Another very good reason to holiday in the UK


According to an article just published on Travelmole, flying out of the UK is about to get a whole lot more expensive.  The reason?  Because the airlines want to recover some of the costs incurred from the disruption caused by the volcanic ash from Iceland.

This seems a rather backward step on the part of the airlines given that people are now probably very wary about flying anyway.  Afterall, there’s no way of telling whether this eruption could wreak yet more havoc in the coming months, or indeed whether the volcano’s near neighbour – which is ten times the size – may also erupt (which, going by most accounts you read, seems likely).

UK travellers can expect to pay an additional £1.8 billion for flights or £48 each on average, according to figures from the Centre for Economics and Business Research for the website Kelkoo. The study also warns that fares are set to rise by 11.5% by 2012.

Anyway, the easy solution to it all for UK holidaymakers?  Simply to holiday in the UK, of course!
