The cost of a term-time holiday has just gone up

118 parents in the Doncaster region have just been fined for taking their children out of school during term-time, of these 26 now face court hearings for refusing to pay the £50 fine.

Ethics aside, the fining of parents for taking their children out of school could have some serious repercussions for the holiday industry. Traditionally the cheapest holidays were had to be had during term-time, but add a £50 fine, or a court hearing to the price and its not looking like so much of a great deal anymore.
