New lovers fear flirting on holiday

- By Chris Riches

MORE than a third of new couples planning their first holiday worry about their partner flirting with other tourists, a survey revealed.

Some 39 per cent of Britons are anxious about it, while even more – 44 per cent – fear their sweetheart may be shockingly rude to waiters or hotel staff.

Women are more anxious than men about sharing a room or bathroom.

And the fairer sex also frets more than men about their new partner seeing them in swimwear.

That might explain why 59 per cent of new couples choose a city break for their first trip, compared to 21 per cent who go for a beach holiday.

The survey of more than 2,000 holidaymak­ers found the average price of a first trip is £334 per person.

Bob Atkinson, of TravelSupe­rmarket, said: “Holidaying with a new partner can be a minefield.

“Our research found that five months into a relationsh­ip is ideal to plan a first trip. And four days is ideal length for the holiday.”
