Post-Brexit travel questions

So, this article was published today and I'm pretty confused.

Brexit: UK travellers to France and Spain may need proof of accommodation

I'm planning to do the Camino Frances next spring, and unfortunately, the days of jumping on a plane into Europe with no worries has gone, it seems, for us British europhiles.

Will I need a short-stay visa for Spain? Are there any extra fees? How do I show proof of accommodation when I'm moving everyday to places you can't book? My head is spinning and I'm probably over thinking.

As a Brit you're allowed to stay a maximum of 90 days in any 180 day period, with the 180 days 'rolling'. No visa required.

I raised the question about accommodation in another thread, the fact is we're not going to know how or even if a Camino would work until Spain clarifies the rules. The speculation in the UK press spoke about what the requirements 'may' be, nothings been officially announced. You're also talking about next spring, who knows what the situation will be by then, could all be back to normal.

Welcome the world of citizens outside the Schengen Area, I will talk about experience as a Brazilian to enter Spain.
We do not need a visa. Stay in the Schengen Area for 90 days
Exit ticket from Espaço.Schengen.
Document justifying the existence of a place to host. It can be site Booking, AirBnb, does not even need to have been paid.
I am going on my way in September 2021, I have an accommodation reservation in Pamplona, SJPdP and Roncesvalles. It is enough to meet this requirement.

Only with the reservation in Pamplona (train ticket Madrid - Pamplona), it would be part of my itinerary. Meeting the conditions for entry into Spain.

This is my experience, as I am going to Spain ..... Hug
