Cheap flights to non-eurozone countries remain popular

Large numbers of Brits are travelling to non-eurozone destinations this summer.

Large numbers of Brits are travelling to non-eurozone destinations this summer despite many getting better value for money in the eurozone compared to this time last year.

This is according to figures from the International Currency Exchange (ICE), which revealed that Turkey is this summer’s "key" destination.

Croatia and Bulgaria are also proving a big hit with UK holidaymakers, with both countries’ currencies offering better value against the pound than this time last year.

Joanna Williams, the ICE’s head of marketing, said that eurozone destinations are becoming more popular but suggested that many Brits have been put off by the euro.

"Brits are also capitalising on favourable exchange rates, low day-to-day living costs and Mediterranean temperatures in non-euro hotspots Croatia and Bulgaria," she explained.

The ICE also revealed that a poor exchange rate with the dollar and the oil slick has not put off Brits from visiting the US.

In April, the ICE said that UK holidaymakers were getting "the best value they have seen in a while for the euro".
