People might be looking to cut back on outgoings in light of the credit crunch, but they are determined not to sacrifice holidays and stag weekends away, it would seem.
Travel firm AA Apointments revealed that tour operators are still experiencing strong interest from holidaymakers looking to book that all-important summer break.

According to Mary Rance, chief executive of UK inbound, Britain still offers "a very good quality experience" for those staying closer to home this year.
