The essential things which people need to take into account before heading on holiday have been revealed.

The essential things which people look for before booking flights to South Africa or other locations have been found in a survey.

A poll of travellers carried out by Abta – the travel association has shown that people will see having safe and secure accommodation as their main priority, with 86 per cent stating this option.

Having a financial protection scheme in place was listed as the second most important aspect for a trip with 79 per cent of votes, perhaps suggesting that many will look for travel insurance before heading away.

Finding a low price was ranked tenth, with 53 per cent of votes.

Mark Tanzer, Abta chief executive, said: “Even in a year when customers are tightening their belts the lowest cost is not their number one consideration.”

Those who do take flights to South Africa soon with Emirates could find they are travelling on the airline’s new A380 aircraft.
