A travel watchdog expressed concern yesterday that one in five people from the UK go away on holiday without knowing where their destination is on the world map.

Confusion over Palma in Majorca and Las Palmas in the Canary Islands is just one mix-up which has resulted in over one million Britons arriving at locations where they had no intention of going. A poll showed that holiday-makers found Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt, Faro in Portugal and Bangkok in Thailand, the hardest to pinpoint. The watchdog also described as “quite worrying” that 1.9 million Britons were arriving at their holiday destination with the wrong currency.
