LONDON, August 16, 2011 -

- travelmatch has released an infographic that explores the choices British families make when planning their trips abroad -

Today travelmatch, an online travel company, released an infographic detailing the choices the average British family makes when going abroad on holiday. Brits use the company’s revolutionary search engine to tailor holiday plans to their exact preferences - data from these searches was used to find the typical British family trip.

The infographic follows the story of Mr X and his average British family, as they go on a beach holiday to the ever-popular Greek Islands. The data shows that the average family departs from Manchester, between 6 and 10 in the morning, to an all inclusive hotel with a spa, a pool, a hotel bar and a kids’ club.

While the characters are fictional, the infographic represents the attitudes of the average British family. travelmatch say it will help tourists plan their next trip, while also providing an insight into what holidays in 2012 will prove most popular.

Alex Francis of travelmatch comments: “British travellers have access to a huge array of options when it comes to booking their holidays. We wanted to demonstrate this, while also showing what the average British family chooses to do when they go abroad.”

“This infographic should be a great resource for travellers. Families can see what the most common departure time is, and perhaps buck the trend to get through the airport at a quieter hour; or see what destinations have proven most popular in the past, for sure-fire success when picking an all inclusive holiday in 2012.”
