Cruise Planners Notes How Brexit Impacts Tourism; U.S. Dollar Stronger Now For American Travelers

"For travelers considering going to the U.K., now is the time to make a move,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and co-founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative.

With the United Kingdom voting to divorce the European Union, through what is being called “Brexit,” the travel and tourism industry may be impacted. There are still a lot of questions about Brexit including how the next few months and years will play out in the region and if this will have a trickle down affect for other members of the EU.

In the meantime, American travelers visiting the U.K. can benefit from the destabilized British pound on the U.S. dollar is now worth more, especially in London, a traditionally expensive city for visitors. Travel professionals are encouraging travelers to book now to take full advantage of the situation. Also, with the exchange rates in flux, now is a good time to buy pounds for any upcoming trips. Exchanging cash at today’s rates allows travelers to lock in pricing and get the best deal.

"For travelers considering going to the U.K., now is the time to make a move,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and co-founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative. “The British pound is the weakest it has been in more than 30 years, so travelers can afford more."

Destinations popular with British travelers are likely to experience less occupancy, meaning Americans could see travel deals domestically and in other international destinations as well. A professional travel agent can help travelers create a customized vacation, which may include a visit to one or more of the most popular places to see in the U.K. such as:
1. London
2. Scottish Highlands
3. Stonehenge
4. Edinburgh
5. York

“The U.K. is a great destination for any traveler,” Fee said. “From a mix of modern flair and historical charm in London to the scenic Scottish Highlands, a trip to the U.K. is sure to be memorable.”
