Escape the budget blues with Exodus - Mar 12
Budget Day is here again, and with households suffering the biggest squeeze since the 1920s, Wednesday's Budget is unlikely to put a smile on many people's faces. With savings squashed and incomes dwindling, it's time to plan a quick getaway.
In a recent survey* Exodus, the UK's leading adventure tour operator, has found that 50 per cent of respondents would rather take a holiday of a lifetime than splash out on a new kitchen, buy a sports car or blow out on a trip to Vegas.
