now, there’s no reason why those passport inspections should take any longer. It will be like visiting any other country outside the European Union.

All countries welcome foreign tourists – they are a great revenue stream and France is the most popular tourist destination in the world!

The second issue is the value of the Pound against the Euro. The value of currencies is all about confidence. Confidence is poor at the moment because there are so many unknowns. If the UK leaves with an acceptable deal, the Pound should rise. If we leave without a deal the Pound will surely fall. So a weak Pound buys less Euros which will make your wedding or group holiday in France more expensive.

But if you have booked your destination wedding or group holiday in France with Domaine de Grolhier, there’s nothing to worry about. For our British customers our prices are in Pounds Sterling. Let us worry about currency fluctuations, you the customer need to know what your wedding or holiday in France is going to cost.
