Is it the End of Cheap Holidays?

Families that were looking to get away this year for a well earned break are finding that they are being stopped by sky-high prices on what would normally be a budget deal holiday.

The average cost of a two week holiday for a family of four has increased as much as ?500 this year compared to prices from the previous year. With the increase in prices families have also seen as massive reduction on the number of destinations that you are able to visit.

One of the leading travel agents has cut the number of sales to the mainland of Spain by as much as a quarter this year. Although Spain saw the most reductions, many other destinations have had a reduced number in sales with some countries not being included at all any more. With a limited number of destinations available many families are finding it hard to find the right one for them without having to spend a lot of money to get it.

The rise in prices of holidays and the reduction of destinations that are now available comes after a combination of the credit crunch, rising oil prices and the weakness of the pound against the euro, which have all affected the travel industry greatly. With the weakness of the pound not only does the initial price of the holiday go up but so do the prices of everyday things while abroad, such as meals, drinks and days out.

Many Brits are now choosing to go all inclusive on their holidays rather than self catering to try and cut costs while abroad. As well as this many are choosing not to go to the travel agents to book their holidays, instead many are using the internet and price comparison sites to try and find them selves a good deal.
