The research that has conducted by Trainline has indicated that the travellers belonging to UK have spent £3,417 per head as compared with the French who end up spending about £3,786. On the other hand the Germans spend about £4,261 while Italians are known to shell out about £5,974, as discovered by this survey.
Also, the research also found that the Brits actually enjoyed the least holidays that accounted for about 3.1 holidays or short breaks in 2016.
However, Italians took 5.4 holidays, Germans 3.8 and the French enjoyed 3.3 holidays this year. As per this survey, the average amount that was spent on holidays was £239.7 billion.
Apart from that, the poll also found that people of the UK were not quite thrilled about travelling in their own country.
Only 10% of people did not travel within the UK at all. But then, 1% of Italians preferred travelling in Italy, 6% Germans in Germany and about 35 French were interested in travelling within their own country. Rather, all of them were keen to travel to Spain. And, about a third of all age groups said that they had visited Spain last year.
Except Italians, almost all nationalities selected Spain as the most popular destination for holidaying in 2016.
The poll also pointed to the fact that a majority of Britons and wider Europeans liked to travel in couples. A closer majority preferred family travel. For a large number of travellers from Italy, France and UK, the main aim for travelling was to discover a brand new destination.
This study has also revealed that the Italians, Germans and French were far more interested in travelling as compared to Britons, for the purpose of admiring natural beauty and sceneries.
It has also been found that British holidaymakers are more fond of spending their time relaxing on the beach that comprises about 39% while about 36% prefer sightseeing.
