But countries such as Greece and Spain need tourists with money to spend.
The Greek economy desperately needs tourists so it must be better to have tourists flooding in even though the Euro is worth less?
Currency news though is not universally good for British travellers.
In January Switzerland's currency cap against the Euro ended. That led to a sharp and sudden increase in value of the Swiss franc of around 20%. For those taking a skiing holiday or vacation in Switzerland the advice was expect to pay more for everything. Again the same rules apply if you have booked and paid in advance but unless your vacation is an all-inclusive deal you may spend a small fortune on refreshments.
Travel to the US is one area where British currency is not necessarily on the up. The fluctuation value of the US dollar will also affect the spending power of visitors to countries that have the US dollar such islands in the Caribbean.
On the flip-side Americans holidaying in the UK should get great value for their dollars.
Taking a foreign vacation from the UK can be cheaper than trying for a two-week staycation at home. It depends on your travel arrangements, accommodation and destination.
One certainty with some European destinations is good weather which for we Britons is a huge bonus.
But for many British people any type of vacation will be impossible as incomes are squeezed further.
