Travel firms 'reducing holiday lengths'

Holiday companies are reducing the length of breaks that they offer as the trend for taking shorter trips continues, it has been pointed out.

According to Lorna Cowan, editor of Which? Holiday, people are increasingly "downsizing" on their holidays and are looking to take seven-day trips instead of the traditional two-week getaways which people have taken in the past.

As well as this, travel agents are ever more looking at offering holidays which are ten or 11 days in length, to try and tempt Brits who are searching for a shorter break, she said.

Annual travel insurance could prove to be a vital buy, regardless of how long Brits are planning on going away for.

While some may be tempted to scrimp on their cover for holidays of only seven days, doing so could leave them out of pocket in the future as they may be forced to spend their hard-saved holiday cash on medical treatment.
