Brits missing holidays abroad

British holidaymakers haven't been able to get away for 630 days.

A new survey by easyJet has revealed that the average person has not been able to get away to a sunny holiday for over 600 days, but people are keen to get away as soon as they can.

Over two thirds (67 per cent) of people said that being stuck at home during lockdown had given them even more of a desire to get away whilst over a third (35 per cent) of people confessed they had already booked a summer holiday.

Popular destinations for Brits travelling abroad in the coming months includes the likes of Faro, Lisbon, Málaga, Gibraltar, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Madeira, Porto and Malta.

Johan Lundgren, easyJet's chief executive, said: "We know how much people value travel and can see the pent up demand every time restrictions are lifted. This research shows just how much of a priority travel is after such a long period where it has been out of bounds. Brits cannot wait to get away on a sun filled holiday and have been saving hard to make their holiday a trip to remember. We look forward to welcoming customers on board for a well-deserved getaway and remain hopeful that the Government will add many more European countries onto the Green list and allow safe travel this summer."
