Tourists head to eastern Europe

Exchange rate fluctuations in Europe are prompting many British holidaymakers, including those aged over 50, to head to the east of the continent.

According to the Post Office, destinations such as Croatia have been attracting more and more visitors from the UK in recent months.

Head of travel services Sarah Munro said this is partly because there is lots of public awareness of the strength of the euro.

As a result, many British tourists are choosing to venture to non-eurozone destinations where they can get more for their money.

"Holidaymakers are considering all the costs of a holiday carefully," Ms Munro commented.

"[This] means that a destination like Croatia will have a growing appeal."

She added that since many people are aware of the current exchange rates between the UK and the eurozone, it is "inevitable" that consumers will opt to visit more affordable places.

Meanwhile, First Choice has welcomed the recent rallying of the pound against the euro, as tourists' "hard-earned cash" could go further if this trend continues into the summer.
