It’s as the title describes, a self-inflicted pain the UK’s rear but when it comes to tourists & tourism, Brexit is a blessing in political disguise for the region.

Thanks to the UK’s new-found introvertism, Brexit has had a massive impact on the Pound, which has made travel throughout the region MUCH cheaper for travellers, including us Aussies.

Excite Holidays’ Will Gabb, an English born and bred bloke who moved halfway around the world before noticing the UK’s special qualities, says that whilst Brexit may have created uncertainty among some tourists, it’s actually had a positive effect on inbound tourism.

He explained to Travel Advisors at a Sydney event alongside Visit Britain earlier this week, that Brexit debacle “destroyed the pound” and made the UK “a lot cheaper” for travellers.

“As of today, we have accommodation starting from AU$44 in the UK.”
