More Brits holiday in Thailand to make money go further

Thailand is becoming an increasingly popular destination among Brits looking to make their money go further, trivago has said.

Sian Williams, the hotel portal’s UK country manager, said that the far eastern country has become more popular because accommodation is so cheap.

"Thailand is a big destination for Brits at the moment because hotels all they have to do is pay for the airfare and once they are there, hotels and everything else is very cheap," she said.

Ms Williams added that, by way of comparison, the eurozone is more expensive because of higher accommodation costs, while sightseeing and eating and drinking out are both pricey compared to non-eurozone countries.

Recent research from trivago revealed that Paris and Rome are the most popular destinations for British travellers this Easter, with average hotel prices amounting to £120 and £109 respectively.

However, Skyscanner recently advised travellers not to automatically rule out the eurozone, because many non-euro currencies have also strengthened against the pound. Read more here: Don’t Rule Out The Eurozone: Travel Advice
