Five million Brits have put their plans to travel abroad on hold.

Following last week's result of the UK's referendum on EU membership, a reported 10% of Britons are rethinking their holiday plans.

Research carried out by 'VoucherCodes.co.uk' suggests that 5% of the population has delayed booking a holiday until the dust settles around the proposed Brexit, with the GBP sterling's spectacular crash in value.

Meanwhile another 5% have changed their minds entirely about going abroad for their holiday as a result of the referendum and will take a 'staycation' instead.

The company's data predicts that 25 million Brits will go on holiday in the UK this year - up by 2.5 million since the announcement of the Brexit result on Friday 24th July.

'VoucherCodes.co.uk' says that 51% of Brits will take a 'staycation', which is 4.5 million more than last year (an increase of 7%).
