Caribbean tourism well served despite XL closure

Travel Counsellors British holidaymakers wishing to take a break in the Caribbean are still "fairly well served" despite the closure of holiday operator XL, a leading expert has claimed recently.

XL Leisure Group, which contained a charter and scheduled airline as well as various tour operators, was placed in administration in June 2008.

The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) has stated that popular winter destinations in the Caribbean were "better served" before the demise of XL.

However, Derek Moore, chairman of AITO, said that the Caribbean still proves consistently popular among British holidaymakers, alongside North Africa.
