A TRAVEL influencer has claimed she’s found a “loophole” to beat Europe’s 90-day limit.
Model Honour Spencer, 27, has spent £80,000 turning her Mercedes Sprinter into a home for her and her two cocker spaniels.
Since August, she’s been travelling around many countries in the EU – and doesn’t plan to come home to the UK until next year.
Post-Brexit rules allow British citizens to spend 90 days out of 180 in the bloc’s Schengen free-travel zone.
But Honour, from Cheshire, claims to have found a way to beat the restrictions.
And she said she won’t have to come back to Britain for three months as the rules usually require.
“We need to figure out a way to explore this beautiful world we have,” she said.
“That’s why I looked for a loophole which I hope will work – although we will have to wait and see.”
Honour, who reportedly makes £4,000 a month with her travel and modelling content, has visited France, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, Italy and Hungary – all within the Schengen Zone.
But Romania and Bulgaria are not part of the zone – which is where Honour’s clever loophole comes in.
She’s allowed to stay in Romania for three months without a visa – the amount of time she needs to be out of the Schengen area.
To test her theory, Honour plans to head to Bucharest, the capital of Romania, when her 90 days in the EU are up.
After this three-month period she can continue travelling and spend another 90 days in the Schengen zone.
She said: “Hopefully this loophole will work but we will have to wait and see.
“When I cross into Romania I have to get them to stamp my passport so I have proof that I have left.
“It’s really important because otherwise I could be penalised or be banned for life from the EU apparently.”
Brits heading to Europe next year will have to pay to enter any EU country due to a new visa system being introduced for all UK travellers.
Called the European Travel Information and Authorisation System, Brits will need to have one if travelling for less than 90 days during an 180 day period.
An ETIAS is required if travelling to any European country by plane, boat or car, and is also needed even if only transiting through Europe.
It will cost £5, and any travellers between 18 and 70 years old will have to have one.
They will last three years, although will expire if you have to get a new passport.
