A recent survey revealed that around 85% of Brits were in favour of planning their own holidays abroad instead of opting for the stress free all-inclusive deals.

All-inclusive packages are renowned for offering families a hassle free method of holidaying abroad, however it seems only 15% will take up this offer, with a majority of travellers choosing to plan their own holiday and allowing the spontaneity that a package holiday can sometimes restrict.

The study, carried out by Travelex, involved 2,000 Brits and also reported that for an average holidaymaker’s main holiday their budget lies at around £1,000 per person, with people choosing to create their own holiday experiences rather than all-inclusive getaways.

Travelex UK’s Head of Retail, Elvin Eldic, commented:

"How we holiday has evolved so much over time - from the day trips to seaside towns by train to now spending up to half a year planning the worldwide trip of a lifetime. Our ambitions now are to visit the far and wide therefore this changes our expectations of what we want to get out of our time away.Today, we want to plan our own routes cross countries as well as in and around cities, making the very most of our holidays with exploring what the world has to offer."

The findings of the survey also showed that Scots were the biggest holidaymakers taking around seven or eight holidays a year and over 50% of those involved in the survey are of the opinion that space holiday will be a credible option in the next 100 years.
