According to new research, budgets for holidays differ by up to £280 per person depending on their age. The most expensive and longest holidays are taken by those over 50 and the cheapest and shortest by those aged between 18 and 29.

TravelSupermarket surveyed 5,000 British holidaymakers on their holiday habits for the coming year. Not surprisingly (to us anyway), self-catering accommodation in cottages and villas were most popular across the largest age range. Those aged between 30 and 39 were the family focused group, and loved beach locations (37%) and villa holidays (18%).

Those between 40 and 49 were also family focused, tending to holiday with older children or grandchildren. They also loved the beach (39%) and self-catering accommodation (23%), both of which can easily be combined in a holiday cottage or villa holiday!
