Eurozone countries such as Spain, France and Italy have risen to such prominence as holiday destinations for Brits that they will always be popular, regardless of the exchange rate, according to Abta – The Travel Association.
The pound has recently fallen to record lows in value against the euro and it has been suggested that this trend could lead to fewer people visiting traditional holiday hotspots in Europe.
Abta spokesman Sean Tipton said that even if visitor numbers do go down in countries such as Spain and Greece, they have become so popular that they will still be the dominant destinations.
"People are still going to be taking holidays in the eurozone because it is so dominant – countries like Spain and Greece have massive numbers of Brits visiting each year," he said.
"Twelve to 13 million UK holidays are taken in Spain each year. It is so dominant [that] even if numbers go down, it will still be number one."
Mr Tipton went on to point out that the USA is the only one of the top five countries for British travellers that is outside the eurozone, with Spain, France, Italy and Greece occupying the other top spots.
