i’d agree no. 1 is defo the biggest issue. corruption was around last year, and so were all these alternative destinations. its seemed to me for some time that the 2 week holiday here is reducing whereas shorter stay breaks are on the increase. its just this has been curtailled this year as these short stay trips will go before the main holiday break.
sorry meant to say that the current exchange rate isn’t helping either, as when the brits get here it feels even more expensive than before
