British holidaymakers head to eurozone

Leisure travellers from the UK are not letting poor exchange rates put them off travelling to the eurozone, analysts have stated.

Ongoing problems in the global economy recently forced the pound down to a record low against the single European currency.

However, Holiday-Rentals believes tourists from the UK are still largely opting to head for countries which use the euro, despite growing interest in some non-eurozone destinations.

"Some of the tried and tested destinations are still popular," said Sarah Chambers, PR manager at the group.

"The top destinations remain the same."

Ms Chambers highlighted Spain as one of the most popular options among British tourists, with places such as Barcelona and the Canary Islands attracting lots of bookings.

This comes after price comparison site stated that the collapse of the pound against the dollar and the euro means that trips to destinations which use these currencies will be "much more expensive" this year.
