Mexico has proven to be a particulary popular destination for UK travellers in 2011. A survey done by the Post Office has shown that demand for the Mexican currency increased by almost 150% in 2011.
The increased demand for Mexico holidays to resorts such as Cancun has been attributed to low cost flights and excellent deals on all inclusive stays at the resorts hotels. British Airways have also proved to be keen on this growth area and have subsequently begun direct flights from London gatwick to Cancun.
Mexico is not the only winner according to the Post Office survey. Other destinations such as Barbados, Australia and Thailand have also proven popular with the Post office Bureau de Change.
Is this survey accurate or are the Post Office now simply handling more currency transactions generally?
