Staycations in Britain have seen an uplift, while overseas travel has proved less of a priority for many. There are a number of possible reasons – the uncertainty around Brexit, the threat of terrorism, and in the case of the USA, possibly even a ‘Trump Effect’.
Is overseas travel still a priority for you or do you consider it more important to save your money? How important is it to experience other places and broaden your horizons? Share your thoughts and feedback below at Speakers Corner.
