Holidaymakers name eurozone their top destination

Prepaid travel cards can be a great way for holidaymakers to safely take their cash abroad on a trip to their favourite destination.

And with new research from M&S Bank revealing the eurozone is still many Britons' top holiday choice, it seems some will be looking to the power of sterling on their foreign break.

The study showed eurozone countries remained people's top choice, although sterling has fallen two percent against the euro in recent times.

Remaining in second place, however, is the US, where sterling has also taken a three percent decline against the dollar.

"Sterling has declined against a number of currencies from this time last year so we'd encourage holidaymakers looking for a good deal to look at the total cost of their holiday, including exchange rates and local costs," commented Paul Stokes, head of travel money at M&S Bank.

Holidaymakers can order their prepaid travel cards ahead of their break, helping them to skip the queue at banks and airports, where rates may not be as competitive.
