Where do you usually go on your holliers? Would it maybe be... Spain??

Apparently it's the most popular place for Irish holidaymakers to jet off to this year (we're gonna bet every year, actually), with a recent survey by The AA finding that the majority of Irish people will holiday there.

The survey was carried out on almost 7,000 people, with the top destinations after Spain being the USA, Portugal, France and Italy.

When the survey was taken, many of the people questioned hasn't yet decided where to go, while another large number said they were planning to stay in Ireland for their summer break.

AA Director of Consumer Affairs, Conor Faughnan said“While more and more of us seem likely to spend our holidays abroad this year, there’s no doubt that they remain a luxury for us all and particularly for younger people who may be less financially secure."

"Because we view trips abroad as a luxury there can be a temptation to cut costs wherever possible, but the one thing we would advise holiday-goers to never cut is travel insurance."

"As much as we like to believe it will never happen to us, flights do get cancelled and hotel rooms do get broken into. Having travel cover in place may mean spending a little more in the short-term but could help you avoid shelling out a fortune in the future.”
