Some Britons believe they will be able to holiday to the moon in the near future, according to a survey
worldwide travel insurance, there are some holidaymakers that believe they will be needing space travel insurance in the near future, a survey has revealed.
According to online travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk, 11% of people reckon that by 2020, holiday trips to the moon will be possible.
Out of the 1,926 people polled, 16% also think that in that time there could also be a rail link similar to the Channel Tunnel built between the UK and the US.
Around 22% of respondents believe that by 2020, there could be the existence of space station resorts, while over half (54%) think that lengthy submarine cruises could also take place.
By the start of the next decade, 34% believe that traditional flights could be replaced by hot air balloon travel, with 4% even thinking that at some point in the future, time travel could happen.
Only 13% fancied going on a submarine cruise, but 91% would be happy to use a cross-Atlantic rail tunnel.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Brown said: "It seems that some people just aren't content with the holidays of today.
"Some evidently quite like the idea of floating through space, as opposed to lounging by the pool or walking along a sunny beach. It's interesting to see what some people think will be possible in the near future."
