Holidays abroad are high on the list of things that people have missed most during the coronavirus pandemic.

Research shows that the average Brit has not jetted off for a break for a year.

Nearly a third of the British public (28%) has confessed they daydream about their next getaway.

The nationwide study reveals that 45% of the UK said being in lockdown has made them crave new holiday experience

Viewing the Northern Lights, watching a sunset in Santorini and visiting the Colosseum in Rome have been voted the top sights that Brits are looking forward to seeing post-lockdown.

Greek islands

Sailing around the Greek islands and travelling the fjords of Norway also ranked high on the list of the perfect post-lockdown holidays, with the top ten breakdown as follows:

Visit the Northern Lights in Iceland - 32%

Watch the sunset in Santorini - 27%

Feel the sand between your toes at the beach in Tenerife; sail around the Greek islands - 26%

Visit the Colosseum in Rome - 25%

Travel the fjords of Norway - 21%

Eat a slice of pizza in Naples - 20%

Ride in a gondola in Venice - 19%

Take a canal tour in Amsterdam - 17%

Eating paella in Valencia - 16%

Visit the Louvre in Paris; eat waffles in Belgium - 15%.

The great news is that Brits can still enjoy the majority of the top ten most longed for holiday experiences without having to quarantine when they return home. With many of the most voted for experiences based in countries currently exempt from quarantine rules.

Portugal holidays

Walking the old town of Lisbon (12%) was also identified as a top holiday moment the nation is missing. This is an experience that is now possible for Brits to enjoy after Portugal was removed from the quarantine list.

Since this occurred, easyJet has seen bookings to the country increase and great value seats are still available for September.

Breaks in Portugal cost from £289 per person or holidays for summer 2021 are available from £239 per person. Customers can book at easyjet.com/en/holidays website.

Flights on easyJet have resumed from the UK to Italy, Portugal, Greece and Turkey. Check out the fares at easyJet.com website.
