June - Several online travel sites have seen a jump in queries from Americans about travel to the United Kingdom since it voted to leave the European Union, a sign so-called "Brexit" and the resulting drop in the value of the pound currency may spur US visits to Britain.



One site found that more Britons were also asking about flights to the United States.



Travel agents, hotel chains and airlines say it is too early to tell if the vote has impacted bookings. Financial analysts at the Buckingham Research Group had predicted a "Brexit" would slow the British economy and airline sales. But some US travel agents are advising travelers to book UK trips now and expect to see a bump in bookings with time.
