Skyscanner Investigates Countries with the World's Lowest Marriage Rates

Travel site Skyscanner investigates countries with the highest population of unmarried people to inspire those that are single and looking for alternative Valentine's destinations.

    EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, February 12, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Flight comparison site Skyscanner has researched the top ten most unmarried populations in the world; places where holy matrimony is low priority and love is free.

Those facing a lonely Valentine's Day may do well to visit a country where the chances of finding other singletons are highest. Skyscanner has taken the liberty of investigating alternative destinations for those seeking romance this Valentine's day and the international flight search site can be used to pin down some cheap flights to get there too.

Latin America seems like the best place to find love with six of the top ten most unmarried people in Central and South America. With hot weather, hot dancing and hot people, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Argentina and Panama are perfect for romance hunters.

Only two European countries made the love list; Slovenia, whose tourist board aptly runs the slogan 'I feel sLOVEnia', and the tiny Pyrenean principality of Andorra which is already a popular winter sports destination whose lively après ski scene has doubtless led to plenty of lovin' - if just for one night only. The other bonus for love hunters in Andorra is its tax-free status, which means that at the very least, you're guaranteed a cheap date. Andorra can be easily reached from France or Spain but with the abundance of cheap flights to Spain available from the UK this would be the recommended route.

The Middle Eastern countries of Qatar and United Arab Emirates also ranked in the top 10 and with cheap deals on flights to Dubai available year round this could be the perfect location for this year's Valentine's celebrations.

Skyscanner Travel Editor Sam Baldwin comments: "It was not surprising to see so few European countries in these results with the tradition of marriage still strong here. However, the mass of South American countries in there was not so expected. These are all great alternative holiday destinations and will hopefully inspire those singletons (and non singletons) out there to venture a bit further afield on their travels this year."
