Following the launch of its annual global travel survey, which revealed that more than a quarter of us prefer to spend our money on travelling, momondo.co.uk, questioned 23,149 people from 23 different countries about their travel habits and analysed more than 400 million searches made on the site to reveal the ‘most wanted holiday’ for 2017.

The results discovered some interesting insights, including the fact that the majority of holidaymakers (66%) prefer travelling with their partner, whereas 43% would rather spend their holiday with friends, and more than a quarter of us share photos from our holiday on social media while we are away.

Other findings revealed that we book the flight 69 days in advance and price is the deciding factor when it comes to what ticket we book.

It's the same case when choosing hotels, as 55% list price as the most important factor. When it comes to accommodation, we book hotels in our home country just 22 days before the trip, whereas hotels abroad are booked 44 days in advance.

Besides the global statistics, the company looked into the most sought-after destination among Brits, which was Bangkok and found that Bali is also on the rise.

The company's marketing manager, UK and Australia, Neil James Cartwright, said: “Bangkok remains the most searched destination among Brits as this city with its stable warm weather, electrifying city life and restaurant meals, which on average cost 91% less than in London, make it great for a holiday throughout the year.

"For travels in 2017 however, another eastern destination is on the rise; Bali. With a 191% increase in searches this year compared to 2016, the tropical Indonesian island seems to have caught the interest among Brits. Bali is clearly the destination trending the most among the 50 most searched.”
