Luxury over Substance?

According to an article in the Evening Standard Newspaper, we no longer pick luxury over substance when choosing a holiday.

Apparently, there is a new breed of bargain hunting traveller that is looking for more than just the monotony of lying on the beach or by the pool getting a suntan. They no longer want to settle for luxury holidays which, more often than not, do not measure up in reality. Instead, these holidaymakers want to find a unique, almost ‘money can’t buy’ experience whilst abroad, they want to soak up the culture and atmosphere of the places they visit.

Furthermore, as the economic climate continues to decline, hard working Brits will become more stressed and more cautious as to how they spend their hard earned wages.

The forecast is, therefore, that in order to relieve their stress and forget their worries for a short space of time, holiday makers will want to visit a place where they can be totally absorbed into another world and culture, (and know that the privilege hasn’t cost the earth).

So when you’re bargain hunting for you holiday ‘experience’ this year, just don’t forget to grab another bargain with When making travel arrangements, a top quality travel insurance policy should always be at the top of your priority list, otherwise you could leave yourself exposed to expensive medical bills, the risk of cancellation charges or be unprotected if your treasured gadgets or belongings are damaged or stolen. has a range of travel insurance policies to meet any budget, and their flexible single trip holiday insurance offers cover for all – the individual, a group of friends, a couple or the whole family.
