Holidays to Thailand proved popular in February as people from the UK sought to capitalise on the country’s warmth and good prices.

This is according to the International Currency Exchange (ICE), which reported that orders for Thai bart increased by 102 per cent last month over February 2008 as Britain shivered and grew tired of the credit crunch.

Andrew Hamilton, head of marketing for ICE, said: “As the pound continues to struggle, it’s clear that UK travellers are changing their holiday hot spots.”

Recent data from the car hire comparison site carrentals.co.uk suggests that Easter may also be a hive of activity when it comes to holidays, with advanced bookings up by 15 per cent.

Travel Counsellors recommended Thailand in an article earlier this month thanks to its array of good hotels, unspoiled beaches, exciting culture and interesting historical sites, which it said are guaranteed to appeal to all kinds of travellers.
