Currency rates make Bali the best holiday spot for British bargain-hunters, according to a travel survey. But where is the most expensive?
Today's ruling the EU court on the duty of care owed to passengers by airlines is significant. Our guide to how it could affect you.
The airlines like Ryanair argued it was an "act of God" but today an "act of court" dramatically clarified passengers rights.
Roughly a third of British travellers take their own food away with them.
As many as 35% of tourists said they had packed food when they travelled on their last trip overseas, a survey by online travel agency sunshine.co.uk found.
The most popular reason for taking food away on holiday was to save money, followed by admissions of being fussy eaters or not finding the fare they liked.
Some travelled with treats as they knew they would crave them if they did not take them. Others said they took food for their children while others had special dietary requirements.
Cereal and bread topped the list of food taken away on trips, followed by chocolate, crisps, pasta and tea bags. Other items included biscuits and tinned food. Only 21% of those who admitted taking food away with them were on self-catering breaks.
A total of 1,996 people aged 18 and over from around the UK were questioned. Each had been on holiday abroad in the past 12 months.
Motorists are falling foul of a new insurance fraud scheme dubbed "flash for crash".
The latest tactic sees cars lying in wait for victims to exit from shops, car parks or fuel stations and sees fraudsters flash their headlights, offering the victim a right of way to join a main road, before speeding up to ensure their car is hit side-on.
Fraud experts Asset Protection Unit has warned that some 380 false insurance claims are made daily, costing the motor industry £1.7 million a year and pushing up insurance premiums.
The Highway Code recommends that drivers do not take flashing headlights as a signal to proceed, despite most motorists using the signal.
Steve Cleverdon, who broke his neck in Malaysia, has told ITV Daybreak about his experience trying to find a hospital without having insurance. The total bill was £4,000.
Young people, traveling abroad, often assume the NHS or British authorities will help them if they get hurt or injured abroad.
Victoria Bacon from ABTA, has told ITV Daybreak: "If something does go wrong you're going to have to pick up the cost of medical bills yourself."

Many people travel abroad without insurance and that means if they are injured or fall ill it could be very expensive, it could even be a matter of life and death.
Many don't realise that the Government will not pay their medical bills abroad or pay for repatriation.
I strongly urge everyone to take out comprehensive travel insurance so they can enjoy their holiday without risking their health or their savings.
- A quarter of Brits (24%) are now travel abroad without insurance.
- 4 out of 5 (82%) young people admit to taking part in more adventurous behaviour on holiday - yet fewer than half (45%) check that their insurance covers risky pursuits.
- 16% mistakenly believe that travel insurance is unnecessary as the UK Government will pay for their treatment if they become ill abroad.
- 17% (and a third of 15-24 year olds) wrongly assume that when travelling in Europe, they dont need insurance because they have a European Health Insurance Card.
- Almost half of Brits (47%) mistakenly believe it would cost £5,000 or less to treat a broken leg in the USA despite the actual figure being more than eight times than that.
Young Brits are putting their health and pockets at risk by failing to get adequate holiday insurance or check they are properly covered, according to new research.
Furthermore, the FCO has also found that 4 out of 5 (82%) young people admit to taking part in more adventurous behaviour on holiday - yet fewer than half (45%) check that their insurance covers risky pursuits.
There are reports this evening of traffic stretching up to 50 miles on the M25 in Surrey.
Delays are anticlockwise between J20 and J6, with travel time more than three hours.
Many of those stuck have taken to Twitter, including cage fighter Alex Reid:
I love traffic and I love the M25 more! Arrrrrrrrh! http://t.co/Lkz3Kaa8Tr
Stuck in car park known as the m25 @sloughsynchro
I hate the M25. Might as well be a car park #justsaying
Air passengers will today be given the first indication of how fares will change over the next five years at the capital's three main airports.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will outline its initial proposals for how much airlines will be charged for using London's three main airports between 2014 and 2019.
The plans will have an impact on fares at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports - the only three airports that are regulated by the CAA.
A final decision is due in January next year.
