New research issued this week by Travelex has revealed that British people are still eager to go abroad during 2009.

Indeed, in a poll carried out by the currency exchange company, only 17 per cent of Britons said they do not plan to leave the UK this year, while 71 per cent already know exactly what they will be doing in terms of travel.

It was also found that women were most likely to aspire to go on holidays to Australia, while men said they would prefer the eurozone, despite the poor exchange rate between the euro and the pound.

Commenting on the findings, Trevor Davis of the Co-operative said: “The results show that even in tough economic times, consumers are planning at least one trip abroad.”

A recent poll by Warner Home Video found that travel is top of the list of things for Britons to do before they die, with many saying they would like go on holidays to Australia to visit the Great Barrier Reef.
