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.

Is it May Day for the pound? Ed Bowsher on the News Review
Time once again for the Consuming Issues news review, with Georgie Frost and Share Radio's Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher.

And on the subject of the pound, travelers exchanging currency at the UK's regional airports are apparently getting less for their pounds than those using London terminals. And bad news for London, as Cambridge is named best place in the UK to work. All this and more, on Consuming Issues, every day from 9am to Midday, right here on Share Radio.

On this edition of This Is Money, Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard-Strauss are in to talk more Brexit fall-out, of course; will Mark Carney’s reassuring tones be enough to steady the ship, as Sterling falls further than we've seen since Walter Mondale was a relevant cultural reference?
