The economic downturn has had a major impact on the spending habits of British holidaymakers, according to new research.
A poll carried out by Simon Seeks, a travel site that invites users to submit their own destination reviews, most people will not book a holiday to Spain or elsewhere unless it is discounted.
The survey found that 60 per cent of Britons are set to spend between £250 and £500 on their break this summer.
"The results show us that Brits are online, on the ball and certainly not prepared to either pay full price or use credit to pay for this year's holiday," said Simon Nixon, the website's founder.
