ebookers.com has undertaken research that reveals almost two thirds of British couples end up arguing while on holiday, with as many as a quarter (25%) arguing by the third day of their break.

Topping the list of factors contributing to holiday fall-outs are: Not agreeing how to spend time together (34%), spending too much time together (27%) and spending too much money (27%).

The research, which polled 2,000 Brits, delved into couples’ holiday habits revealing that arguments are starting before couples even set off on holiday, with not being able to agree on the holiday destination (52%) and the frustrations of the holiday booking process (37%) rocking the relationship boat. However, despite couples feeling the tension from spending 24-hours a day with their loved one, more than half (56%) have come back from holiday feeling their relationship was stronger.

The research also found that women are more likely to blame alcohol (26%) for fueling arguments on holiday, compared to men who are more concerned with their partner eying up others on the beach (12%).
