British holidaymakers looking for guaranteed sunshine.

According to ABTA, the Travel Association two million British holidaymakers headed overseas for the first weekend of the summer holidays for the majority of English schools (20-23 July). The most popular destinations are Spain and Greece which suggests that savvy Brits are looking to take advantage of the strong Pound/Euro exchange rate.

Recently the Pound has strengthened to a four year high against the Euro meaning holidaymakers are receiving 11.5%* more value for their money compared to last year. In addition it is reported that prices in restaurants and bars in destinations are falling.
