Britain voting to leave the EU could see British holidaymakers lose benefits they have 'taken for granted' in Europe, a travel website has warned.

Cheapflights.co.uk managing director Andrew Shelton says speculation has begun as to how the Brexit will affect the price of travel to Europe.

He said: "Today’s Referendum result will throw the spotlight onto many benefits British travellers have taken for granted for years. Chief among these will be the European open skies agreements which created the environment for the budget airlines to thrive and which may now have to be renegotiated; a robust UK currency that has made the Eurozone socheap to visit, the end of mobile data roaming charges, free healthcare within the EU and unlimited shopping allowances."

But, he added, the result doesn't mean 'all is lost'.

He added: "The UK travel market is vital to the economy of many European countries and regions. It will be in their interests to seek ways to maintain the status quo. We believe a lot of effort will be made in the coming months and years to ensure the UK cash cow isn’t put out to pasture."

Many UK holidaymakers travelling abroad will also pay more for foreign currency as the pound plunged to its lowest level since 1985 following the EU referendum.

Sterling was down against every single major currency group.

The pound crashed 10% against the dollar overnight to 1.33 US dollars, a low not seen in 30 years.

This could make the UK a more affordable destination for overseas tourists.

The victory for the Leave campaign is unlikely to have any immediate ramifications for UK tourists passing through immigration controls abroad, or for inbound tourism.

A spokesman for Heathrow Airport said: "Anyone travelling through the airport will find it operating normally with no changes to security and immigration."
