2008 News Archive - Holidays - Regular holidays are "important"
29 10 2008
Holidays are seen as an important part of everyday life and a way of re-charging the batteries, it has been claimed.
Paul Havenhand, marketing director for insurance specialist Towergate Bakers, suggested that despite the credit crunch, holidays are sill viewed as an essential expenditure.
Britons work longer hours than their European counterparts and enjoy fewer bank holidays, he noted, adding that regular holidays are more important than ever.
"A week or two away from our normally hectic lives whether it be in the UK or further afield is still seen as an important way to re-charge our batteries," he commented.
In related news, a recent study carried out by TripAdvisor revealed that 56 per cent of Britons are planning to spend more on holidays over the coming year.
Furthermore, 69 per cent of people said that an unfavourable exchange rate would not deter them from travelling within the eurozone.
