The credit crunch that is squeezing the budgets of many Britons will not put them off their annual holidays, it has been found.

A recent survey carried out in Leeds city centre found that three-quarters of respondents still plan to go away as normal, compared to 18.5 per cent who said their plans would have to change.

Some 98 per cent said they would forego luxury items, for example, eating out, in order to save money for a holiday and 76 per cent are already saving money for this purpose.

One respondent, Sylvia Evans, said: “[The credit crunch] did make me think twice, but didn’t actually put me off.”

Anyone looking for a well-priced holiday with a bit of culture could consider booking flights to India.

The country’s Inca citadel of Machu Picchu became the best-selling tour destination worldwide in June, according to the website IExplorer.

Meanwhile, it was recently chosen by Forbes magazine as the number one adventure tourist site for seven consecutive years, reports the Peru News Agency.
