Nearly one in two Brits find booking an inclusive trip less stressful

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.
