05 01 2009
A new survey has revealed that Brits are planning on taking more holidays this year, despite the recession.
Travel Mole has reported that the poll, conducted by travelsupermarket.com, shows that the average number of holidays planned by Brits will increase from 1.5 in 2008 to 1.8 this year.
The survey found that more than a quarter of people will be making no changes to their annual leave and travelsupermarket.com's in-house experts predicted that Brits would be changing the way they chose to holiday rather than the amount of holiday they take.
Bob Atkinson, travel expert from travelsupermarket.com, said: "In general, holidaymakers are now much more savvy about booking and getting the best deals.
He added: "For those looking to peg their holiday price, all inclusive holidays will continue their rise in popularity."
Recently, Ian Bradley of the Association of Independent Tour Operators predicted that people will increasingly view their holidays as a vital means of escaping the doom and gloom of the current economic climate in the UK.
