Average number of holidays abroad per person in the UK 2011-2018

Average number of holidays abroad per person in the United Kingdom (UK) between 2011 and 2018

Average number of holidays abroad per person in the UK 2011-2018 UK residents took an average of 1.6 holidays abroad in 2018. Overall, residents took 3.4 holidays per person, including domestic vacations within the United Kingdom.
Are people taking fewer holidays abroad?

Despite figures showing a decrease in the average number of overseas holidays, there is yet to be evidence of a drastic change in the behavior of British travelers. The number of holiday trips taken abroad has increased each year, and Brits appear to be as keen as ever to travel. The rising price of international travel and the impact of Brexit however are issues that potentially threaten future travel trends, pushing more travelers to vacation at home.

The rise of the ‘staycation‘

Recent austerity measures and economic uncertainty in the UK led to much media discussion around the rise in travelers opting to vacation closer to home in order to circumvent costs. Over 50 million domestic holiday trips (involving at least one overnight stay) are taken in Britain each year, although figures showed a decline in 2018 compared to the previous year. Participation in tourism has generally declined, however statistics show that outbound travel has remained more popular and that many travelers take multiple trips both in the UK and abroad each year.
