India could offer Brits a good value break
12 November 2009 12:36
Brits looking for value for money on an extended break could find that a trip to India gives them the chance to "travel very well for a very long time", it has been claimed.
According to travel editor at Lonely Planet Tom Hall, while India may not be "as universally cheap" as it once was, Brits could still find the country good value for money "at the top end".
"If you go into backpacker havens like Goa and Pushkar, you try to eat cheaply and you have simple tastes then you will be very surprised as to how far your money goes," Mr Hall advised.
As well as this, Brits may find that on their trip they are able to stay in impressive hotels which were once palaces, it is noted.
Before taking a long trip abroad, Brits may want to look at the different types of holiday insurance available to them - and could find it wise to invest in a special gap year or backpackers travel insurance policy.
