UK tourists shun Greece on euro exit concern

British tourists are shunning Greek holidays in favor of other European destinations on concern the country may exit the euro area, the Financial Times reported on Saturday.

The British paper cited tour operator TUI Travel Plc.

Competitor Thomas Cook Group Plc is advising travelers to Greece to carry small-denomination euro notes to help minimize any disruption should the country exit the single currency, the newspaper reported, citing a statement from the company.
