The sharp post-Brexit drop in the value of the pound combined with falling flight costs has lured bargain-hunting overseas tourist to the UK for Easter، according to industry figures، The Independent reported.

International flight bookings to the UK have increased by 49 per cent for the Easter holiday period، which falls between 31 March and 14 April، compared to the same holiday period last year، according to data by eDreams ODIGEO، one of Europe’s largest e-commerce businesses and owner of online travel agency eDreams.

The fall in the pound against the euro since Britain voted to leave the EU in June has made the UK a much more attractive destination، particularly for European travellers، but the rise may also have been fuelled by falling flight costs.
