As the summer holidays are over and the kids have gone back to school, believes now is the time most Brits will be daydreaming about their next break.

The travel site found that 66% of Brits surveyed typically check the prices of holidays and flights periodically, even if they are not planning a specific trip.

And when it comes to choosing a destination, friends and families leave the biggest impression for most Brits, with 49% stating they got their travel inspiration from those closest.

Travel websites came in a close second, with 46% of Brits sourcing journey ideas from the web, ahead of newspapers/magazines, and travel agents, which both provided travel inspiration for 22% of Brits surveyed. Social media and blogs trailed behind, inspiring 9% and 4% of Brits, respectively.

In terms of planning ahead, the company's survey found that 35% of Brits book between two and three months in advance of travel and 24% book between four and six months in advance. Only 16% book more than six months in advance, suggesting the traditional notion of booking travel a year in advance for the following summer, is going out of fashion.

Conversely, results showed that 19% of Brits book with a month or under to go, which indicates Brits are also less ‘last-minute’ than they might think.
