Holidaymakers can expect to save anything between 5 and 15 per cent on the cost of travel and accommodation booked this month and pay almost 20 cent less than last year on expenses such as eating out. Experts said British travellers could expect the cheapest holiday prices since before the financial crisis of 2008. It comes as the travel industry prepares for the traditional January surge in bookings.
There is no better way to obtain unbiased travel advice than to contact a local trusted independent travel agent

Established in Southgate since 1935, Scott’s Travel pride ourselves on offering a truly personal one to one service. This personal touch is invaluable to our clients and has undoubtedly been the key to our success over the last 80 years.
According to new research by ABTA over the past 12 months there has been a shift away from booking directly with service providers', most notably, to booking with a local travel agent. Mark Tanzer, ABTA Chief Executive said: “It is encouraging to see more holidaymakers using travel professionals to book their holiday. When family finances are tight we know that they are also looking for that extra security that booking with a travel agent can bring. People may also perhaps be realising that DIY holidays are time consuming to put together and full of pit falls, and, value having a professional retail travel agent do the hard work for their holiday.”
At Scott's Travel we offer a high degree of efficiency, security and personal service seldom matched by other retail travel agents, and this reputation has spread far beyond the immediate locality so that our client base now spreads not only across the UK but also internationally, and is increasing annually despite strong competition from direct marketing and the internet. Our client list includes professional firms, educational establishments, public corporations as well as private travellers and clients looking for value for money air travel, holidays, hotels, travel insurance, etc., etc.
The high percentage of repeat bookings and recommendations are testament to many years of customer satisfaction and our widely travelled and well trained staff ensure that our clients receive the best firsthand knowledge and advice possible when booking their travel arrangements. So whatever your destination, we will work on your behalf to create your perfect holiday or business travel this year.
"The whole team at Anthony & Webb - particularly Martin - offered us a fantastic service as buyers. Striking the right balance between professional yet personable that many agents struggle to achieve, Martin was great to deal with. He is knowledgeable about the property market and the local area. He went above and beyond answering our questions about the sale of our own property too that our own agent was no help with! If we ever sell our beautiful new house we wouldn't consider listing it with any agency other than Anthony & Webb."
