Despite the fact that traveling to America is a major bargain for the Brits (the dollar is at an historically low point right now against the pound), UK travelers are electing to spend their quid elsewhere. In fact, travel to the US is still 11% off from 2000 when the UK economy was not nearly as strong as today. And it's not because British subjects aren't traveling. Travel to Turkey, India and New Zealand have doubled over that time.

The Discover America Partnership is highlighting this news in an effort to gain needed support for the Travel Promotion Act of 2007 (S. 1661).
