Travellers 'looking for good value this summer'

14 Jul 2009

Stag parties may be looking to cut back on costs during the recession, but revellers are still determined to get away, it would seem.

According to Jonathan Mitcham, principle researcher for consumer magazine Which? Holiday, the bleak financial outlook and low value of sterling are causing some tourists to alter their travel plans.

But while those planning stag weekends and short breaks this year are looking for better value, they are reluctant to ditch their time away altogether.

Mr Mitcham said some holidaymakers are snubbing traditional eurozone destinations in favour of cheaper overseas locations, while many are opting for a break here in the UK.

"Currently, it will save you money to choose a holiday outside the eurozone, such as Croatia, Egypt or Turkey," he advised.

Meanwhile for those looking to stay closer to home, the lively pubs and clubs in cities such as Nottingham stag weekends and Brighton stag weekends could provide the basis for a top stag weekend away.

According to online travel agent, good value for money now takes precedence over hotel reviews and location for Brits looking to book a summer trip.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19264138-ADNFCR
