The Huffington Post Released New Family Travel Trends
On July 10, the Huffington Post released the results of a survey about family travel.
- 45% said airline mile redemption was a deciding factor (even though it is much harder to earn or redeem frequent flyer miles now)
- 75% said they "stole" overhead bin space of others' (because airlines are charging a big price for check-in luggage?)
- More than 1/3 said they brought their own food to eat on the plan (not sure if it includes snacks)
- 72% of family travelers have either booked other accommodation options than hotels, such as hostels or home and apartment rentals (Have you or will you? Why?) --- Want to read more about hostels? Here are a couple of relevant discussion: A. Hostels: Another alternative for investors and travelers and B. A follow-up discussion about hostels - Additional insights from the staff.
Are there any results that surprise you?
