Credit crunch, economic slowdown, whatever we dislike to call it, the current gloomy financial climate has not seemed to dampen British spirits as much as predicted – at least when it comes to booking our holidays.

In the past three penny-pinching months, travel is the only consumer services sector to report growth in business volume (according to a report from the Confederation of Business Industry Survey in May), revealing that holidays are valued higher than other luxury commodities even when our disposable income is under pressure.
