Brexit Could Soon Make It Harder on Brits to Travel Within Europe

Thanks to Brexit—Britain's decision in June to leave the European Union—people from the U.K. may soon encounter new headaches when they travel within Europe. 

At the moment, Brits can go anywhere in the E.U. as long as they've got valid passports. But Brexit puts Britain in the "third country" category referring to those who aren't from the place they're traveling to or passing through. 

And as many European countries seek to beef up security following recent terror attacks in France, Belgium, and elsewhere, the smart money is on those nations subjecting third-country travelers to a visa application process.

On the other side of the Atlantic, meanwhile, Brexit has made traveling from the U.S. to the U.K. substantially easier. Airfares are the lowest they've been in three years, and the exchange rate is more favorable to the dollar vis-a-vis the pound than it's been since the days when Margaret Thatcher was in office.
