This is despite the pound hitting new highs for 2021 over the weekend.
On Monday, Mr Brown said: “Sterling had its best day against the euro since last December yesterday, rallying to three week highs.
“This is as the market reacted positively to the weekend’s election results, and the perceived lower risks of a second Scottish independence referendum.”
The ban on international travel was lifted on Monday, May 17, meaning that Britons are now permitted to holiday abroad.
The UK’s travel traffic lights system means that holidaymakers can travel to “green” countries without having to quarantine on return.
These destinations include Gibraltar, Iceland, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand.
However, travel experts have warned that “extra caution” is due in the coming weeks when booking holidays and swapping travel money.
“Extra caution and careful planning will be really important when it comes to planning holidays this year – and keeping abreast of the latest updates will be key.
“Financial safety when travelling must also be top of mind for consumers. Sudden changes and cancellations, which remain likely could put travellers at risk if the right precautions aren’t taken.”
In other travel news, British Airways launched £40 PCR tests yesterday to help drive down the price of COVID-19 testing before travel.
BA’s CEO Sean Doyle said: “We are working hard to drive down the costs, so we just launched a £40 PCR test today.
“We are working with the Government and are pushing them to drive down the costs of testing.”
