Brits will be opting for two-week breaks in 2010, it has been found.
Short breaks are out and two-week holidays are back in fashion, it has been revealed.
Research carried out by hotels.com found that the majority of Brits consider a long holiday abroad as an essential expenditure.
Of those polled, 81 per cent claimed they are planning to take a ten to 14-day break next summer.
However, 50 per cent said they will take currency exchange rates into consideration when choosing a destination.
Commenting on the findings, Alison Couper, communications director at hotels.com, said: “People see their holiday as a right not a luxury and while they’ll still be looking for a great deal, they are determined to get away to enjoy a well deserved break and some sunshine.”
In related news, Simon McNamara, director of industry affairs for the European Regions Airline Association, said the past 12 months have been tough for most carriers and noted that travellers are likely to find some bargain flights to Thailand and other destinations in 2010.
