Nearly half of Brits have said that their choice for a spring holiday would be "anywhere with warm weather", the results of a new survey have revealed.
Some 48 percent of respondents to the Holidayextras.com survey said they wanted to enjoy some warm weather this spring, while 31 percent said they would prefer to travel abroad during their spring break, despite the poor exchange rate.
A further 18 percent said they would head to Europe in search of sun, while 13 per cent they would consider booking flights further afield.
Managing editor of Holidayextras.com Mike Whiting said the results showed that most of us "who prefer not to risk the unpredictable British weather".
"I’m not surprised that so many people want guaranteed sunshine this spring, and while some people will certainly be choosing to holiday closer to home, tourism abroad is still high on the agenda for most," he commented.
The survey did reveal, however, that 21 percent of people would consider holidaying in Britain this spring as a cost-cutting alternative.
A separate poll by Holiday Extras recently revealed that British travellers are "outraged" by airline check-in fees.
