While, at the extreme end, one in 10 say they have been to the same place 15 times or more.

This is according to a poll of 2,000 British adults commissioned by ebookers, a holiday booking site, and conducted by One Poll.

The same specific British-loved holiday destinations cropped up among tourists: one in three said they had revisited Paris, while a fifth had returned to Amsterdam and nearly one in ten had been to Las Vegas twice.

Then there were those who were loyal to a particular country but didn’t necessarily visit the same town or city when they returned.

Half of the population said they had travelled to Spain more than once, while almost a quarter (23%) said they had revisited the States and a third have returned to France.

“But at the end of the day, there’s a lot to be said for comfort and going somewhere you feel at home – so we say re-book if that’s the way you feel, but don’t rule out staying somewhere different or trying a new activity while you’re there.”
