Two more UK resorts, located in the south coast, decided to join the Euro. Bournemouth and Poole in Dorset are the next two tourist centers after Dunster in Somerset which have started to use euro to attract more visitors there. The main reason for accepting the European monetary unit is to give the British chance to use the euro they have from their previous travel in Europe. The other reason, of course, is attraction of foreign tourists, who will like the idea to save the trouble for money exchange.
The owners of hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions in these three UK resorts believe they will have more clients this summer. Although it might seem as a small start for UK, probably many more owners will change the tactics and policy in future and will join euro payment to move with the times.
One such owner is Mark Crib from Bournemouth – the owner of Urban Beach restaurant. According him there will be much more profit after accepting the euro, because the British really like to travel on holidays in Europe and after their returning in England there will be too much “unwanted euros” in their pockets. Owners like Crib, who accept these euros, give a chance to such people to use them in their country.
On the other hand, another owner in Bournemouth – Cherrie Bythell hopes the euro will help in attraction of more tourists from abroad, who would like the opportunity to pay without exchanging the money. She believes more tourists will come to her Mount Lodge guest house from other European countries this summer.
Antony Brunt,another owner accepted euro in Dunster, is sure that the tourists who will visit his Market Hotel this year will be pleased after finding out they could pay in euro there. This will increase the stream of visitors and clients to him and to other such opened for euro proprietors.
