Heading into the holiday season Trafalgar, the leading global guided travel company surveyed 2,500+ parents across the U.S. to discover just how stressful, costly and time-consuming the holidays are for them. The results illuminate a list of compelling reasons on why the overwhelming majority of American parents admit they would rather cancel Christmas this year… and travel instead:
- Over half of parents (66%) say they would cancel Christmas this year to travel instead, with majority (78%) noting they would rather spend their money on a vacation instead of holiday gifts
- According to the findings, parents’ stress doubles during the holidays and they can nearly eliminate that stress by traveling instead – see stress matrix, below. Trafalgar’s guided trips remove the stress from family vacations, view the itineraries here.
- Spending the holidays at home can actually be more expensive than a week-long family vacation in Europe with Trafalgar, with 56% of parents planning to spend $5,000+ on the holidays this year
- Parents spend 1-2 months prepping for the holidays, and 1 in 3 parents have had to take a day off from work to prep for the holidays
