ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the issues related to the travel industry in Great Britain. He says that 2009 was a tough year for the industry, but 2010 is also far from easy. According to him, general elections and the football World Cup will distract consumers from traveling. However, he says that intense competition and fickle consumers have made the industry very strong and therefore it is in a better shape to cope with the rigors of the year ahead.
