Many travellers reckon Sydney is the capital of Oz, a poll found
Not knowing Canberra is the capital of Australia and thinking it's Sydney could be excused but many Britons get confused with the capital of Scotland, according to research.
Some quote Glasgow when it should be Edinburgh, according to a poll of 1,318 UK holidaymakers from sunshine.co.uk.
Others that are regularly confused are Barcelona being the capital of Spain instead of Madrid and Cape Town instead of Pretoria in South Africa.
However, people preparing for trips overseas have enough to remember without worrying about capital cities - thankfully
travel insurance cover can help ease some of that pressure.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Clarkson said: "I think it's quite surprising when you take a look at Britons' knowledge of the rest of the world. You would expect even those who aren't well travelled to be able to point out certain places on a world map."
