Britons ‘eager to see the world’

World travel high up on UK Holidaymakers’ bucket list

World travel features prominently in the average UK holidaymakers’ ‘bucket list’, with buying a holiday home abroad occupying the number one spot.

Jetting off to the Maldives, swimming with dolphins and driving along Route 66 all feature in the top 10 must-do experiences; along with seeing the Egyptian Pyramids, going to a casino in Las Vegas and visiting picturesque Venice.

The research, which was commissioned by Engage Mutual, asked 2,000 people about the things they would most like to do before they die.

Floating in the Dead Sea and taking in the view from the top of the Empire State Building also made the definitive checklist.

Gazing over Paris from the Eiffel Tower, backpacking around Europe, and working in a different country feature among the must-do experiences as well.

The survey found that the average Briton holds 16 key dreams they want to achieve in life.

With a large number of them involving travel, the onus is on saving that all important holiday money before they can tick them off the list.
