Four out of five people still plan to book flights for their summer holiday despite the impending recession, according to a new poll.
The survey by Adfero showed that just 20 percent of respondents believed the economic downturn would affect the length, destination or time of their annual break.
A wide cross-section of society was surveyed, with the results highlighting the fact that people were still keen to book flights abroad – either because they prioritised their holiday or because they wanted to escape the economic ‘doom and gloom’.
Recent research from ebookers.com showed that more people were prepared to make sacrifices in order to afford their summer holiday flights – with nights out, new clothes and luxury food items among the most likely things that people would cut down on.
The findings also revealed that just over half (51 percent) of young families think that the economic slowdown would affect their annual holiday plans.
