A few days away and on return, I see that the US Dollar has weakened by over 10% during the past week meaning a pound now buys just over USD1.53.
That's great news for anyone thinking of flying anywhere as aviation fuel is priced in dollars and will be that little bit cheaper, possibly reducing some long haul flight surcharges. Plus most long haul destinations price their hotels and ground arrangements in US dollars and we have already reduced the prices for our hotels available through online booking.
But best of all those popular gay destinations such as Ft Lauderdale, Palm Springs and San Francisco are starting to look affordable again. Besides the pound buying more US Dollars, there are some great bargains to be had as many restaurants and bars are making special offers for overseas visitors - plus we'll give you an 11% discount voucher when you go shopping at Macy's - great for Dockers, Levis and other designer goods.
So start searching online for a great holiday buy to the US and further afield
