Nearly 12 million Britons are choosing to go on driving holidays in order to save costs, research by AA Personal Loans has found.
Almost half of Britons (46 per cent) are opting to spend at least one of their holidays in the UK this year, with three out of four (75 per cent) saying they plan to use their car for trips within the UK and Europe in order to cut costs or avoid travel stress.
Some respondents also said they were opting to avoid air travel this year because they are concerned about the impact this has on the environment.
Mark Huggins, head of AA Personal Loans, said: "Our survey shows people are being smart with their money when booking holidays this summer. People are also thinking carefully about buying smaller cars to save money but it is important to make sure the car you choose is suitable for going on long holiday journeys, with enough room for all your passengers and luggage."
Londoners were most likely to opt for driving holidays to avoid stress, while the Welsh would choose them to cut costs.
