As many as 21 per cent of holidaymakers are booking trips during work time
A new survey by travel agent sunshine.co.uk has revealed more than one in five people book their overseas trip at work, with people spending as many as two hours of their company's time on arranging their holiday.
In a poll which canvassed 2,107 UK adults responsible for booking a getaway which was enjoyed in the last six months, only 4% enlisted the help of a high street travel agency. The majority of holidaymakers (42%) booked from the comfort of their own home, with 17% using somebody else's house and 11% booking through a hand-held device. Regardless of which method is used to arrange a trip,
travel insurance is an essential part of any holiday.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Clarkson said: "We've always wondered if the bookings we receive in what would typically be working hours were made by people at home or those at work who were supposed to be doing what they were paid for."
