Sunshine and good value among Brits’ holiday must-haves

Price is often the biggest determining factor when it comes to choosing where to take a holiday, according to a new survey of British travel trends.
A poll of 2,000 people carried out on behalf of American Express Insurance Services indicated that price was the most important consideration for one in six Brits looking for a break abroad, while currency exchange rates and warm temperatures were also named as important factors.
The survey also found that more UK-based travellers are looking to spend holiday time outside of the eurozone, as they think they may find more value for their money by going abroad.
However, people should not cut costs to the point where they neglect to purchase travel insurance, according to Chris Rolland, head of the insurance firm.
Those on a budget who are looking for a warm getaway to South Africa may wish to heed the advice of the country’s tourism board, which recently published an article in the Daily Mail.
According to the group, the country’s ‘secret season’ – which is the period between May and August – is a good time to save on accommodation, as prices can be reduced by up to 30 per cent.
