Almost two-thirds (63 per cent) of UK travellers are planning a trip to Europe in 2018. It's the second most popular destination for a holiday, beaten only by the UK with 66 per cent.

While beach holidays in the Mediterranean are one of Brits' favourite ways to experience Europe, the city break is king.

An ABTA spokesperson told AOL Travel: "The British love of city breaks looks set to continue in 2018. ABTA research shows that for the fourth year in a row, city breaks continue to be the nation's favourite holiday type.

"We are very lucky as a nation that some of the world's most vibrant, beautiful and interesting cities on the planet are on our doorstep, with extremely good transport connections and it is incredibly important that we maintain these links post Brexit."
