Booze ban ‘funds trips’
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.
