Money could be saved if Britons choose all-inclusive holidays, it has been claimed, with one expert suggesting the option will be popular in 2011.
Bob Atkinson, travel expert at Travelsupermarket.com, says such a move "allows people to operate a budget" and "manage [it] closely", observing: "It is also very good value for money".
Those worried about how vacations will affect their financial planning might pick package deals, with savings potentially protected because extra costs such as drinks and ice creams are included in the price.
The recent ABTA - the Travel Association Travel Trends 2011 Report predicted such options will be popular in the coming year, noting 74 per cent of holidaymakers believe getting the most for their money is essential when it comes to breaks.
And savings might go further if Britons venture outside the eurozone, it has been suggested, as the weaker pound means places like Turkey and Egypt offer attractively low costs compared to traditional favourites such as France and Spain.
Thomas Cook's recently-published cost of living survey revealed that prices in destinations such as mainland Spain, Majorca and Cyprus remain cheaper than the UK.
The cheapest destination was revealed to be Goa, where the cost of a cup of coffee is more than ten times cheaper than in the UK.
