2015 – Brits head for sun, sea and Spain

The average British holiday in 2015 will be a couple’s sunshine break to Spain, taken out of season, in a hotel with a healthy spending budget to enjoy once we’re there, research has revealed.

A survey of over 2,000 UK adults by Monarch Airlines, the leading airline to leisure destinations, reveals that over half of all breaks booked for 2015 (58%) are for trips to sunny Spain – more than three times as many as its closest rival destination, Greece which took second spot with 17%.

An astounding two thirds of holidays in 2015 (64%) will be taken by couples, well ahead of the  21% of bookings made groups of friends, and family holidays with the children, which account for 19% of this year’s planned breaks.

The most popular months for travel are outside of the school summer holidays, with almost half of those surveyed (45%) booking a break in September, followed closely by getaways in May (32%) and June (31%). Only one in five of those polled were planning to travel in the traditional peak season of July (20%) or August (23%).

The appeal of a real break complete with room service and housekeeping is just too strong for most Brits, with over two thirds (68%) of holidaymakers booking hotel accommodation over a villa or apartment.

The nation’s holidaymakers are also keen to ensure they’re able to make the most of their hard earned break – the most popular amount of spending money to take on holiday is a sizeable £400-£500 per person (18%), with a lucky 12% taking over £1,000 as holiday spends.
