Overseas travel at low level
September 28th, 2010 by elisa

Total spend on overseas travel by Britons last year was lower than in 2005, according to a new report by market intelligence provider, Key Note.

The report found that money spent on UK travel and tourism fell by 5.5% in 2009 to £70.17bn. Package holidays were worst affected, falling by 19% from 2008 levels. These lower levels of travel abroad did not mean that Britons were not going on holiday at all however, as the UK domestic market had a boost in number of trips and bed nights compared with the previous year. 

Key Note forecast gains made in the UK domestic market will be maintained for 2010. However, it warned this trend may be reversed after 2010, although the London Olympics is expected to provide a boost to domestic travel and tourism in 2012.
