Good exchange rate could boost enjoyment of villa holiday - 30 Jun 2009
Holidaymakers have been told that shopping around for a good exchange rate ahead of embarking on their Villa holidays in Italy could improve the quality of a break.
Research from Tesco Travel Money has revealed that 34 per cent of holidaymakers are planning to spend less on their holidays this year.
Meanwhile, some 33 per cent are opting for self catering breaks because they are believed to be cheaper, while four in ten will go out less to bars and clubs in the evening.
However, a spokesperson for Tesco Travel Money has revealed some holidaymakers are not doing the right things to make their money go further.
"Getting a good deal on your foreign currency can make your holiday money stretch a lot further so it makes sense to shop around," the spokesperson said.
"Our research shows that over a third of holiday makers still head to their high street bank or travel agent and one in five use cash points abroad for the majority of their holiday spending money, so they're still really missing a trick."
Those looking at going away in Italy have a number of locations to select from with some of the possible destinations including staying in Villas in Sardinia or Tuscany.
