New research from Post Office Travel Money has revealed that more than three-quarters of holidaymakers believe they will take as much holiday in 2010 as they did last year . However, the findings also indicate that eight in 10 people will adjust their travel plans this year in a bid to get the most out of their travel money .
One of the primary ways UK travellers are set to save is by choosing cheaper alternative destinations which they may not have previously considered in the hope of getting more value for their travel money.
The Post Office advises that by researching the best-value destinations, not only could holidaymakers make substantial travel money savings, but they could also secure themselves an extra few days away. For example, travellers who switch from 10 days in the Maldives to two weeks in Thailand could save an extra £530 in travel money per person and gain an additional four days away for a similar price.
According to Post Office Travel Money research, Thailand is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations for UK tourists. The combination of stronger sterling foreign currency exchange rates, combined with lower tourist prices, can make Thailand a great value destination to help UK holidaymakers' travel money go further.
