Over a third of UK holidaymakers plan to spend between £2,000 and £4,000 on their holidays in 2011, according to recent research by TripAdvisor, with some 36 per cent of respondents believing they will spend more on their travel away in 2011 than they did in 2010.
While many may be splashing out and spending more on overall holiday costs, often holidaymakers are keen to keep reins on their holiday budgets while actually away. Post Office Travel Credit Cards is advising all UK holidaymakers who want to stick to a budget while on holiday to use a travel credit card which can help make the most of their travel money when making purchases abroad.
However, while a travel credit card offers a flexible and convenient way to pay for goods and services overseas, some high-street banks impose significant fees and charges for using their travel credit cards abroad making it essential for travellers to shop around prior to departure to ensure they pack a good value travel credit card.
The Post Office is recommending all travellers shop around for the best deals on their travel credit cards before departure, while also ensuring they take enough foreign currency away with them to cover everyday expenses.
The Post Office’s travel credit card boasts 0% commission on purchases overseas as well as no cash advance fee when purchasing Post Office travel money using its travel credit card.
