Some ten million motorists are expected to take to the roads in order to get to their various destinations, with airport routes likely to be at their busiest tomorrow (Thursday April 9th).

Mark Tanzer, Abta chief executive, said that many people have left it late, but are now booking in order to avoid missing out on the chance to recharge their batteries.

“People feel they have enough money in their pocket or just simply have had enough of worrying and have made the decision to go on holiday,” he commented.

For people restricted to travelling out of school term times, holidays to Goa may be a good option. The Nation Travel recommends the Indian resort as particularly nice during April.
