According to a new research from ATOL three million people are set to book their holiday this week due to December’s snowy weather which has accelerated the holiday booking period for one in five consumers.
The spike in booking was because of ‘staying organised’ and ‘workplace boredom’ for those who escaped the worst of the weather in the south.
The latest data from the holiday protection scheme after surveying more than 4,000 people across the UK, revealed the that popularity of the USA being stronger than ever, although the weak pound raised the cost.
It reflected over a million people were looking to travel across the pond in 2018 than last year.
The study shows millennials after enjoying adventourous gaps were now keen to holiday to places closer to home.
It was found that the European destinations very much in vogue for the younger generation and Spain, Italy and Greece were all top destinations.
Portugal rapidly closed the gap due to buzzing food scene, photogenic cityscapes and Port.
However, the survey was in contrast to the older generation who are increasingly using retirement to travel to far flung destinations.
The popular choices for them are New Zealand and Australia.
