These figures have come from a study compiled by the Centre for Economics and Business Research for the website Kelkoo. They warn that air-fares are due to rise by at least 11.5% by 2012 as air carriers are forced to pass on rising operational costs to passengers in an attempt to claw back some of the estimated £1.3 billion in costs due to the ash cloud disruption as well as rising fuel prices.
Those holidaymakers looking to avoid flying due to the constant disruption caused by the erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano should perhaps consider coach holidays or cruise holidays (with a no fly option) instead? You’ll find a wide range of UK coach holidays, European coach tours and Cruise holidays to be found on Door2Tour.com.
With a click of a button, you could soon be relaxing on the beach on Ilfracombe coach holidays, shopping in ‘The Lanes’ with Brighton coach holidays, sun yourself on the golden beaches of Bournemouth or perhaps explore the ‘city of spires’ with coach trips to Oxford. Grab friends and family for coach holidays to Scotland and explore The Highlands this summer or immerse yourself in military history on Edinburgh Tattoo coach trips. Not forgetting beautiful Wales with coach holidays to Llandudno and Tenby or city coach breaks to Cardiff.
Cruise holidays (with a no fly option) are also a good alternative to holidays by air this year when trying to avoid the ash cloud. Discover the beautiful coasts of the UK with a British Isles Discovery tour or spend 11 days cruising around The Emerald Isle. Maybe venture a little further to enjoy Spain Mini Cruise holidays, follow the majestic Rhine River, admire the mighty Fjords of Norway or discover the other gems of The Mediterranean on great-value cruise holidays with Door2Tour.com!
