Actual travel, too, could soon degrade. The main argument behind the Leave campaign was that there was to be an imposition on the free movement of people between EU states. Once this comes in, transitioning between the UK and other European countries will potentially become a lot more arduous. No more popping onto the Eurostar to Paris; farewell, quick changeovers at Heathrow. Britain’s exit could also affect current open-skies treaties, which means budget airlines that connect the UK to other countries may have to raise their prices. (Ryanair, one of the leading budget airlines in the UK, dropped its prices immediately after the referendum.)
As a British man talking to a whole country of potential tourists who want to visit my troubled little island, here is what I recommend. Go to London. On a normal day it is unfathomably expensive, but now’s your chance to shop on Oxford St, eat at Borough Market, and watch football at a local pub while knocking back pints for roughly $5, a real bargain. Take a flight (the trains are still expensive) to Scotland and hike the Highlands. Hell, even go and tromp around Trump’s golf course, if that’s your thing. Go to Stonehenge, visit the ancient Roman spas at Bath, or check out Manchester, the home of British music.
