The article reports that domestic tour operators in Great Britain are reporting of strong Easter sales after the declining value of the pound against the euro. Richard Carrick, chief executive officer at Hoseasons said that the pound's fall against the euro means that the British who visited Europe a year ago got 15% more for their money. Tour operator Superbreak's sales director Ian Mounser said that he had seen a 10% increase in Easter bookings, which could rise to 15% as consumers book late.
