The upcoming exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union will not prevent the French to go there on holidays or weekends. According to an Easyvoyage survey, 83% of respondents who plan to cross the Channel this year maintain their destination.
By the end of 2016, 38% of French people have already planned a trip to the UK. And despite the result of the referendum of June 23, 83% decided to maintain their plans. Even after leaving the European Union, the United Kingdom will be a destination not to forget, according to 80% of respondents.
Nevertheless, some questions remain. One in two French people is worried about the administrative procedures that could be complicated with Brexit and 40% think that the price of airline tickets will fly. 46%, on the other hand, welcome the decline in the pound sterling.
Only 22% of French people have never set foot in the UK, while 38% have already spent a holiday and 40% at least one week-end. England remains the favorite destination, especially its capital London, cited by 32% of travelers. 22% think more about a trip to Scotland, favored for choosing to stay in the EU, while 8% think of Northern Ireland and 3% of Wales.
The survey was conducted from July 1 to 5 with 259 participants from the Easyvoyage community.
