Morning Money: The triple threat facing the UK travel industry
Thousands of British families with holidays booked in Turkey are scrambling to cancel their trips following the attempted coup. Travel agents say they have been deluged by calls from worried tourists wanting to cancel after seeing shocking footage emerge from the holiday hotspot. Specialist Turkish travel agents are ruing the 'huge financial impact' that the attempted coup has had on their business over the weekend - and of course, this comes hot on the heels of the Nice atrocity. It's a third blow for the travel industry, already set to be profoundly affected by the Brexit vote. Geoffrey Breeze, Executive Director at the World Travel and Tourism Council joined the Morning Money team to discuss further.
