The ideal foreign break for British holidaymakers this summer will be on a secluded beach in Europe, according to research.
Abbey conducted a survey of Brits planning summer holidays and found that a quarter plan to head to Europe, despite the current strength of the euro against the pound.
Another trend that emerged in the poll was a dislike for other British tourists, with 57 per cent of people saying they hoped to steer clear of their compatriots while on holiday.
Regular saving appears to be the most common method of paying for a holiday, with 62 per cent of people saying this is how they will finance their trip.
The average Briton reportedly plans to spend around £1,650 on their holidays this year, which equates to around ten per cent of typical disposable income in the UK.
Reza Attar-Zadeh of Abbey said: "Putting away £137 each month to pay for the average summer holiday is no small task, but there’s nothing more satisfying than saving towards a goal."
