Propose on holiday if you want the lady to say yes - that's the romantic verdict from's customers.

The poll found that 42% of people said they'd love their partner to propose on holiday - twice the number who said they'd prefer the magic moment to take place in the UK (21%).

A lucky 14% didn't have to wish - their partner had already popped the question during a special break. The idea of a sun-soaked moment to remember particularly appeals to women, with 51% of them saying they'd prefer a holiday proposal compared with just 33% of men who would prefer a traditional UK proposal.

But 16% of those polled weren't interested at all, describing themselves as 'not the marrying kind'. Not surprisingly 8% more men than women admitted to marriage not being for them.

The operator undertook the poll to promote its new honeymoon packages, where couples who book an airport hotel can add a variety of extras to their booking to make their stay even more special.

As examples, at the Gatwick Hilton the honeymoon package includes Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries in the room, access to the executive lounge, where guests can tuck into free drinks and canapes, continental breakfast with two glasses of bucks fizz, either in your room or in the executive lounge, private check-in, bathrobes and slippers and Meet and Greet parking at the airport.

Anthony Clarke-Cowell, head of product innovation and merchandising, said: "It's no surprise that for many people, a holiday is the perfect time to propose - in a place they love, when they're feeling happy and relaxed. And our honeymoon packages are the perfect way to get a once in lifetime holiday off to a wonderful start."
