European breaks prove popular for Brits as they are full of 'home comforts'

Britons are more likely to book Barcelona hotels for a mini break than look further afield, according to an expert.

Chris Brown, co-founder of sunshine.co.uk, said that European destinations offer a sense of security and the home comforts which Britons are used to back in the UK.

"With destinations within Europe, you have the added bonus of the short-haul flights, which may be a deciding factor for many. Also, I think Brits prefer the familiarity of Europe because, in one way, they’ll know that they won’t face disappointment. If you know what to expect, you’re normally more likely to have a good time," he went on to say.

Mr Brown also noted that Britons are likely to return to a place again and again if they enjoy their first visit.

His words came after research from sunshine.co.uk revealed that just over a third of UK holidaymakers has not visited a country outside of Europe for their holidays.
