British women are looking to take charge of love this February 29th, with four in five considering plucking up the courage to pop the question to their partners this leap day.

Busting traditional gender norms, a new study by the UK’s fastest growing tour operator, easyJet Holidays, has revealed one in four women claim they’re more likely to propose on a Leap Day than any other.

To help those planning a romantic proposal, easyJet Holidays has revealed the top destinations for leap year proposals. Paris tops the list of top destinations as the unofficial city of love, closely followed by Rome, and Venice with its idyllic canals. The package holiday provider is asking women who are planning to propose to get in touch with them via their social channels.

Further, British women said their ideal proposal location would be during a romantic private dinner (61%), on the beach (43%) or on a romantic boat trip (35%). Other top choices included on a cliff top at sunset (28%), while watching the Northern Lights (24%) and on top of a mountain (16%).

The top destinations for leap year proposals:

Paris (55%)
Rome (45%)
Venice (34%)
Santorini (24%)
Amsterdam (15%)
Prague (15%)
Tuscany (14%)
Madrid (12%)
Athens (11%)
Copenhagen (10%)

According to folklore – in the 5th century, St Brigid of Kildare complained to St Patrick that women had to wait too long for shy men to propose. So, St Patrick decreed, that on a given day every four years, a woman is allowed to propose herself.

With two in five (39%) British women thinking the leap year tradition creates an opportunity for a fun story to tell in the future, a leap year could be time to change the relationship game.

Despite a quarter (24%) believing their partners wouldn’t like it if they proposed, over a third (37%) think women proposing to their partners is great, and one in four (23%) believe a leap day proposal would help take the stress off him.

Matt Callaghan, Chief Operating Officer at easyJet Holidays said: “We’re passionate about helping our customers create lifelong memories, so we’re pleased to offer some of the most romantic spots in Europe for a leap year proposal.

“It’s clear from our research that women across the UK have the desire to propose to their significant others on holiday, to kick off the rest of their lives together in the best possible way, and our getaways offer the perfect backdrop to this. What’s more, our unbeatable value leaves more budget for the all-important engagement ring!”
