Many Britons could be jumping on ferries from Plymouth to Santander
or Portsmouth to Bilbao when the Diamond Jubilee bank holiday takes place.
A study by YouGov commissioned by Abta has found one-in-ten people will make use of the period to take a holiday, by taking an extra three days off to make a week or more away.
Commenting on this, Holiday Hypermarket's managing director Calum MacDonald said: "While Brits obviously have a lot of affection for the Queen and are proud of her 60-year reign, the bank holiday is a great time to take a mid-year break."
He said the data indicates Spain will be among the popular destinations during this period, while the 18 to 24 age range is most likely to take a break at home or overseas.
Earlier this month, Abta's research indicated that Spain would be the most popular Easter getaway destination, with an estimated 1.5 million Britons going there.
