Brits travelling abroad during the credit crunch are overwhelmingly resistant to altering their plans, according to a new survey.
The research, conducted for the Telegraph Travel Awards, found that 92 per cent of respondents had not changed their choice of destination due to the current economic crisis.
What’s more, 96 per cent said they would not opt for cheaper accommodation.
In the awards, New Zealand was named the best non-European country and Cape Town was voted the top world city to visit.
Both results suggest that a taste for faraway destinations persists over any move to frugality in times of financial difficulty.
London’s five-star Claridge’s in Mayfair, which has suites costing several thousands of pounds per night, was named as the top hotel.
Over 25,000 people were polled as part of the Telegraph Travel Awards, which honours destinations and travel service providers across the industry each year.
