Britons plan to 'spend more' on holidays

Date Posted: 21 Oct 2008

Over half of Britons plan to spend more on holidays in 2009 than they did in the last year, according to new research.

A survey by online travel community TripAdvisor revealed that 56 per cent of people are looking to boost their travel spending and travel to more exotic destinations over the coming year.

Furthermore, the research found that 69 per cent of people would not let unfavourable exchange rates influence their holiday choices.

Commenting on the findings, spokesman Luke Fredberg said: "It's surprising that despite the economic climate, British travellers are planning to spend more on leisure travel in the next year than in the past 12 months."

It is thought that up to 15 million Britons will go off in search of warmer climes this winter, with popular destinations including South Africa and the Caribbean.

According to a recent report in the Telegraph, the Caribbean is an ideal destination, particularly for cruise holidays, with Royal Caribbean Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines and Princess Cruises all serving the area.

What our customers say

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
