A growing number of Irish people have holidays on their minds, with almost two-thirds planning a staycation this summer and one in five optimistic. They will be able to take an overseas break before the end of the year.

The research suggests that 24 per cent of people have already booked a holiday for the months ahead. People aged between 45 and 54 most likely to have made bookings.

Of this cohort, 18 per cent said they had already booked a staycation, while 6 per cent said they had already booked a foreign holiday.

Among consumers who have already booked, or are planning to book, holidays abroad this year, 81 per cent said they preferred to build a “DIY holiday”. Where they book each element of their trip themselves. This is compared with 20 per cent of consumers who prefer a package holiday option, rising to 31 per cent among the over-65s.
