Britons have emerged as the third-highest spenders on holidays, behind China and Norway, of 16 nations surveyed by travel search site Momondo. O
Over a fifth (21%) of people in the UK prefer to spend their spare cash on holidays over other activities, according to the poll.
The survey of 1,000 people found that holidays take preference over spending on home improvements (10%), clothes (14%), health and well-being (6%), dining out (14%), cars (3%) and cultural events (7%).
Ten per cent of consumers plan to spend between £4,000 and £8,000, and 2% plan to spend more than £8,000 on their 2015 summer holiday.
More than a quarter (28%) plan to spend between £1,601 and £4,000 on their annual summer holiday, 21% between £801 and £1,600, 19% between £401-£800 and a further 10% plan to spend under £400. Just 1% plan to spend under £80 and 9% were unsure how much they plan to spend.
Almost a third of Britons prefer to save money on their flight, leaving more to spend on accommodation, dining and cultural experiences.
A Momondo spokesman said: ”Our survey shows traveling is of the upmost importance to Brits, who prefer to save on other things, such as home renovations or dining out, in order to get away.
“A holiday relaxes you in a different way when you take it abroad, far away from daily routines.”
