New research has found that traditional tourist destinations in Europe are still the most popular options among Britons.
Norwich Union has used its customer information to compile a profile of what it describes as the average British couple.
A typical husband and wife in the UK were said to be called Mr and Mrs Smith, own a Ford Fiesta and live in a 60-year-old house.
In addition, the profile showed that the average British couple takes their summer holiday in Spain every year.
Simon Warsop, spokesperson for Norwich Union, commented: "Contrary to popular belief, it reveals that we are a lot more traditional than we think we are."
Spain is also a hotspot for second home buyers from the UK who want a property in another country.
According to A Place in the Sun, it is currently the most popular destination among property investors from the UK.
