The article presents the author's views on negative predictions concerning the travel industry in Great Britain. According to the author, despite the predictions of executive Mike Greenacre and the travel agency Euromonitor International that the British travel market will not improve until 2010, travel agents should be optimistic about the market as people will always need a holiday. The author opines that the travel agents should be prepared for change in booking patterns.
