Prices continue to decrease for long-haul destinations. (Luxurious holidays for British)
UK travel firm Hayes & Jarvis say holiday bookings for locations such as Thailand, Dubai and Egypt have increased, as five-star resorts offer more discounts and lower prices.
Niel Alobaidi, Commercial Director for Hayes & Jarvis said: "2010 could be the year when a long haul holiday can finally prove cheaper than a European trip."
The Post Office’s Travel Money Monitor reported January currency purchases up 45% for Thai baht, 23% for UAE Dirham and 17% for the Egyptian pound.
Thailand has seen the biggest growth and sales have increased 70% year-on-year.
Egypt is the most popular destination for 2010, according to Lastminute.com, Thomson, First Choice and ResponsibleTravel.com. (Boom in long-haul holidays as Brits look abroad)

Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Bolivia and Peru are all among the most popular holiday searches, according to online travel provider Expedia.
Spain is no longer 'foreign enough' or cheap enough for many tourists.
