Credit crunch 'impacts on holiday plans'

A new survey has revealed the extent to which the effects of the credit crunch are impacting on people's summer spending.

CreditExpert spoke to more than 1,000 adults in the UK and found that almost one-quarter (24 per cent) have put holidays on the backburner.

Of that number, 43 per cent claimed the credit crunch is to blame.

Additionally, the study found that more than 2.5 million people will go into debt on account of taking a holiday. This is twice the number seen last year, suggesting that travel insurance and other financial precautions are more important than ever for holidaymakers.

"The credit crunch is really biting now and it will be painful for people to make the choice between not going on holiday or taking on more debt to do so," said Jim Hodgkins, managing director of CreditExpert.

One way of bringing holiday costs down could be to use multi-trip travel insurance. According to American Express, annual travel insurance can bring down policy prices for those who like to travel more than once a year.
