Berlin 'is a great city destination'

Backpackers planning to add an intriguing city to their itinerary may wish to consider Berlin.

Jonathan Cudworth, director of product management at Expedia EMEA, said the German city has been proving increasingly popular with travelers.

"It is a western European city but with eastern European prices. It's a city that seems to be very popular along with other Eastern European cities like Riga in Latvia and Tallinn in Estonia," he explained.

Mr Cudworth claimed that destinations such as Berlin are increasing in popularity because travelers want to get more bang for their buck.

He added that the exchange rate between the euro and the pound has been having an impact on the amount that UK backpackers spend on their flights and accommodation.

In other travel news, Heathrow Airport was recently voted as the worst airport in the world by Priority Pass members, with Paris Charles de Gaulle taking second place and LAX scooping third.
