Britain topped the list of 13 major countries based on an adult’s likelihood of travelling to foreign countries. 84% of us travel abroad regularly, far more than Americans of whom just under half travel abroad. Two thirds of French adults like to travel but it’s people from South Korea and India who came after Britain in the poll with Brazilians the least likely to travel abroad.
Brits tend not to go abroad for the culture and were less mindful of safety and security risks.
The Travelsupermarket website found that the Spanish islands of Majorca, Tenerife, Ibiza, and Lanzarote were among our favourite destinations.
“British travellers are more likely than any others to purchase insurance and pack a first aid kit, yet are more relaxed about the local crime rate or safety standards of public transport”
