While we anticipate some volatility in the markets as the world adjusts to yesterday’s decision of UK voters to leave the European Union, we do not anticipate any short-term impact to our businesses in the region as travelers will continue to move between the UK and the EU as freely today as they were yesterday.
Our teams in the region have been closely monitoring developments as the UK prepared to vote on this important matter. While we can’t be certain exactly how the UK’s future relationship with the European Union may impact our operations, our team excels at being prepared, and our European businesses have proven resilient through every type of economic cycle.
As the UK enters a new transition period to chart its path forward, we are working with ABTA and other travel and tourism partners to ensure the needs and concerns of our industry are addressed as any new regulations and trade deals are negotiated.
Despite any changes, we believe there will always be a need and desire for people to travel, we will continue in our mission to welcome people to experience travel the way they want.
