Brits happy to fly at inconvenient times to save money

British travellers are happy to fly at inhospitable hours to cut the cost of their holiday, according to the latest travel trends report from Travelzoo.

Its survey of 1,600 UK travellers found half would actively try to save money by sacrificing convenient travel times.

More than half (54%) said they would try to save money on whether they receive in-flight meals, while (70%) said they would try to save money on baggage costs.

The survey also showed that 55% plan to take an all-inclusive trip this year, slightly down on 59% who booked an all-inclusive trip in the last few years.

The number of those who plan to book flight and accommodation separately across all types of trip dropped from 72% last year to 60% this year, supporting research by ABTA that package holidays are on the rise.
