It seems that no matter how many places are on our 'bucket lists', when it comes down to booking a trip many of us play it safe, choosing to re-visit a holiday destination again and again.
In a report by lastminute.com, 70 per cent of us have unfulfilled travel dreams but one in five of us (18 per cent) doesn’t believe we’ll ever achieve them. Nearly two thirds (62 per cent) of us take the exact same holiday again and again, opting for lazing on the beach year after year, with the Spanish Islands, France, USA, Spanish mainland and Italy making up the top five destinations for the British public in 2016 again.
Despite our holiday fantasies, in 2016 the same destinations dominate the top five as in 2015. Spain, France and the USA are the top three destinations for Brits this year, with the only big change being the USA moving from fifth to third with 14 per cent of Brits planning a trip there compared to 8 per cent in 2015.
Perhaps as a result of the relatively strong pound, staycations are down 5 per cent with more people taking advantage of cheap European holidays - only 40 per cent of Brits plan a holiday in their own country this year, the least of all Europeans, compared to 60 per cent of Italians.
Are you travelling out of your comfort zone this year, or do you have an 'if it isn't broke, don't fix it' attitude to holidays?
