Half adults planning to take ‘post summer’ breaks

Half adults planning to take ‘post summer’ breaks

New research from Tesco Travel Money shows that approximately half (46%) of UK adults are set to go abroad in the next few months to take advantage of falling prices. One third (29%) said they were taking a break later in the year to avoid their destination being too packed with people, 29% said it was to save money, and 27% said that they wanted to take advantage of cheaper deals. “In the current climate, many people have been waiting to see if their finances can stretch to a break this year and are hoping late deals will offer them good savings,” said Tesco Bank Head of Travel Money John Howells.”One way to hang onto any savings made is to ensure that you find a good deal on your holiday cash. Getting a competitive rate on your foreign currency can make your holiday money stretch a lot further, and ensure you don’t lose out on any savings you might have made by picking up a cheap break,” he added. Of those planning to take a holiday abroad from September, 57% plan to stay in Europe, and just under half of these late holidaymakers plan to go to countries where they can use the Euro. One fifth (22%) say they are still undecided where they will take their break, and will wait to see where they can get the best deals.
