46% planning May breaks…

Travelmole have reported on a poll of British travellers by TripAdvisor, an extract of which is below…

'Most holidaymakers would prefer to have bank holidays more evenly spread throughout the year, a survey shows.

Almost three quarters of people asked want a more even spread of public holidays, according to the poll of more than 500 British travellers by TripAdvisor.

Yet spring breaks remain a popular time to get away with 46% saying they are planning a break during the May italianafarmacie.com/viagra-soft-tabs-farmacia-senza-ricetta/ holidays, a slight increase on last year.

Of these, a quarter will be taking a long weekend break, 18% a week or longer and 10% a day trip.

Forty five per cent of respondents said they avoided travel on a public holiday.

Seventy-eight per cent said increases in fuel prices will not affect plans, neither will the airport delays of 2007 for 91 per cent, or concerns about the environment for 88 per cent.

 

Almost half said that taking a break in May is a welcome relief after the long winter. Eighteen per cent said it was because it is less crowded and 15 per cent indicated that prices were more reasonable than summer. '

With the rain and hail we are experiencing in the UK at the moment, going overseas for your May break has to be a more attractive option especially as the Med has started to see temperatures in the high 20's.
