More than three quarters of families opted to take a package holiday this year, with all-inclusives being the most popular type of break.

Almost a third of those polled by Holiday Hypermarket (32.65%) said all-inclusive holidays were their preferred choice of trip.

Self-catering came next with 26.80%, followed by half board at 16.40%.

Combined, this was 75.85% of the 2,000 respondents – well ahead of the 18.30% who said that they would look to book their flights and accommodation separately.

The agency said its own bookings of package holidays by families rose by almost 17% year-on-year.

Marketing manager, Ian Crawford, said: “Travelling with children can be complicated enough, so having someone take care of important details such as transfers is really reassuring.”

The popularity of the package is backed up by the Office for National Statistics, which recently revealed that the number of Britons taking package holidays abroad is on the increase - from 15.3 million in 2013 to 15.9 million last year.

The study also found that 76% of children are using digital devices when travelling with only 5.20% saying they use no method of entertainment at all.
