On average, new couples go on holiday together within five months of forming a relationship and 73% are will argue on their first getaway, the research showed.

Travel agent Sunshine.co.uk found 21% of couples who went to Mexico broke up after their holiday, followed by 17% who went to Ibiza and 12% who visited Portugal.

Out of 2,187 people surveyed, 1,056 had broken up with a partner within six months of going away together.

The most common reasons couples fight on holiday included running late for the airport, arguing over how to spend their time, and falling out because their partner flirted with someone else.

Couples who chose destinations like Tenerife and Italy as a first holiday were less likely to split up, the study claims.

Chris Clarkson of Sunshine.co.uk said: “Holidays to Mexico require a bit more of a splurge than some of the other destinations on the breakup list and Ibiza is known for its carefree-party vibes, so maybe frivolous spending and too much partying are what spells future trouble for relationships.”
