More Brits are set to holiday at home the summer as a result of problems with tour operators and flights, but the two-thirds who are going abroad will still need travel insurance.

A study carried out by Opinium Research found that money worries are a significant factor for around one-quarter of travellers, with the average staycationer spending just over £980 in the UK, the Guardian reports.

Financial instability, the problems caused by the volcanic ash cloud and the threat of airline strikes proved the most off-putting for those deciding to stay at home, the research revealed, while Greece, Iceland, Turkey and Russia were the least popular to go to.

Thanks to those who are staying at home, the UK's travel hotspots look set to enjoy a boost: Scotland, the Lake District, Devon and Snowdonia seem to be the most popular destinations, the survey of 3,006 holidaymakers revealed.
