Ask kids where they’d most like to go on holiday, and the answers you’ll get, according to a new survey, include the moon, Narnia and Hogwarts.
Other top holiday spots chosen by the little people include Winnie-the-Pooh’s Hundred Acre Wood, Bikini Bottom from SpongeBob SquarePants, and the Lion King’s Pride Rock.
Now, we may not be able to fulfil their every desire, but at least we can make some headway when it comes to the more realistic destinations on their wishlists.
One of the things I’m doing this year is setting up a savings account just for travel. Not much goes in there, but even £20 or £50 a month is better than nothing, and it means that at some point during this year we’ll have a pot big enough for a small break.
It seems I’m not the only one doing this. Sainsbury’s Travel Insurance this week released research findings that 29 million Britons have holiday plans for this year, but over three-quarters of them plan to spend less than last year.
Techniques used to keep costs down include staying with friends or family abroad, opting for self-catering accommodation or waiting for last-minute deals.
