UK Poll Reveals Holidaymakers’ Desire for Active Holidays

23rd September 2013 • Posted in Announcements

According to a new poll, three quarters of adults between the ages of 18 and 64 desire holidays that allows them to be active, such as when they book cheap flights to Tenerife with Jet2.com and go paragliding, or take part in a water sport.

Active Tenerife

Rally car driving came at the top of a list of activities picked by these people, and 58% of them plan to try it on their next holiday.

It was not just the young age brackets that desired an active holiday. Around 65% of 35 to 44 year olds fancied trying rally car driving, and even 38% of 55 to 64 year olds also had the desire to get behind the wheel of a rally car.

Water Based Sports A Favourite

It was also recorded that two thirds of the adults questioned had already taken part in at least one of the activities on the list on a previous holiday. Some of them said they had been inspired by a recent sporting event they saw on TV, which suggests why rally car driving was such a popular activity.

Among the other popular activities were water based sports, such as scuba diving and sailing. At least 40% of the holidaymakers wanted to have a go at a water sport of some sort. Choosing cheap flights to Tenerife and other sunny destinations means vacationers can give themselves a greater allowance to spend on activities.
