#3: City breaks abroad
Unsurprisingly, city breaks are getting more and more popular, as there just so many delights to visit! Rome is a stunning location, and people flock to London and New York for the sights and smells of the big city. 17% of respondents to the Webloyalty study are planning a city break abroad.
#4: Staycation in the UK
Yes, the term ‘staycation’ has been adopted by travel agents to mean travelling within your home country, when it started out as meaning staying at or near home and just taking time out. Regardless, 17% of us are planning on having a ‘staycation’ in the UK this year!
#5: Active holiday abroad
What’s your idea of the perfect holiday? If it includes trekking, water sports or other activities, then you agree with another 6% of us who are taking an active break this year.
