Two million Britons are expected to go abroad this Easter, up 20 per cent on last year, with tomorrow expected to be the busiest day at UK airports.
The Timesonline.co.uk reports the most popular destinations for Easter: Spain, the Canary Islands, Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia, with Cuba also getting increased interest ahead of the lifting of the US travel ban.
And A new service has been launched by the Highways Agency that allows live traffic information to be accessed via mobile phones.
The Timesonline.co.uk says: “Families travelling during the Easter break will find it easier to plan their journey with improvements to the Highways Agency website in time for the holiday. The website can now be accessed from mobile phones through the newly constructed mobile platform. The site gives details of any unplanned incidents and shows where motorways and major trunk roads are flowing freely”.
