Despite many people still feeling the pitch, Brits are no longer willing to miss out on a holiday.
Taking a holiday abroad is a luxury that many Brits are unwilling to forego, even when many are faced with a squeeze on their household spending.
Going away for a few days to escape it all holds huge appeal for many people around the country and Julie Hay, head of a credit card division at American Express, said recent research from the company showed two-thirds of Brits want to go overseas this year.
Although some have seen difficulties caused by the ongoing financial crisis, they still want to put their hard-earned cash towards a break away.
She explained that most people are unwilling to miss out on going to another country “whether it is a case of escaping for some sun, visiting loved ones overseas, or seizing the opportunity for a new experience”.
For those with a sense of adventure, going to New Zealand could be on the cards, as the country is well known for offering a wide range of adrenaline-filled activities.
