Many people crave another holiday as soon as they land on home soil, according to research
Latest research has concluded that people want to go on another holiday only six weeks after they have come back from their latest vacation. The survey of 1,714 adults was produced by www.sunshine.co.uk - the online travel agent - and the month-and-a-half average time figure was one of the main conclusions of the research.
Reasons for wanting to go on another holiday in such close timescale to the previous one were given as the stress of family life and the pressures of work. The weather was given as the main reason by 11% for wanting another holiday, of those that needed to go away again. Money can be saved on
travel insurance when you buy cover for a year - essential if you are taking multiple holidays.
Of those questioned, about 75% said a holiday outside the UK was very important or essential. Only 9% stated they were not bothered if the trip was overseas, while 3% did not feel the need for another holiday. Chris Clarkson, Sunshine.co.uk co-founder, said: "I think there are many people who would feel a constant need for a holiday, no matter if they'd just returned from a fortnight in the Caribbean or if they'd not had a trip abroad for 10 years."
