Our latest survey has found that a third, 34% of Brits over the age of 30 regret not having gone on an 18-30s style holiday, with the majority of them claiming to feel that they had ‘missed out’ by not going on one.

The poll was carried out as part of ongoing research into the attitudes of Britons towards certain types of holidays and experiences abroad. We polled 1,083 people over the age of 30 from across the UK.

74% said they had never been on an 18-30s style holiday

We asked those polled if they had ever been on an 18-30s style holiday before, to which almost three quarters said ‘no.’

34% of those admitted that they regretted their choice not to go on one and when asked why, the majority said that they had missed out on the chance to go on that type of holiday.

21% of those that had been on an 18-30 style holiday said they hadn’t enjoyed it

Despite many regretting the fact they hadn’t been on an 18-30 style holiday, a fifth of those who had said that they hadn’t enjoyed the experience. Perhaps they weren’t missing out after all?  44% of those who had been away on an 18-30s style trip abroad admitted to having a holiday romance (or two) whilst they were there.

The average person had been on holiday 21 times in their lifetime so far

Those that took part in the survey were asked how many holidays they had been on in their life so far. The average number stated was 21 holidays, with the average frequency being one holiday every two years.

91% of respondents have returned to the same holiday resort more than once

When asked ‘Have you been to the same holiday resort more than once?’ 91% of respondents said that they had. When asked why, half of those polled, 52%, said they liked the familiarity, whereas 24% claimed it was because of habit.

Spain was the most frequently visited country amongst those polled

Respondents were asked which destinations they had visited in the past. Spain was the most frequently visited country amongst the people polled, followed by France, Portugal and Greece.

Whilst 18-30 style holidays are often associated with young people drinking copious amounts of alcohol, not all of them are the same. Different resorts provide different experiences, so if you’re looking for something a bit more laid back, then there will be something out there for you.
