More Choosing "Staycations" (and Hating It)
|Chairman of the bored.|
At least, that's what LastMinuteTravel has found in a poll that reports seven out of 10 people prefer a "real" vacation or classic getaway to a staycation. The survey also finds:
* Nearly three-fourths of Americans would take a vacation over a staycation.
* The main reason 72 percent of Americans choose a staycation is cost savings (no duh).
* Of those who said they've had a bad staycation, the main reason cited was "It didn't feel like a real vacation" (76 percent), followed by "It was boring" (56 percent) and "Too much contact with work" (20 percent).
LastMinuteTravel, which obviously has a stake in results that crap on staycations, points out that there are travel bargains everywhere and they are just itching to help you find them.
