Will Brexiteers be staying home?


While it's not yet clear just how or just when (and possibly if) the UK will leave the EU, it's already become a hot topic in the travel business.

Brexit issues have been cited by Thomas Cook directors as one of the reasons for the company's collapse, by the French government in postponing its goal of 100 million foreign visitors by 2020, and for a variety of other dire effects.

But on the homefront, according to at least one recent report, the British public's confusion over Brexit may be having a positive effect on domestic travel and lodging businesses. A YouGov study, commissioned by an association of boutique inns, with 41% of respondents saying that post-Brexit they'd be more likely to consider a holiday in the UK, and only 19% said they would not be.
