Travel add-ons company Holiday Extras released the results of a survey which showed that 48 per cent of British people want to visit a destination that offers guaranteed sunshine this spring.
Nearly one in three (31 per cent) respondents to the poll said they would be willing to travel overseas this year despite the weakness of the pound, although a fifth (21 per cent) would be happy to stay in the UK.
Some 18 per cent of the people surveyed would brave the exchange rate and visit mainland Europe, while 13 per cent said they would consider a long-haul getaway to destination such as Hong Kong and Sydney.
Mike Whiting of Holiday Extras said: "I’m not surprised that so many people want guaranteed sunshine this spring and while some people will certainly be choosing to holiday closer to home, tourism abroad is still high on the agenda for most."
According to another study released by the travel add-ons company recently, 54 per cent of British people would be happy to go away on holiday with their mothers.
