Brexit means brexit.

(as a disclaimer I am against the idea of brexit)

Tbh, I don't think there will be much change. I did wonder about this as my brother lives in Norway and does something similar (Check out anyexcusetoride). However, because the business is registered over in Norway I assume it shouldn't make a difference. I'd imagine it'd be the same in France / Wherever (Just guessing here though)

Fear not dude we have a fully French registered subsidiary company, we are also covered by the Travel Vault for Financial Failure Protection, meaning if the very worst did happen and the business was in anyway majorly effected every single client's money is 100% safe and will be refunded.

We also have an Italian branch for our Finale Ligure and Aosta holidays, all this comes at a big cost but it protects the business and our clients and keeps the two wheels spinning.

Also keep your eye on the GBP - EUR exchange rate, it's the highest it has been in two months at current, support for the PM from the DUP has boosted it and we think it will creep up even more before the vote on the 29th March with no deal looking unlikely. However, it is still possible. It could be worth buying 50% of your Euro's for your trip soon to protect against a drop if the worst happens. Or risk it and maybe get an even better rate after the 29th March.

If you have any questions ask on here or drop us an email info@mtbbeds.com and we will try to answer you asap.

Its worth setting up a Transferwise bank account and adding money to the account when the rate is good (it sets up virtual bank accounts in dollars, euros, etc)..ive been doing this for my forthcoming US/Vegas bike trip and also some Euros as no doubt Ill be back in Morzine for the summer....rate is ok at the mo but could either get a lot better or worse..depending on how much May cocks things up Smile

If you can't wait to ride enduro or downhill before summer comes to your country come to Gran Canaria, our "miniature continent", direct flights from Europe in 3-4 hours flight. Gran Canaria in volcanic origin island, its highest mountain is 1958 meters above sea level and there around are some trails that go down in different technical levels. we can not say its for beginner because a beginner can have some struggling riding journeys. Media temperature of the year is around 23-24 degrees Celsius and average rain can be four weeks in a year (it doesn't mean in the hole Island). If you continue interested to ride in the island we live and work i leave you our links @DhGuideCanarias for social media and www.downhilldays.com our webpage.

cheers
