Short breaks are out and two-week holidays are back in fashion, it has been revealed.
Research carried out by hotels.com found that the majority of Brits consider a long holiday abroad as an essential expenditure.
Of those polled, 81 per cent claimed they are planning to take a ten to 14-day break next summer.
However, 50 per cent said they will take currency exchange rates into consideration when choosing a destination.
Commenting on the findings, Alison Couper, communications director at hotels.com, said: "People see their holiday as a right not a luxury and while they'll still be looking for a great deal, they are determined to get away to enjoy a well deserved break and some sunshine."
