More than one in three Britons would love to go abroad for Christmas but fewer than one in six have ever done so, says a survey published today.

As many as 49 per cent of 18- to 24-year-olds would prefer a foreign Christmas, according to the survey from Barclays Travel Shop Direct.

Londoners are most likely to travel abroad during the festive season and Scots the least likely. Most of those who fancy foreign climes at Christmas do so to get away from the British weather.

The survey found that 37 per cent of people overall would like to go away for Christmas, but only 16 per cent had ever been on holiday during the festive season.
