It’s the holidays again, which is great news for traveling families! We’re not just talking about eggnog lattes or National Lampoon reruns – we’re looking at holiday travel J
Christmas is the #1 Holiday Travel Season for families. Globally, 4 in 5 people say that it is “very or extremely important” to spend Christmas with family, with 82 percent preferring to spend Christmas with family. Most people stay at home for the holidays, reinforcing the old adage, “home is where the heart is.”
However, there are challenges with holiday travel. Christmas is one of the most expensive times of the year to travel. Not only is airfare expensive, families also have to factor accommodation and possible car rental expenses. For example, the average vacation rental costs less than an expensive hotel room (around $200/night).
A vacation rental affords significantly more space and amenities that cater to a family than a hotel room. A vacation rental often resembles a full house; with all the bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchen(s) necessary to support any family needs.
Additionally, Christmas has found to be a difficult time for kids. Much of the struggle is not related to travel, as it is stress about receiving their gifts. 64 percent of parents of children who still believe in Santa agree that their kids’ worry that Santa might get lost while delivering gifts. But, with the latest Santa tracking apps, there’s no need to worry.
