More Brits plan to increase holiday spend in next 12 months
More Brits plan to increase their holiday spend over the next year, according to research by Mintel.
The Mintel study reveals 27% of British holidaymakers expect to spend more on holidays over the next year – up from 22% in 2017.
But 43% say that Brexit uncertainties have made them more cautious.
The survey of 2,000 holidaymakers found 28% expect to take more holidays of a minimum of four nights in the next 12 months, compared to 23% in 2017.
A third (30%) said they are more likely to book an all-inclusive holiday in 2019.
Mintel travel analyst Marloes De Vries said more travellers are likely to consider staycations or lower-cost destinations such as Turkey and Tunisia, but added the Brexit delay could boost summer holiday bookings as ‘consumers will be more reluctant to commit to trips later in the year’.
