Holidays offer a 'vital way to re-charge batteries'

26 January 2009 07:50

The vast majority of Britons still view their holidays as being a vital way of re-charging their batteries, Towergate Bakers has claimed.

According to the company, vacations in the summer or at any time of the year are seen by most people as an opportunity to escape their hectic lives and enjoy some relaxation.

Paul Havenhand, marketing director at the company, said that even with a worsening credit crunch many people are unwilling to cut back on the benefit of taking a holiday.

"People do still view holidays as important," he affirmed. "As a nation we continue to work harder than many of our European counterparts, with fewer bank holidays and increasing number of hours worked per week."

Mr Havenhand added: "A week or two away from our normally hectic lives whether it be in the UK or further afield is still seen as an important way to re-charge our batteries."

Towergate Bakers recently conducted research which found that, rather than abandoning their summer break, nearly two thirds of Brits will be looking for cheaper holidays during the coming year. ADNFCR-1320-ID-18828732-ADNFCR
