    Many people are already booking their travel plans for 2019, and have questions about what might happen after 29 March 2019 when the UK leaves the European Union (EU).

    The political process is still ongoing and we don't yet know the final outcome, however there have been some reassurances recently around flights and visas and these are reflected in these frequently asked questions.

What our clients say

"Thank you for your patience and using your considerable knowledge on our behalf.  We were absolutely delighted with the outcome and are singing your praises!"


Moira McGlinchey, Edinburgh

 "I would have no hesitation in recommending Connoisseur to anyone contemplating a cruise - indeed we were recommended by people we met on another cruise on the Boudicca to use your services and we are very glad we did!"


I have been using Connoisseur Travel for many years and would never contemplate using any other Agency. They have booked many types of holiday for me - not only cruises and I would most definitely recommend them to others. Their staff attitude and attention is "par excellence" and I've always been made to feel as if I am a valued customer. Any problems (and there have been very few and never of Connoisseur's making) are always addressed quickly and efficiently to my entire satisfaction. I travel many times per year and shall continue to do so - continuing to use Connoisseur as my Agent.

Connoisseur Travel in Edinburgh are delighted to donate £540 to the RNLI in Kinghorn Fife.  The money was raised in conjunction with VIKING CRUISES, offering Connoisseur’s clients the chance to visit their cruise ships.  They enjoyed a tour of the ship with lunch on board in Rosyth and Invergordon in the summer and we would like to ‘thank them’ for their generosity. 
The RNLI in Kinghorn cover Dalgety Bay to Leven and Silverknowes to Aberlady and have had over 64 ‘call-outs’ this year.  The RNLI is run by Volunteers and is a registered charity.
