British and Irish couples are the least romantic about Valentine's Day judging by how much they spend, according to a survey.
The Spanish, French, Italians and Germans fork out far more on special Valentine's breaks than British Isles' tourists, the poll by lastminute.com showed.
Irish couples spend just £134 and UK couples only £145 compared with the Spanish figure of £218.
The French (£208), Italians (£176) and Germans (£153) also outspend the UK and Irish, the survey revealed.
London is the favourite Valentine's hotel destination for UK and Irish couples, with UK couples also favouring Edinburgh and Manchester.
London is also a top hotel spot for Italians looking for some February romance.
For UK couples travelling abroad, the top Valentine's Day destination is Paris, while for the Irish it is Barcelona, which is also the top spot for Italians taking to the air.
Rome is the favourite city for French and Spanish couples prepared to leave their own country, while Germans prefer Istanbul.
