Britons could decide to avoid EU travelling altogether due to this reason
Britons heading abroad for their summer holiday this year have been hit with chaos at the airports across the UK.
From delayed flights to long passport queues, some holidaymakers have been stuck at the airport for over two days.
In light of recent problems when travelling to Europe, many British holiday seekers could decide to avoid the countries altogether.
It is hardly surprising especially after many reports have found that staycations are the popular option this year for a holiday.
One in ten stated that they would choose an alternative destination if it meant avoiding long queues
However, HolidayExtras.com found that Britons could decide against the EU altogether.
In a survey of 4,000 people, one in five (20 per cent) of those heading abroad claimed that the tighter border controls for the EU could actively put them off travelling there and would avoid travelling.
A further one in ten stated that they would choose an alternative destination if it meant avoiding long queues and waiting times.
The huge delays come in light of the changes for non-Schengen passengers who enter and exit the EU countries.
EU travel has been hit with delays and long queues, leading to Britons to avoiding travelling there
Ant Clarke Cowell at Holiday Extras commented on the findings and what they present to the future of travel for British holidaymakers.
He stated: “However annoying and frustrating these delays are for holidaymakers, the UK’s decision to leave the European Union last year has already changed the easy access and privileges of free movement that those in the Schengen zone enjoy.
“Though this initial panic and chaos might ease, longer waiting times at border controls in Europe is something that Brits may have to get used to.”
Therefore it comes as no surprise that Britons are choosing staycations for a holiday now.
Britons are choosing to ignore the EU post-Brexit and choose a staycation insead
Even the wet weather isn’t deterring Britons sticking out the UK for a family break.
The boom post-Brexit has found that half the nation have chosen a trip to somewhere in the UK as opposed to popular holidays abroad.
Many have chosen a staycation due to the ease of travel, being able to drive to the location as opposed to flying in light of the problems at the airports currently.
And with many beautiful destinations around the UK, many admit to wanting to visit something a bit closer to home.
