Holidays to South Africa are proving a popular choice this summer for travellers from the UK thanks to a promising exchange rate, it has been reported.

According to Traveldailynews.com, due to the World Cup, along with the fact that the rand is a more favourable currency compared to the euro, many people are choosing to take their 2009 summer holiday in South Africa.

Figures reported from M&S Money revealed the South African rand was the fourth most bought foreign currency this year and the Post Office rated the destination as the third cheapest for UK holidaymakers according to its Holiday Costs Barometer.

Fiona Jeffery, chairman of the World Travel Market, said: “South Africa is a brilliant holiday destination which is growing in popularity amongst British travellers.”

Those who have booked a cheap flight to South Africa between July 22nd and August 3rd may wish to visit Durban for the International Film Festival.
