ABTA: Cautious optimism in the travel sector

The travel industry is "cautiously optimistic" about 2010, one sector group has said.

Following figures from the Office for National Statistics which showed that the number of overseas visits by UK residents fell between May and July, ABTA - The Travel Association said that some in the sector are warily hopeful about market conditions next year.

Spokeswoman for ABTA - The Travel Association Frances Tuke said that bookings for next year are "looking good at this stage".

If people are planning on booking their 2010 summer break far in advance, they could find it wise to use the next few months to find the best value travel insurance policy for their holiday.

"There are some very good areas of growth, places outside the EU like Turkey and Egypt and this summer other places like Cyprus and Tunisia have been doing well and growing quite nicely," Ms Tuke went on to say.
