Research finds September is favourite month to go on holiday

September is the most popular month for a 'summer holiday', according to new research from Three.

The mobile operator's study has found 29% of adults prefer to go away outside of the traditional summer months.

Three in four people prefer to go abroad rather than a staycation, with just under half, 48%, claiming accommodation is the most expensive aspect of a holiday.

For a third, travel is the most expensive aspect, while just over one in 10 (13%) claim eating out is the biggest expense.
