Obviously us Brits enjoy getting away on holiday – that comes as no great surprise, but this new infographic from Sunlife details just HOW MUCH how much we Brits love our holidays. Looking at this, you could convince your more frugal other half that an impromptu trip to Marseille is well worth the expense.
It’s interesting to see how much more a typical family from Northern Ireland will spend on a holiday compared to a similar family from the East Midlands. Is this due to having more disposable income or just a penchant for staycations amongst East Midlanders? Either way, the more holidays you have the happier you are, so maybe these Northern Irish families are on to something. And I’m sure you’ll agree that holidaying professionally sounds pretty fantastic, although maybe Kylie’s life already resembles a holiday.

Good to see Britain is bouncing back from recession and that we’re valuing the importance of travel. One of the few things we spend money on which makes us richer.
So agree Linzi. I think we’re all a bit more wary about overspending but holidays are SO important to our well-being 🙂
Must admit I was surprised to see Northern Ireland spent the most – somehow expected it to be London or the Home Counties. No surprise to see how happy a holiday makes us!
That should make them almost twice as happy. Wonder if that’s true.
BTW, Zoe, I’m in London. Leaving on Saturday. It’s been lovely, especially the weather.
Wonder how much my part of Scotland spends?!
Thanks for comments Marcia – hope you have had a good time in UK 🙂 Shame we coudln’t meet up.
Well, you could be pleaasantly surprised John 😉
It was a big surprise that East Midlands spends the least! Maybe everyone wants to escape from Nottingham – but I lived there and it was fun 🙂
