Savvy Brits 'hope to cut holiday spending'

We may now be officially out of recession, but that doesn't mean that people in Britain are splashing their cash around willy-nilly.

In fact, when it comes to holidays, it seems we are keen to avoid being unnecessarily frivolous while still making sure we get our annual fortnight in the sun.

A survey carried out by eDigitalResearch has found that one in four travel insurance cover customers are hoping to cut the cost of their break by up to 50 per cent this year, perhaps by opting for self catering breaks and going down a star rating when it comes to hotels.

Furthermore, almost half of the respondents are more likely to shop around online to make sure they get the best deal possible, instead of relying on the first travel agent they come across.

If you're eager to shave some pounds off your break, you may be interested in new research from Travelex.

The company's January money tracker found that the eastern Caribbean could be the best place to go in terms of bang for your buck, with the value of the pound up 27 per cent against the Jamaican dollar since last year.
