Ever since the dawn of “Yuppies” in the mid eighties demographic and lifestyle acronyms have been common place in British lingo. Amusing and occasionally less than politically correct these acronyms reflect the British love for making fun of different lifestyles and social groups. One area where these different groups certainly differ is their preferred options towards holidays and travel. UK short break and travel specialist"> takes a look at the different types of holiday each group may find itself drawn to.

D.I.N.K.Y - Double Income No Kids Yet

With a high disposable income but perhaps not a great deal of free time due to heavy work commitments, the D.I.N.K.Y’s holiday of choice is definitely the European city break.

O.R.C.H.I.D – One Recent Child, Heavily In Debt

With halcyon days of being a DINKY a mere distant memory and a screaming child in tow, O.R.C.H.I.D’s holiday choices have become great deal more limited. Extensive journeys have become impossible and long periods of time away from home are difficult with a young child. Therefore, the ideal solution would appear to be a quality short break nearer to home. Cities such as London and Edinburgh have an abundance of activities to suit any taste and trips to relaxing country hotels can provide welcome relief – just as long as it doesn’t go over budget!
