Non-euro countries ‘to prove popular’

Non-euro countries 'to prove popular'Travel company Cox and Kings has predicted that holidays outside the eurozone could be a popular option for Brits this year owing to the low value of the pound against the euro.

Current exchange rates mean that £1 is worth just over €1.25, meaning that Brits’ spending power on the continent has been cut by around 20 per cent compared to last year.

Cox and Kings claims that its booking patterns show an interest in European countries that are yet to adopt the single currency.

One example is Bulgaria, with the company receiving 220 per cent more bookings for trips to the country than last year.

Michael Fleetwood, Cox and Kings’ Europe product manager, said: "We are delighted to see such interest in Bulgaria, which has a huge amount to offer visitors in the way of culture and scenery."

Flights to Bulgaria are available from a number of locations in the UK, including Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick Airport.

Other destinations set to prove popular this summer, according to Cox and Kings, include Poland, Turkey and Estonia.
