Flights to Mexico expected to be in demand from Britain

More people could book flights to Mexico after the country’s coastal resorts were recommended by the International Currency Exchange (ICE).

With the Mexican peso remaining stable against the pound, it is predicted that UK holidaymakers could be tempted to head across the Atlantic as they embark on their next holiday.

The ICE said that Mexico is a favourite with backpackers, with the pound currently 9.75 percent stronger against the peso than it was this time last year.

Commenting, ICE head of marketing Andrew Hamilton said: "We expect to see more UK travellers heading to a variety of long-haul destinations over the winter as they look for good value and winter sun."

Mr Hamilton went on to say that flights to Japan were also proving popular, with orders for the Yen up 71 percent compared to the same time last year, while sales of the New Zealand and Hong Kong dollar have also increased.

Earlier this year, the ICE revealed that more Brits placed orders for the Korean Won and Japanese Yen than ever before.
