Millions are set to escape the bad weather for sunnier climes this Easter
Adverse weather is moving across the UK as around 1.5 million people are getting set to head overseas for an Easter break.
Spain is the top choice for Britons heading abroad, travel organisation Abta has revealed, with Cyprus and Tunisia also proving popular.
Those heading out on city breaks favour Paris, Dublin, Amsterdam, New York and Rome, while Geneva is the most popular spot for skiers.
People staying at home over the bank holiday face the prospect of traffic congestion, even though the Highways Agency has completed many roadworks on England's motorways and major A-roads.
People travelling within the UK will also have to contend with engineering works on the railways and, although there will not be as many train services replaced by buses as this time last year, several major routes will nevertheless be experiencing restricted services.
The potential disruption acts as a timely reminder for those who are lucky enough to be heading abroad to ensure they have appropriate
travel insurance to provide peace of mind for a relaxing trip this Easter.
