We seem to have come full circle with holidays in recent years. After a few decades worth of steady growth, the overseas holiday looks to be on the decline. There are several potential factors in the fall. The amount of money that some people have available may have declined. Political factors affecting the economy mean that people are reticent to spend the money that they do have, and are inclined to save more instead. Added to this, there are the environmental concerns of relying on air travel when it causes high levels of pollution.
