Britons plan to holiday in the eurozone

British holidaymakers are not letting the current exchange rates put them off visiting traditional European holiday destinations, experts have stated.

According to Abta - The Travel Association, countries such as Spain and Greece are continuing to be very popular with tourists from the UK.

This, it stated, is because many eurozone members have traditionally dominated the holiday market and attract "massive" numbers of Britons every year.

Indeed, Abta spokesperson Sean Tipton said about 13 million UK holidays are taken in Spain annually.

Many analysts had believed that the weakness of the pound against the euro, combined with the economic recession in Britain, would prompt people to either holiday in the UK or visit more affordable destinations.

However, Mr Tipton stated that even if these factors do dent visitor numbers in the eurozone, traditional markets will remain the main hotspots for Britons overall.

"They are just so dominant in the sense that they can see a drop off and still be the most popular destinations attracting many more holidaymakers than other countries," he commented.
