Who we are

SBIT (Seasonal Businesses in Travel) is a unique and diverse group of over 200 outbound British travel and service companies operating throughout the summer and winter holiday seasons. Most are SMEs and all are British businesses.

Our Aim

Our aim is to ensure that the (future) relationship between the EU nations and the UK fosters and aims to grow the contribution British outbound travel companies make to the economies of both the UK and the EU nations by protecting the ability of British workers to temporarily work across the EU nations supporting the seasonal travel industry.

How ?

  • By ensuring that all those involved in negotiations in the UK and the EU are fully aware of the significant benefits, both cultural and economic, of UK citizens being able to temporarily work in EU nations supporting the seasonal travel industry.
  • By lobbying to ensure that the mechanisms necessary for UK citizens to work seasonally across EU nations are as frictionless and straightforward as possible thereby protecting the jobs and economic contributions of the thousands of UK citizens employed in this sector of the UK travel industry.
  • By ensuring members are kept up to date with the fast evolving and changing regulatory requirements affecting their businesses as the UK’s new relationship with the EU is negotiated.
  • Facilitate industry-wide practical action and support for British businesses in their efforts to understand the emerging regulatory frameworks in European countries and so remain compliant in all areas.
