With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee upon them, many Brits made plans to travel for the four-day holiday, from June 2-5. In fact, according to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), nearly two million have made travel plans and many of those booked an extra three days off to turn it into a full-blown holiday. Right now the pound is strong compared to the euro and they want to take advantage of that.
Greece and Spain have been popular destinations and ABTA said that those looking for cheap flights might have good luck with Cyprus, Turkey, and Tunisia. For those looking for great city getaways, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Dublin, and New York have much to offer. Thousands have also booked trips to sunny destinations, such as Florida and Mexico. Mark Tanzer, ABTA Chief Executive, said that thousands will go to London to take part in the celebrations, but millions just want to get away and enjoy the break.
