Fast food chains popular with 57% of Brits abroad

Having familiar fast food chains nearby is a top priority for over half of Brits (57%) booking a holiday abroad, according to online flight comparison company 

The survey, carried out by 2,399 participants, put the availability of fast food behind having a hotel within walking distance of the beach and a good Wi-Fi connection. Meanwhile, the most popular outlets were revealed to be McDonalds (21%), KFC (16%) and Subway (15%) with the reasons given for Brits sticking to what they know best being the fact it’s handy in case they don’t like the food served at the hotel or in local restaurants’ (32%). Burgers, fried chicken and subs were also considered ideal hangover food for 28% of respondents while 42% said it was cheap and easy to eat whilst out exploring.
And, even though there is plenty of local food on offer, two-fifths of respondents (43%) stated that they had eaten a fast food takeout during their last holiday with a brand that they were able to eat back home.
