More than half of Britons will be delaying plans to jet off to foreign locations until the autumn or later
A new survey by online travel agency www.sunshine.co.uk has found that more than half (56%) of Britons will be delaying plans to jet off to foreign locations until the autumn or later amid forecasts of a hot summer in the UK.
The cheaper cost of off-peak breaks is another reason people are delaying their plans to head abroad.
The survey could mean an increase in the number of people taking out
travel insurance later in the year.
Nearly a tenth (8%) of the 1,092 British holidaymakers questioned said they were postponing their holidays in order to get enough time to set aside cash for it.
However, 43% said they had already booked their holiday.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Brown said: "The recent spout of warm weather here in the UK has obviously made many people optimistic about the impending British summertime and many obviously want to stick around to make the most of the good weather."
