    A demonstrator wrapped in the EU flag takes part in a protest opposing Britain's exit from the European Union in Parliament Square following yesterday's EU referendum result, London, on June 25, 2016.

    While the world mulls over the impact of the British vote to exit the European Union, travelers and the travel industry are taking stock and making plans, NBC News reported.

    For anyone who has been thinking about visiting London and other destinations in the United Kingdom, agents have a simple piece of advice: Go now.

    "In the short term, it will be business as usual, except tourists will probably get an even better value now than they have in decades," said Jack Ezon of luxury leisure travel agency Ovation Vacations.

    The British pound took a beating after Thursday's vote, and is hovering at trading levels lower than they've been in the past 30 years.

    But wherever the pound settles, U.S. visitors to the United Kingdom — for now, anyway — will get a lot more for their travel dollars, especially in London, a traditionally expensive city for visitors.
