Intrepid Travel blame Donald Trump’s election for a reduction in sales for the UK and Australia

Trump has been criticised for policies such as his attempted travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries and for making wild accusations against the media.

Intrepid chief executive James Thornton said: “We’ve definitely seen a drop in outbound demand for the US.

“It is down around 20-30 per cent since Trump took office. That said, there are other factors at work here, such as the rising dollar, which means that its more expensive to fly to the US now.”
