When it's cold and foggy outside it's pretty much essential to daydream about warm sandy beaches and piña coladas.
But new research has discovered that British holiday makers really do have a formula for the 'perfect holiday' - starting with a first class five hour flight, followed by nine hours of sun per day and ending with the ultimate golden tan!
Colletts Travel, who commissioned the survey, discovered that we want 11 days of luxury, daily massages, yoga classes and a private butler as well as a plenty of quality beach time on the ultimate fantasy holiday...
So, basically we all want to be millionaires.
Surprisingly Brits who crave top class service don't crave culture. In fact, we would all rather be reading Fifty Shades of Grey and eating all inclusive grub than devouring Booker Prize winners and Michelin meals.
One thing all of the women surveyed agreed on was who they'd want on the sun lounger next to them. A tall, toned and very muscular stranger like David Gandy is high on the list, preferably sat round a private pool with direct access to the beach.
Luckily we're not delusional about the cost of such a fantastic excursion. Brits would expect to pay around £2,500 for the pleasure of a July holiday with room service, private sunbeds, peace, quiet and great cocktails.
Take a look below at a list of the top 30 things that make a holiday perfect according to research...
