lll Based on a holidaymaker survey conducted by www.HomeAway.co.uk in January, 56% of holidaymakers are planning to go to a Eurozone destination this year to take advantage of the good currency exchange rate, while enquiries for Egypt and Turkey have taken a hit following the Arab Spring. According to FairFX, which supplies prepaid money cards that customers can load with Euros, families are taking advantage of the best exchange rate in 15 months to stock up on travel money for this year. The company has seen demand for Euros increase by 100% since July.
And the Balearics is currently the second most popular destination in the world for British holiday makers this summer.
The most popular is London, but ironically, most Londoners are planning on leaving the capital during July and August. Supporting recent figures released by ABTA, the Travel Association, which showed that 12% of Britons intend to go abroad to avoid the Games, a recent holidaymaker survey conducted by HomeAway.co.uk indicates that only 7% of Britons are planning to attend the Olympics and 25% of those still haven't purchased their tickets for the event. Although London is the top destination for summer 2012, it is usually among the top three for summer anyway. This year, in spite of the Olympics, Britons are as focused on their beach breaks as ever, with the Balearics and Florida the second and third most popular destinations in July-August.
