A growing number of Brits decide to travel abroad during the winter, with many flying to the Southern Hemisphere to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. Official statistics reveal that a record number of Brits travelled abroad in 2016. UK residents made as many as 70.8 million visits overseas, which is a 12% increase from 2015. Interestingly, the largest number of Brits travelled overseas in the last quarter of the year, which means that winter escapes are getting increasingly popular. But with so many gorgeous destinations to choose from ranging from the Caribbean and South-East Asia to Australia, many Brits are having difficulties deciding where to go.
