Rob Stross, CMO of WeSwap, said: “It is great to see the diverse range of destinations that Brits are keen to travel to during the Christmas period. It seems that people are keener now than ever before to make experiences with friends and family, and holidaymakers are even more focused on taking part in activities beyond the traditional excursions, looking to enhance their experiences with ones tailored to preferences like thrill-seeking or wellbeing. “

“By allocating more of their holiday budgets to spending money, holidaymakers are sending a message to travel agents and providers alike that consumers aren’t necessarily just concerned with luxury stays in all-inclusive resorts. Instead, this Christmas, millions of Brits are looking for the cheapest providers so that they and their loved ones can have the best experience while there, eating in great local restaurants, unique day-trips and memorable experiences,” he added.
