Brits Cut Back on Summer Holidays

Around two fifths of Brits won’t be taking a summer holiday this year in order to save money, according to a recent poll by ING Direct.

Officially the country may be finding its way out of recession, but many British people are still finding themselves in a tight financial situation, with ‘luxury items’ such as holidays the first to go. Of the 2,000 participants surveyed, 39% said they would not be taking a holiday this year, representing 17.7 million Brits who will choose to stay at home. According to TravelMole, 9 out of 10 of these people would normally have taken a holiday.

Even staycations are out of the question, with UK hotels deemed as expensive as going abroad.

Have financial worries changed your holiday plans this year? Leave us a comment and let us know.
