Holidaymakers who take luxury breaks are not affected by the impact of currency fluctuations, it has been claimed.According to the organisers of the Luxury Travel Fair, despite the strong euro and weak pound, luxury travellers will still head to Europe for a break.While currency changes may not have an impact on people taking luxury holidays, they should still make sure they invest in a travel insurance policy to cover the financial cost of any problems on a break.Commenting on luxury holidays, Luxury Travel Fair director Chris Gallon said: "There is a big market [of travellers] out there who say 'we will stay at home this year' but, specifically for luxury travellers, they are not so affected by changes in currency."He went on to say that such tourists could be looking for hotels and accommodation that offer something a bit different and unique which they can "talk about when they get home".Published by World First Travel Insurance - providers of worldwide travel insurance for all types of holiday, cheap annual travel insurance and great family travel insurance.
