Despite the rising costs of various amenities that are affecting people's finances, Brits are still not being put off their summer holidays, according to new research.
Research from travel community company TripAdvisor, found that despite the constant news of house price drops and rises in fuel and food bills, Brits' appetite for a summer holiday remain undiminished.
Those that are going to take a holiday this summer should make sure they take out travel insurance so they are not faced with the cost of replacing lost or damaged items on returning from their break or having to stump up for medical bills when on holiday.
A high percentage (61 per cent) of the 4,000 surveyed were intending to visit a beach destination this summer to soak up some rays, with 66 per cent of the overall study stating that relaxing was their intended main holiday activity.
TripAdvisor European communications manager, Ian Rumgay, said: "A summer holiday is a must-have for the British public. It may be a last hurrah but seems that we are determined to have a good time this summer, no matter what the cost."
