May travel figures at pre-recession levels

Government travel statistics have shown that the number of people travelling in May 2011 were at similar levels to figures in 2008 before the great credit crunch.

Around 5.14 million UK residents went abroad in May and the number of foreign trips increased by 11% to over 14 million in the three months to end of May. However, figures have shown that Britons spending is still low with an increase in spending of 7% per traveller compared with 2010 figures.
