Forty one percent of British holidaymakers find booking an inclusive package the least stressful form of holiday, according to a new survey. Research released by Club Med found that taking an all-inclusive holiday, which offers sunshine, lounging by the beach or pool, and the opportunity to catch up on sleep, is essential in creating a stress-free holiday. The online survey undertaken on behalf of Club Med UK by YouGov, canvassed the views of more than 2,000 people across the country, providing a snapshot of the purchasing decisions of British holidaymakers. Of the 2,079 adults polled, 29 percent chose sunshine as the best tonic for de-stressing. Sunshine was followed by lounging by the beach or pool (20 percent), catching up on sleep (11 percent), and enjoying good food (11 percent) and a good book (10 percent). “A holiday, whether it be a far-flung beach escape, a skiing trip, or a family getaway to Europe is something that we all need and deserve,” said Laurent de Chorivit, head of Club Med UK. “This survey demonstrates that Brits are looking for hassle-free escapes, which offer the chance to relax, unwind and de-stress.” Meanwhile, the way Brits research their holiday is changing as a result of the economic climate - the poll demonstrated that Brits are becoming a nation of savvy consumers - 22 percent defy the late booking trend by taking advantage of early booking offers.
