Brexit could mean more Brits holiday in Croatia in 2018

By  Mark Thomas Jan 28, 2018

Croatia will be one of the hotspots for British tourists in 2018 as they struggle with the Euro exchange rate after the Brexit fallout, predicts TUI Travel. It is estimated that over seven million Brits booked their summer holidays in the first two weeks of 2018 and instead of the classic fortnight in the sun are looking at booking ten-day breaks in Mediterranean destinations that are outside of the Eurozone.

Turkey, Montenegro, Tunisia and Croatia are on the radar for holidaymakers this year and according to a report in The Sun package holidays are once again trending. “These holiday destinations are proving increasingly popular with Brits who are struggling with the Euro exchange rate,” writes The Sun.

All the major travel companies are seeing a rise in bookings to destinations outside of the Eurozone. Thomas cook have reported an increase in bookings to Cyprus, Egypt and Tunisia, whilst TUI Travel has also reported similar results.

Montenegro is one of the “exotic” new destinations for British tourists looking for value for money. “Petrovac, Becici, Budva and Kotor are all recommended holiday spots and unlike Croatia – which has become increasingly expensive in recent years thanks to a rise in popularity – it won’t break the bank,” reports The Sun.
