More Brits booking flights to Hungary and Israel

Growing numbers of holidaymakers are booking flights to Hungary and Israel to escape the eurozone

Growing numbers of holidaymakers are booking flights to Hungary and Israel to escape the eurozone, new figures have revealed.

A report from foreign exchange company Travelex has highlighted the increasingly popular trend of booking flights to the ‘neuro-zone’, or new eurozone, in a bid to reduce the cost of people’s summer holidays.

While Turkey emerged as the most popular holiday destination outside of the eurozone, it was also revealed that demand for Hungarian currency has doubled during the past two months, while Israel made the Travelex Destination Index for the first time.

Commenting on the findings, a Travelex statement said: "Rather than forking out a budget busting £47 for a three course meal for two in France, UK holiday makers are opting to pay 64 percent less at £17 in sun-drenched Turkey."

The currency specialist added that the introduction of cheap flights to Bodrum from a number of UK regional airports had helped boost demand to Turkish resorts.

A separate Travelex survey recently suggested that Brits are becoming more inclined to book a last-minute holiday deal in order to save money.
