Britons willing to take cheap breaks on their own
Growing numbers of Britons are putting their inhibitions to the side and opting to take a cheap holiday
on their own.
New research into the holidaying habits of both men and women found that 13 per cent of UK adults have taken a break on their own at some point in the past year.
Interestingly, while many of those choosing to enjoy summer or winter holidays
on their own are singletons, 41 per cent doing so are in a relationship, while around one in four are married, the research, which was carried out by the insurer LV= found.
Commenting on the findings, the firm's John O'Roarke said: "Holidaying abroad alone offers the opportunity to meet new people and get a whole new outlook on life."
The study also found that city breaks are the most popular type of short holidays
among solo travellers, though beach breaks are also a hit.
News of the findings comes in the wake of revelations by travelsupermarket.com that Londoners are the least-organised of all Britons when it comes to packing for a cheap package holiday
or any other type of break.
