Budget Isle of Wight holidays could increase

More and more people could be looking to book a budget Isle of Wight holiday.

Insolvency body R3 found that more than a third of Britons are looking to reduce the cost of their annual break, with 68 per cent of these searching for a cheaper way to travel and 71 per cent seeking an affordable place to stay.

R3's president Steven Law stated that it is good to see Britons are taking responsibility for their finances and not spending what they cannot afford.

"It's all too easy to spend now and worry about the future later. I'd encourage anyone worried about their finances to follow the example of the holiday cost-cutters and start budgeting," he said.

Mr Law added that more people should look to the budget-cutters as an example to follow.

This could mean the Isle of Wight becomes a more popular tourism destination for Britons, with a travel blog on the Talk Talk website recently recommending people stay at Luccombe Hall.
