Brits cutting back on flights due to price rises

The rising price of flights has prompted 50% of Brits to change their travel plans, according to a survey of 2,000 members of European travel portal

The poll found that 10% flew less, 21% stayed at home and 4% did not make any long-distance trips.

But only 16% of Brits changed their travel plans due to climate change, and over 80% are skeptical about global warming.

In fact, 40% believe it is all media hype and only 4% of respondents have cut back on flying because of environmental concerns.

The results also showed that no British travellers chose to stay in ecologically friendly hotels.

In other European countries there is less skepticism, with only 24% of the Germans and 30% of the French thinking climate change is media hype.
