Learning holidays 'set to be popular'
06 December 2009 18:41
British travellers are increasingly looking for holidays which involve a "deeper learning opportunity", it has been said.
According to the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), Brits are on the lookout for "an extra vocational value" to their trips and are feeling increasingly uneasy about justifying luxury holidays based on simply relaxing that they could feel are "self indulgent".
Director of AITO Kate Kenward pointed out that due to the economic downturn, people are often now searching for holidays that are good value for money.
Shopping around for deals on flights and hotels could be an ideal way to cut back on holiday spending, but Brits should be wary of failing to take out travel insurance - as this could lead to financial hardship in the future should they need to use their getaway spending money on medical treatment or another issue.
Destinations predicted to be popular with holidaymakers in 2010 include Germany, Greece, Nepal and the US, Lonely Planet recently said.
