Weak pound ‘did not discourage Brits over Easter’

British travellers continued to take tours in Venice, New York and other destinations in Europe and the United States over Easter despite the low value of the pound, new figures suggest.

International Currency Exchange (Ice) revealed that the euro was the most popular currency among its customers ahead of the Easter holiday, accounting for 39 per cent of sales, followed closely by the US dollar with 38 per cent.

The Thai baht was in a distant third place with seven per cent of the currency firm’s orders, followed by the Australian dollar (four per cent) and the Mexican peso (three per cent).

Andrew Hamilton, Ice head of marketing, said: "We are in a recession but families want holidays that are low on stress and high in convenience and that means short journeys by train, car, sea or plane into Europe or guaranteed sunshine and family friendly holidays in the US.

"That said, Thailand is proving to be a popular destination after Europe and the US."

The exchange firm released figures last month which indicated that the Canadian dollar, the Czech koruna and the Polish zloty are also among the ten most popular currencies for Brits.
