A recent report has revealed that younger travellers are taking more holidays but asking the 'Bank of Mum and Dad' to help fund the cost of their travels!
The ABTA report showed that statistically, the 16-24 age group has taken the most holidays in 2013, although even then, this is reported to be still one less holiday than last year (down from 4.7 to 3.7). 1/10 people holidayed by themselves, with 13% of those surveyed being aged 25-34 - the ones most likely to travel solo.
And it was revealed that the younger traveller was in fact the most positive about their travel plans, with 29% saying that they wanted to increase the amount of time they travelled in 2014, with only 13% saying they would travel less.
But with this proposed increase in travel, this of course means more money is needed to fund their travels. The survey showed that many younger eager travellers turned to the Bank of Mum and Dad for help in funding their travels, whereas two thirds decided to join in with the family holiday and travel with their parents.
However, if you're thinking about a long stay break or gap year there are other ways of funding your travels; working abroad during this time in English language schools are always a popular choice alongside smaller jobs in bars and shops.
Furthermore, when planning a break abroad, don't forget to invest in a quality travel insurance policy to protect you from disasters such as lost luggage, cancellation, and expensive medical bills. This could in fact be the most important thing you'll purchase for your holiday! So wherever you decide to go make sure you always live life to the full, with Alpha Travel Insurance.
