“Many schools have scrapped London, Paris and Berlin as destinations and are favouring smaller cities, like Valencia or Glasgow. Some schools are avoiding all European capitals.”
What makes them think that Valencia and Glasgow can’t or won’t be targets of Islamic terrorism? There was an Islamic jihad bombing at Glasgow’s airport in 2007.

According to the researchers, parents play an important role when it comes to deciding a destination.
