Budget travelling a 'slice of exotica'
26 January 2009 07:52
Britons travelling on a tight budget this autumn may be in for more fun than they bargained for, according to one travel writer.
While splashing out on luxury holidays may appeal to your decadent side, travelling on a shoe-string can provide a far more authentic cultural experience.
With less money to enjoy themselves, holidaymakers may also be keen to squeeze every last bit of pleasure out of their trip.
Dixe Wills, writing for the Guardian, said: "Perhaps the best thing is that wherever you go to - be it somewhere close at hand or some far-flung slice of exotica - having to stick to a budget when you get there can make travel the adventure it once was."
Despite the onset of the credit crunch, holidaymakers are clearly keen to make it abroad no matter what the cost, with research by the Association of British Travel Agents revealing that 80 per cent of those who took a trip overseas in the last year planning to do again in the near future.
