Decline of £ against other currencies is not a total diaster says

This week’s news that the pound has seen a 6% drop against the Euro need not be a total disaster for holidays this summer says

Despite the decline, countries such as Greece, Cyprus and Spain remain great value destinations and holiday bargains can be found to all of these traditional hot spots.  However for a real bargain, destinations including Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia offer even better value.

Late Deals from only £25.50 per person per night for a 14 night all inclusive holiday in Turkey are available from, including all meals and drinks plus flights and accommodation.  There are plenty of activities on offer, historical attractions to visit, great beaches to enjoy and daily sunshine almost guaranteed. CEO Alex Francis commented “We’ve secured some amazing bargains for this summer, so for holidaymakers who are travelling on a tight budget there are still plenty of options.  However given the financial instability in certain destinations, and a potential further decline in the pound, our advice to travellers is to book an all-inclusive deal to maximise every pound spent.  Also, all-inclusive allows holidaymakers to budget effectively and they don’t need to worry about carrying too much cash.”

“For those who prefer to stay in self-catering or bed and breakfast accommodation we’d simply recommend they take multiple forms of payment and be prepared to get a lower than normal return on their pound.”


For holidaymakers wondering just how the pound compares in some of the top holiday spots has compiled a top 5 guide to their most popular holiday destinations highlighting where visitors can expect the best return.
