New research from Your Golf Travel
Shows despite Brexit more golfers will be travelling in 2018 than ever befo
Back in 2016 when Britain voted to leave the European Union many were left with questions of what the future holds, especially for UK travellers. But a recent poll from Your Golf Travel reveals that golfers are going to be travelling more than ever in 2018.
With Brexit negotiations now in full swing, Your Golf Travel have looked at how it may impact those travelling abroad and the response from golfers across Britain looking to play golf overseas in 2018.
The first issue was the weakening of the pound. Almost immediately after the referendum, the pound dropped dramatically against the dollar and euro, thus raising concerns about the cost of travelling abroad.
Despite these worries, 2017 was another record-breaking year for Your Golf Travel, as they sent more golfers around the world than ever before.
But what about the prospects for 2018?
YGT recently conducted a survey to see what their customers had planned for next year and 83% said they are planning to go on more golfing trips in 2018 than in 2017.
So, it looks like golfers will be taking to the fairways around the world no matter what, but why? Has anything changed?
Despite everything that has transpired since the referendum, the official date that Britain is due to leave the European Union isn’t until 29th March 2019.
This will cool any of the initial concerns amongst travellers. Yes, the pound is weaker, but is recovering and unlikely to fall significantly in the next year like it did post-referendum.
While there are golf courses to be played, golfers will play them.
