02 01 2008
As Big Ben chimed midnight on New Year's Eve 2007, Britons looked forward to the coming year with the intention of putting travel at the top of their agendas, it has been suggested.
According to figures from the Financial Services Authority, 48 per cent of Brits are looking to book a holiday in the first month of 2008, ifs School of Finance reports.
Moreover, the study suggests that the same percentage of Brits are also likely to partake in a spot of dieting, with less than a quarter intending to worry about their finances.
The news comes after Sainsbury's Bank reported that 12 million UK consumers intend to book foreign holidays before the end of February.
Independent.ie recently reported that there will be a surge in overseas holiday bookings to sunny spots such as Majorca as people wish to enjoy sunshine on their holidays.
Majorca along with Menorca, Formentera, Ibiza and Cabrera makes up the Balearic Islands.
