A recent statistics published by the Visit USA Association has revealed that during this year, Britain has been seeing a record number of visitors from Britain.
The Telegraph has reported that based on the figures noted through May, there was not less than 11 percent rise in the number of UK visitors to America, when compared to the number recorded during the same time last year.
The article in the newspaper suggests that the increase was mainly on account of the conversion rate of pound to dollar that has become highly favourable now. In addition, the Brits appear to take a great advantage of the good vales presently available in accommodation and shopping.
According to Peter Moss, chairman of visit USA, the results obtained so far for this year confirm that the year 2008 is not a very good year for the tourism industry of the US.
He further continued, "The figures really do support the fact that 2008 may well go on to become the biggest year ever for UK travel to the USA - possibly as high as five million visitors."
Earlier during this week, British Airways has revealed that the figures offering similar results. The report identifies four of its US destinations constituting the top five global destinations of the carrier.
Most notably, Brits heading to US for holiday find the best value for their money with respect to issues particularly like car hire. In addition, the UK Post Office has recently reported that the US is the cheapest destination in terms of diesel and petrol fuel.
