The great Christmas get away begins!

By | Category: Travel news

We may be living in the worst economic crisis since the 1920s but that hasn’t stopped 4.25 million Brits from packing their bags and heading overseas this Christmas, with the peak travel days predicted to be today and tomorrow (Dec 22 and 23). That’s an increase on Christmas 2010, when just under four million Brits chose to get away.

A hot Christmas will cost you

The Canary Islands, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand are proving to be hot – in every sense of the word – destinations. CD-Traveller isn’t surprised: we’re willing to bet that when you’re basking in the sun’s rays on an exotic beach, you won’t be worries about missing the Queen’s speech and Eastenders Omnibus!
