Iceland to join EU - affect on travel

It's still a good while away, but it seems as though Iceland will be joining the European Union.

From a travel perspective, this might :

  • Make flights a bit cheaper - if flight taxes are classed as EU rather than non-EU as now. There are proposals to change UK aviation duty though so don't count on this.
  • Make it a bit more convenient to go to Iceland, currency wise - you will be able to spend Euros.
  • Mean you will no longer be able to enjoy duty free goods when flying to and from Iceland, as now.
