Britons Advised To Visit Turkey This Winter
News Posted On: 18 August 2008
Consumers in the UK are being encouraged to avoid paying over the odds on fuel bills this winter by visiting a sunny location.
Artemis Travel stated that Turkey offers average temperatures of about 20 degrees C during the winter months, which it said makes the country a "welcome alternative" to the UK.
The firm added that with the cost of utilities in the UK currently "soaring", escaping to the sun could also be financially beneficial, as they would end up paying less on heating their home.
Nigel Harris, business development director at Artemis, commented: "Older travellers will be particularly keen to relax in the sun while simultaneously reducing soaring energy bills at home."
Meanwhile, M&S Money has revealed that a growing number of British people are purchasing Turkish lira.
According to figures from the company, there has been a 53 per cent year-on-year increase in sales of the currency.
Spokesperson Fraser Millar said this is because the strong euro has led to Britons looking beyond the eurozone for the best-value holiday destinations.
