Who doesn’t love going on a family holiday? Time to relax, forget about work (if you can), and spend some quality time with the people you love most.
But travelling with your kin can have its drawbacks - like the very real threat of familial disputes, which according to a new report by travel site Agoda, is one of the the biggest worries Australians have on a family holiday.
According to the Family Travel Trends Survey 2018, between one in seven and one in eight (13%) Aussies fear the family feud whilst on vacation, a concern only topped by the threat of someone getting sick (31% of respondents) and disappointing accommodation (24%).
When it comes to the things we can’t wait to do on holiday, 69% of Australians look forward to relaxing, 67% getting quality time with the family, and 61% getting away from routine.
According to the study, most Aussies (71%) have travelled with their core family (parents and children) in the past year, but only 8% have travelled with extended family.
In the global study, along with Brits, Aussies were also found to be the least likely to travel with their grandparents, with only one in five (20%) ever having done so.
The study revealed that 4-7 nights is the most popular duration for Australian family holidays.
