If holidays in the Eurozone are becoming too pricey, consider travelling to Iceland, traditionally an expensive destination, which is now affordable as the Icelandic krona is so weak. A pound will buy about ISK 200 – that’s almost twice as much as you would have got this time last year.

Iceland Express (Iceland’s budget airline) flies to Reykjavik from Stanstead and will fly from Gatwick from next May. Icelandair fly from Heathrow to Reykjavik or to the ‘capital of the north’, Akureyri. You can travel between these two Icelandic towns with domestic airline Air Iceland, or you can take a bus if it’s not winter
