More Brits are choosing to take all-inclusive holidays to Europe in an attempt to keep costs down while travelling in the eurozone, according to ABTA – The Travel Association.
Sean Tipton, an ABTA spokesperson, said all-inclusive holidays have "become incredibly popular" in Europe, with one of its members reporting a 50 percent increase in demand.
"It doesn’t matter what the exchange rate is, you are going to spend hardly anything at all once you get there" he commented.
Mr Tipton added that, in Spain and Greece in particular, accommodation owners are trying to keep prices down despite the unfavourable exchange rate, which spells good news for people thinking of booking flights to either country.
Thomas Cook’s recently-published cost of living survey revealed that prices in destinations such as mainland Spain, Majorca and Cyprus remain cheaper than the UK.
The cheapest destination was revealed to be Goa, where the cost of a cup of coffee is more than ten times cheaper than in the UK.
