American Express names most popular holiday destinations

American Express has announced the most popular holiday destinations among Brits for 2013.

Holidays in Thailand, New Zealand, Barbados and Singapore have all risen in popularity in the first three months of the year, according to the new report. The report, which is based on currency purchases, also saw Iceland rise dramatically in popularity. The Eurozone, US, Australia, Egypt and Mexico held their places in the top five year on year. However, Turkey, Canada, Hong Kong and Norway saw a slip in popularity compared with 2012.   Thailand moved up two places to land in sixth position, as more Brits travel to the South-East Asian destination for cheap accommodation and sun. The continued value for money against the pound is expected to draw in 24.5 million tourists to the country this year, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand. “The start of 2013 saw some of the coldest temperatures recorded in the UK and as the American Express Currency Index shows, some Brits have been lucky enough to escape to warmer climates,” said Terry Perrin, director at American Express Foreign Exchange Services. “They have sought out tropical temperatures of Thailand and warm Egyptian sun as an alternative to our wintery weather, and explored new destinations such as Iceland.” The Egyptian pound and Icelandic krona also saw significant gain in popularity when compared with the previous year. Iceland moved three places to 18th and saw a 36 per cent increase in tourist arrivals in the first two months of this year. “Other currencies to watch out for over the coming months will be the Turkish Lira, which fell three places in the first three months of the year...We also saw increased amounts of the United Arabs Emirates Dirham being purchased last year, so it will be interesting to see how this currency performs in 2013.” Image sources: 1 2 3
