More Brits Travelling Overseas

There’s no doubt that an awful lot of us enjoy foreign travel – and TTG Media recently highlighted Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures that showed last year was the busiest ever for outbound travel.

According to the ONS data, 70.8 million overseas visits were made by UK citizens in 2016, with the amount we spent exploring other countries climbing by 12 per cent year-on-year to reach £43.8 billion.

That means that more and more of us are making the journey to UK airports to catch flights elsewhere – but how often do you think about your trip to the airport as part of the holiday itself? For many of us, it’s more of a chore that bookends a break.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You could take advantage of chauffeured car hire services in Gloucestershire to get you to the airport with minimum stress and hassle.

That means you can sit back and enjoy the drive, without having to worry about route planning, finding a carpark for the duration of your holiday, or the expense of airport parking. With a chauffeur driven car, all of that is taken care of for you – or something you don’t need to consider.

Spain, France, Italy, Ireland and the US were the five most popular destinations last year, according to the ONS.

At the end of last year, the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) picked out 12 destinations to watch in 2017, with the top one being Andalucia in Spain. Spots in Ireland, Italy and the USA also made the list.
