Holiday Stress

With the Spring half-term just around the corner, research has revealed that for more than half of Brits, booking a holiday comes with anxieties about the cost. 

When it comes to holiday worries, 59% of respondents to the Ukash research said they get anxious about the cost of the trip.

Since last week’s General Election, the pound has gained 2.4% against the US Dollar and 3.5% against the Euro.  And British holidaymakers are considerably better off than they were this time last year, when spending abroad. Travellers get an extra €77 for every £500, compared to 2014, making this a great time to think ahead and buy holiday currency for trips to Europe and the US.

Once the holiday is booked, 29% said the thought of a long journey makes them anxious.  And a nearly a third (32%) worry about letting their partners down if they’ve made a bad choice of destination or hotel. For 36%, the thought of going somewhere unfamiliar is a concern.

What do you worry about?
