New findings from ABTA reveal 28% of people plan to spend more on their holiday this year, and that outbound travel provides a boost to local economies in the UK.
The research also shows that people’s spending holiday habits vary across the region including:
Victoria Bacon, ABTA’s Director of Brand and Business Development, said:
“The UK has always been a nation of people who enjoy taking holidays and holidays are clearly a spending priority for a lot of people.
“Many people now regard a holiday as a necessity rather than a luxury, and holidays not only provide a great experience for the holidaymaker, they also have a really positive impact on the local economy.
“For those still looking to book their holiday this year, it’s worth having a look at the deals and offers available at the moment. Some travel companies have holidays available with free-child places or money off for summer breaks.”
Booking with an ABTA approved travel company gives holidaymakers support, protection and expertise so people can travel with confidence. You can find an ABTA Member by visiting abta.com/findamember.
