We aim for 2 holidays abroad, one with the kids and one just us. But we're doing Florida next year which we are doing all on site, so just the 1 holiday for us this year and next year to afford it. We usually do a short UK break too.

2-3. One main holiday, usually abroad but not always, plus 1 or 2 short breaks.

Usually manage 5 days abroad but try to have lots of long weekends away in the UK (Thursday-Sunday) across the year so it feels like a lot more.

2 or 3 abroad, usually 2 of about 5 days and 1 for a couple of weeks. We don’t tend to do weekends away due to work and sport commitments

At least one week abroad (visiting my mum) and 2-3 weekends/short breaks, usually in the UK.

We have 1 long haul holiday a year, usually 3-4.weeks then lots of weekends away during the year in country (we are in UAE)

I’m lucky if I get one every 5 years

We have a foreign holiday in the summer (France this year) and a few short UK breaks glamping and/or visiting friends.

1 x 2weeks long haul
3 x 1week short haul/uk
1 x long weekend eg center parcs
10 weekends away uk
We always use our full holiday entailment and buy more days off.
We love holidays!

The last few years it's been:
10 days - 2 weeks visiting family in USA (not really a holiday)
1 week cottage break in UK
1 weekend camping

Usually a week just the 3 of us and a fortnight with my parents. This year we’re considering an extra week the 3 of us in October.
We have 4 long weekends in U.K. also.

We try and go away once a month, even if it's a one night city break, getting there Saturday morning, staying over Sunday and coming back Sunday night.

Proper holidays of a week of more - 2 or 3. With 3-4 longer weekend breaks. Usually UK. I hate all inclusive's abroad and our kids are too young to do the type of holidays we enjoyed pre kids. They need to learn to carry their own stuff and then there will be no stopping us!

We go 4-5 times a year. At least 2 long haul.

One abroad, one in the UK, 3 visits to London for a few days, 3 or 4 UK long weekends.
