Who are BL Claims Solicitors

Research commissioned by ABTA has revealed that the average spend by UK consumers before they even leave the country is £532.00. This includes payments to travel companies, essential holiday accessories, clothes, cameras, the list goes on.In addition to the more exciting purchases made before we travel, there is the massive hike in Air Passenger Duty to swallow which has seen a massive increase of 333 per cent since 2005. The message from ABTA is that "the foreign holiday market is an essential component of a healthy and dynamic UK economy." It seems that if we travel abroad less then we spend less on all the items we purchase before jetting off.

We may be able to confidently shop around for a bargain before leaving for our holidays. What we perhaps have less control over is the price we pay for food, drink and hotels after arriving at our destination country. Rio de Janeiro has apparently overtaken Sydney as the world's most expensive place for a hotel stay. An average night's stay in Brazil's capital will set you back over £190.00. For the most expensive Club sandwich, head to Paris where the average cost is double what you would pay in New York at over £20.00!
