Asda Finance Reveals the Best Locations in the World for the Three Rs-Rest, Relaxation and Romance

Asda Finance Research Reveals That When it Comes to Booking a Holiday the One Thing That the Majority of Brits Are After is Relaxation

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - A recent Asda Finance e-survey on British attitudes to holidays found that 64% of Brits, whether going abroad or staying in the UK, opt for relaxation as the number one 'must-have' requirement when they are looking to book.*

To help those looking for a holiday that combines the three Rs - Rest, Relaxation, and Romance - Asda Finance has compiled a list of five of the best three R destinations.

Whether you are hoping to have a relaxing getaway in the UK, or to head off somewhere a bit more exotic this summer, we know that what the majority of Brits are after is rest, relaxation and romance.

With this in mind we have pulled together our top five destinations where it is possible to experience the three Rs in style.

Obviously for those jetting abroad they should not forget to make sure that they have travel insurance before they go. If you are travelling last minute you can buy Asda Travel Insurance with your mobile phone. All the relevant travel insurance details are sent to you via text message, but remember that you still need to be in the UK when you make the purchase.

If you are planning a holiday in the UK this year or just a weekend away, an Asda Annual Travel Insurance policy will provide you and your family with cover for any pre-booked trips of two nights or more.

Five of the Best Destinations for experiencing the three Rs:

1. Goa, India

Goa is an Indian beach paradise that is synonymous with rest, relaxation and romance. It has lots to offer visiting couples as it is both a party beach and a honeymoon hotspot.

2. Paris, France

The perfect romantic city break destination makes for a relaxing trip. Why? Well it is easy to get to from the UK for a start. Explore all that Paris has to offer - the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame and more.

3. Lake District, UK

The Lake District is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots in the UK. It is perfect for relaxation and romance. If you like fresh air, long walks and cosy pubs, the Lake District is ideal.

4. Venice, Italy

With over 150 canals and more bridges than you can imagine, Venice is a great place for a romantic and relaxing get away. While the major tourist sights can get busy, particularly when the cruise ships are in, wander a few blocks back from St. Mark's Square and you can find yourself living like a local, relaxing and taking it easy with a coffee or glass of wine.

5. Dorset, UK

Country pubs, secluded beaches, scenic walks and laid back villages make Dorset a great destination for some of the 3 Rs. Whether it is a romantic stroll along a beach you are after or a relaxing sailing experience from Poole, you can find what you are looking for in Dorset.
