NEWCASTLE, England, November 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
-As Brits look for winter holiday destinations this month, ULookUBook.com announce that Turkey is a great place to look for affordable trips abroad-
Turkey has always been a popular winter destination, with many Brits taking off on all inclusive holidays to Turkey. This year the country is particularly attractive, as the exchange rate will get them much more for their money. With currency conversions in Brits' favour and with some excellent holiday deals on offer at the moment there are hundreds of reasons why people should be booking holidays to the region.
The Pound currently buys around 2.71 Turkish Liras, whereas last October it would only convert to 2.09 Lira according to data from the Post Office. This increase of nearly 30 per cent means that people travelling to the country on cheap holidays to Turkey get more for their money.
The destination is already incredibly popular with people looking to get away as recent figures show. Data released by the Turkish Statistical Institute demonstrates that in the third quarter of 2011 tourism income increased by 8.9 per cent compared to the same period last year. The institute also announced that during the three months of July, August and September over 12 million foreign visitors departed from the country.
Ian Raine, of ULookUBook.com, comments: "With masses of tourists jetting off to sunnier climes during the winter months the conversion rate will prove incredibly attractive to people looking to book their winter breaks. In this climate people are looking for the best price and the conversion rate is definitely taken into consideration when people are looking to book a holiday, especially if they are opting for self-catering options.
"Turkey is already an incredibly popular location and with bags of heritage, great beaches and amazing weather, you can certainly see why masses of tourists get away to the region during the holiday season. Turkey will undoubtedly prove popular this winter."
