October is the preferred time for families to go on overseas holidays, a new study has found.

A total of 60% of potential holidaymakers have attributed their choice of October to the better value it offers, as opposed to travelling during the peak summer months.

At the same time, the weather is the motivating factor for 23% who prefer to travel in October, a tendency that explains the surge in the number of tourists heading off to destinations like Dubai and Abu Dhabi which are known for the high temperature and humidity levels during summer.

People travelling abroad during the most convenient times for them will also want to grab a competent travel insurance deal before they embark on their trip.

Spain is still on top in terms of popularity with more searches than any other destination, followed by the US and Italy.
