LONDON – With many British holidaymakers leaving Britain, some will travel across the Channel in search of a new home, while others will head south, to France.
The number of UK nationals travelling across the Mediterranean has risen by more than a third over the past year, with many Britons choosing to go to France, with France hosting the first-ever EU-wide migration conference this week.
French authorities said they were expecting around 8,000 people to travel to the Mediterranean this year, while officials said the number of EU citizens heading to the EU would be around 3,000.
Many Brits are also expected to head to Greece and Spain for holidays, which are popular with Brits, in an attempt to make the trip to Europe cheaper.
Some Britons are taking the opportunity to take advantage of the European migrant crisis by visiting holiday destinations in Europe.
There is an increasing number of British nationals travelling to Europe, as the EU migration crisis worsens and people are choosing to stay put in the UK, according to British travel website Expedia.
Expedia said the UK was the second-most popular destination for UK nationals with an average of 5,000 Brits a month staying there, after Spain.
British people are also travelling to France for holidays.
“There are an increasing amount of British holiday makers heading to France to take a break from the economic chaos, which has seen millions of people lose their jobs, the economy is in the toilet and the government is having difficulty passing any legislation, even as its austerity measures continue to worsen,” Expedia said.
Britain’s tourism minister, Chris Grayling, has said he expects the number to double over the next two years as the country tries to cope with the economic and social impact of the crisis.
However, the number still remains a fraction of the number coming to Europe for holidays every year.
More than 2.2 million Britons visited France in the first half of this year alone, up from 1.9 million in the same period in 2014.
At the end of January, there were more than 1.2 billion Brits in France.
The number who are visiting France has increased from 7,400 in 2013 to 9,000 in 2015.
A total of 2,000 Britons have been killed in France during the crisis, while more than 700,000 have been affected by the disease, according the French ministry of health.
In recent months, the French government has imposed strict new regulations to tighten security at tourist attractions in the capital Paris, as a result of the growing number of Britons who are leaving Britain.
Authorities have said that as the number goes up, the threat level will be raised, so the authorities are more alert.
For British tourists who are going to France this year it is a safe bet that you can expect the cost of a ticket will be considerably less, with prices down from the peak of £250 for a round-trip from London to Paris in January, according travel website Flights Unlimited.
Last week, French authorities announced that they will ban British tourists from buying tickets to the country, as they have become a major source of tax fraud, according The Sun.
Officials said that the number and amount of fraudsters was rising, and would be stepped up in the future.
Buses will also be prohibited from carrying British nationals, unless they have a valid passport.
