easyJet reveals the nation’s travel trends for 2013 following a poll with easyJet travellers, across the UK

Key findings from the survey show that

  • Despite the recession 86 per cent of Britons plan to take two or more overseas breaks in 2013 – up six per cent year on year – with 25 per cent actually planning four or more
  • Beach breaks are still the nation’s  favourite with 53 per cent of people planning a sun holiday next year
  • A quarter of us will use our main holiday to spend time with friends and family, while one in ten prefer to holiday alone
  • When asked which new destination they’d like to explore – 35 per cent said the Greek Islands

Beach holidays are still the nation’s favourite according to an easyJet poll of 660 travellers from England, Scotland and Wales. Over half of us would like a break in the sun in 2013, with 35 per cent planning a city break as a secondary trip.

Closer to home the Olympic effect is still prominent, with 49 per cent of travellers picking London as their preferred option for a ‘staycation’.

Paul Simmons, UK director for easyJet, said: “The UK’s appetite for overseas travel remains resilient to the recession – with a remarkable 86 per cent of travellers planning two or more overseas breaks in 2013. Beach holidays are still a firm favourite, with the Greek Islands revealed as a top destination for 2013 alongside the ever popular Alicante, Faro and Malaga”.
