The Best Destinations for a Spring Getaway from Asda Money

The Best Destinations for a Spring Getaway from Asda Money 
Spring is already underway, and for those who are looking for balmier
temperatures than can be found on UK shores, heading overseas for a
dose of sun, sea and sun is an ideal option. Asda Money reveals the
best spring getaway destinations for 2013. 
LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/13 -- Brits spend an
average of five months saving an average of GBP 621.91 for their trip
away with a massive 56% of people saying they are guilty of a
spending splurge on holiday, despite never dreaming of repeating this
behaviour when in the UK.(1) 
Despite a growing squeeze on households, a number of Brits are
looking forward to a holiday getaway this summer. The demand for
tailor made packages is on the rise as holidaymakers look to make
their money go further, according to the Association of British
Travel agents.(2) 
One of the growing trends amongst British travellers is the hunt for
value overseas. Households are more likely to look for great value
holidays than cutback or avoid going away altogether. 
France is a hugely popular holiday destination for Britons being just
a hop, skip and jump across the channel. Travel costs for all the
family could be significantly reduced by driving and getting a ferry
rather than flying. Paris is expensive but outside of the capital you
can find affordable family holiday hotspots and great sunshine.
France has a lot to offer and caters for all holiday types, from
skiing in the Alps to holiday camps and stunning beaches on the south
In the past, Spain has always been a firm favourite amongst British
holidaymakers and this is not set to change in 2013. With
temperatures hitting the high teens, particularly in the south(3),
Spain is the ideal place for a spring getaway. The vibrant and
diverse country has a rich culture which can be fun for all the
family. From the lively streets of Barcelona to the golden sandy
beaches of Majorca, there is something to suit all holiday tastes. 
The global financial crisis has taken its toll on the Greek economy,
making it a great value holiday destination. All inclusive package
deals to Greece are widely available, often at low costs and the euro
is still accepted making it an affordable holiday destination. 
Whilst you might find a great holiday at cheap price, you won't want
to see a shortfall in your foreign currency exchange because you
didn't get the best rate. Over a fifth (21%) of family holidaymakers
argue about where to go on holiday or how much to spend.(4)
