Holiday spending doubles over a decade

Britons spend over 50% more on holidays than they did at the start of the Millennium, according to a new survey.

The average household is forecast to spend £1,801 0n travel at home and abroad in 2007, this is 52.6% more than was spent in 2001.

London – £1,965
South East – £1,617
Yorkshire – £1,424
