Brits 'going long-haul' to save holiday money
12 November 2009 13:32
More Brits are looking to jet off on long-haul holidays in a bid to save money, it has been said.
Taking holidays to areas such as the Far East may be more expensive in terms of flights and other costs, but once there, Brits can take a number of steps to limit their costs, it is noted, including buying cheap annual travel insurance.
According to director of product management at Expedia EMEA Jonathan Cudworth, places such as Bangkok are popular with Brits.
"It is expensive to get to but once you are there then it is easy and cheap to eat out and go out and enjoy yourselves," he said.
Mr Cudworth advised people travelling to Asian cities to explore the possibility of getting museum passes to save cash and walking instead of using public transport.
While these may all help Brits keep their holiday spend to a minimum, cutting back on travel insurance could prove to be more expensive in the long run should holidaymakers need to make a claim.
