Customs Practice for Europe post-Brexit

Deon Bothma2022-05-10 15:20:55

We have travelled to Europe with our tandem a number of times over the last decade.  We simply put in on the car and crossed via ferry or the tunnel.  Nobody was interested.  Due to Covid, we have had to cancel everything over the last two years. We are planning a trip to France in June 2022.  Has there been any change in how customs treat the tandem?

Hi Deon - no change as far as I can see.  We have used the tunnel several times since covid broke with no issues apart from paperwork needing completion. We're travelling end June and mid august with tandem on the roof as usual.

Thank you.  We are looking forward to our first big trip since 2019.  Would hate for it to be ruined by my bad planning.
