Whilst it’s hard to determine the exact price of a family holiday abroad, particularly as it will differ depending on the length of stay, accommodation option and location, the average summer holiday is certainly going up in price, according to a multitude of studies.

Quite astonishingly, in a report by Asda Money in 2016, it was highlighted that individuals earning £10,000 a year spent on average 10% of their salary for a single holiday.
