Today is traditionally the day where many of us will exchange cards, flowers and other gifts with our special ‘Valentine.’ Named after a 5th century Christian martyr, this day of romance actually has its origins in a Roman holiday called Lupercalia.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, we asked Thomas Cook customers in the UK, Sweden, Belgium, Holland and Germany for their thoughts on all things romance and holidays – some of the results might surprise you!
For example, did you know that 13% of Thomas Cook customers surveyed found a long term partner on holiday? Or that almost half admitted to having a romantic fling while on holiday? If you’re considering a romantic staycation this year then perhaps you might like to rethink the idea – England and Wales appear in the ‘least romantic’ holiday destinations category!
So take a look at our holiday romance infographic for more fun facts and figures and whether you’re lucky enough to be whisked away to somewhere exotic this Valentine’s Day, or just plan to stay in and watch a movie with a loved one, we hope you have a very special day!
