More book­ing holidays abroad

Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEW -

DE­MAND for holidays among UK con­sumers is grow­ing de­spite plum­met­ing faith in the econ­omy, ac­cord­ing to new re­search.

Con­fi­dence to book over­seas trips is at the high­est level in three years with the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple (54%) plan­ning a hol­i­day abroad in the next 12 months, a study found.

This is de­spite fewer than one in five (19%) ex­pect­ing the econ­omy to grow in the com­ing year, down from 33% in 2016.

Over a third (35%) of peo­ple do not ex­pect their fi­nances to im­prove over the same pe­riod, com­pared with 29% a year ago.
