Ferries from Portsmouth to Santander
may offer a solution to one of the main reasons some Britons will not travel overseas.
A survey by insect repellent maker Jungle Formula has found one-in-five Britons has never been abroad on holiday, Digital Hub reports.
One key finding was that 62 per cent of Britons dislike the thought of using airports and passport control, while 45 per cent are not keen on the cost of an overseas break.
Such issues may be tackled by taking ferry trips to the continent, which will still require the use of a passport but may be much less stressful than an airport and often a very cost-effective means of travel.
People with a fear of flying might also be reluctant to travel, but feel comfortable on a ferry.
A survey by casino RoxyPalace recently discovered the worst irritations endured by plane passengers when flying.
These include being near crying babies, squashed in next to an obese person or exposure to bodily and other odours - all of which can be escaped from on a ferry where people can move about freely.
