Jobs can dictate where people take their holidays, with bankers likely to head to New York and estate agents going to Spain, according to a new study.

A survey of 3,000 adults by Virgin Atlantic also revealed that doctors and airline cabin crew are most likely to holiday in the Caribbean and lawyers mainly go to France.

Shopoholics feed their spending bug in the United States, while farmers often switch domestic animals for wild ones on a Kenyan safari, according to the research.

Greg Dawson, director of corporate communications for Virgin Atlantic, said: "Our jobs can often dictate where we holiday as budgets, interests and level of relaxation required are all influenced by what we do for a living.

Statistics show that 80% of holidaymakers chose a different destination each time they go away.
