Green travel 'can be affordable'

Travelling in an eco-friendly way is still an affordable method to take a holiday, it has been noted.

Eco-conscious Brits may find that going green on holiday still offers good value, with Krissy Roe, from, saying that travelling in a more responsible way "doesn't actually have to cost any more".

"It isn't normally more expensive to eat in local restaurants, shop in local markets, stay in locally owned accommodation and travel in a more thoughtful way," she claimed.

In fact, making all of these travel choices could actually see Brits spending less cash on a break, Ms Roe noted.

Being careful with spending money on holiday and trying to make a getaway as cheap as possible could be high on the list of priorities for Brits holidaying during the recession.

However, cutting back on holiday insurance may actually prove to be more costly in the long run, should an incident occur and holidaymakers be forced to use their own money to cover the cost.
