Winter 2018: Travel in review

Kiwi.com can reveal that thousands of Brits are flying out of the UK this winter to avoid the Arctic blast set to hit the UK. Athens is ancient no more as it takes the hotspot for the number one destination booked. Many of us don’t require the heat but would much rather enjoy hitting the high street shops of New York, whilst more unusual European destinations such as Vienna and Bucharest attract an influx of Brits desiring to experience an authentic, historical trip.

Data released by Kiwi.com shows that solo travel is the most common with 50 per cent of Brits journeying alone compared to 41.5 per cent of solo global travelers. Surprisingly, families aren’t too popular with only 4 per cent of Brits booking as a family which is similar to the rest of world with only 5 per cent traveling together.
