Non-eurozone countries 'offer better exchange rates'

People planning to take a stag weekend abroad could find a trip outside to the eurozone offers them better value for money.

According to the Association of British Travel Agents (Abta), the pound slumped by nearly a third against the euro and dollar last year.

As a result, it believes people from the UK will start to avoid countries which use these currencies and head to places which offer better exchange rates.

Turkey in particular was said to be becoming increasingly popular, along with eastern European countries such as Croatia.

Frances Tuke, spokesperson for Abta, told BBC News: "Last year we saw an increase in visitors to Turkey by 32 per cent."

The Co-Operative Travel group has been among the firms to note an increase in the number of bookings for trips to the country.

According to the organisation, Turkey has seen an eight per cent rise in popularity among its customers in the last year.
