The number of British people making trips to the continent”s capitals has risen to its highest level for two years, according to the International Organisation for Migration. Almost three-quarters of all trips between the UK and Europe were made by people aged 65 and over. However, this is down from 66% in the year to January 2013. The IOM said the figure represented a 2% drop on 2013. The UK is still the biggest market for those travelling abroad. But there was a drop of 4% for people aged 25-34. “More than six in 10 of the journeys took place in the US, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden,” said IOM director general Paul Kenny. The IOM says this reflected a growing middle class, which has become increasingly active on the continent. IOM vice-president of operations, John Sullivan, said the UK was a destination for British and European families trying to make Europe home.”The number of British people making trips to the continent
