Simply Holiday Deals Travel Survey

How do you choose a holiday destination? Do you seek out fun in the sun by the beach, an exciting city stay or an action-packed adventure to a far-flung corner for the globe? At Simply Holiday Deals, we love to delve into how and why our members travel, so we’ve conducted a survey to provide insight into your most important holiday considerations.

Here’s a look at what we discovered.

Travel Threats

In terms of safety, our survey responses indicate that many of us reconsider travel to destinations, following recent threats, while others are happy to continue on their journey. If you’re in doubt, we recommend checking government travel advisories to receive up-to-date information. Check out the charts below.

Travel Considerations

The overwhelming response in terms of travel considerations, is the all-important cost. Luckily, that’s where we come in, to help you source the best deals from across the web! Coming in a close second is weather and we wholeheartedly agree! After all, a holiday at the beach is quite simply no fun without the sun!

Travel Influences

Who gets the final say in your household, as to where your next holiday adventure begins? Our survey suggests it’s a family decision, first and foremost, with a good dose of online reviews to help you source up-to-date travel information.

Location Choices

It seems we’re all sun-worshippers, with nice beaches topping the survey, just after the quality of hotels in any location. Cultural attractions and iconic landmarks also rate highly as a wonderful reason to choose a holiday destination.

We also discovered that over 80% of our members would travel to more long-haul destinations, if it was cheaper to do so and the countries topping many wish lists are the USA, Australia and New Zealand. As for the activities everyone enjoys the most, exploring new cities, hanging out in the sun at the beach and, of course, eating and drinking, came in as firm favourites.

Thanks to all our members for taking part in our survey and happy holidays!
