Brits travelling abroad ‘more likely to mix with locals’

British travellers are more likely to mingle with locals during their summer holiday abroad

Budget-conscious British travellers are more likely to mingle with locals during their summer holiday abroad this year by buying produce from local markets, Aldi Travel says.

According to Sarah Butler, from Aldi Travel, more holidaymakers who book flights abroad will be keen to work out exactly how much they want to spend during their couple of weeks away.

"People will be mixing with the locals and bringing the costs down that way," she said.

Ms Butler added that self-catering holidays would become "more important" because they usually offered better value-for-money.

A recent Aldi Travel survey showed that 60 percent of Brits think that value-for-money is the "most important factor" when booking a holiday.

A further five percent admitted that they would be prepared to book flights abroad without purchasing travel insurance.

According to recent research from Visit London and VisitBritain, 90 percent of Brits are attempting to cut down on the amount of money they spend.
