Booze ban ‘funds trips’

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

PEO­PLE giv­ing up al­co­hol for “dry Jan­uary” could save enough money to splash out on hol­i­days.

Even a five-week “no drink­ing” stint could re­sult in a cou­ple sav­ing enough for a two-night stay in Am­s­ter­dam, a study for for­eign ex­change firm Cax­ton found. Go­ing al­co­hol-free for 10 weeks could po­ten­tially fund five nights in the Al­garve.

Re­searchers as­sumed a drink­ing habit of eight pints of beer and one bot­tle of wine per cou­ple per week, bought from a bar or pub.
