More People Travelling Solo
Date Posted: 30/05/14
New research has revealed that more than a quarter (27 per cent) of Brits would prefer to holiday alone than to travel with their partner.
The survey commissioned by LV= travel insurance noted that this figure had more than doubled from the ten per cent of people who would travel solo a decade ago.
According to the firm, the main reason for departing alone was to spend time with friends, while getting some ‘me time’ and having a hobby that a partner doesn’t share were the other top reasons for this travel trend.
Managing director of LV= travel insurance Selwyn Fernandes commented: “The way we travel has fundamentally changed in recent years, with people going away more frequently and taking part in a wider range of activities.”
The research also found that women prefer city breaks and spa trips, while men tend to opt for activity-based getaways, indicating that there is a gender divide in terms of how we like to spend our time.
