Over half of Brits would consider holidaying with their mum

More than half of Brits would be happy to book flights and take their mother on holiday.

More than half of Brits would be happy to book flights and take their mother on holiday, new research has revealed.

A survey by Holiday Extras has shown that 54 percent of people believe that their mothers would be "the perfect holiday companion" ahead of Mothering Sunday on March 22nd.

Some 19 percent said that a sense of duty would lead them to consider holidaying with their mum, while five percent said they would like to take their mother on a trip – but that their partner would not be happy about it.

A further 22 percent admitted that they "couldn’t think of anything worse" than booking a holiday with their mum.

Commenting on the survey results, Holiday Extras’ managing editor Mike Whiting said: "Mums deserve a treat on Mothers’ Day so it’s great to hear that so many people would gladly take theirs on holiday."

A separate poll by Holiday Extras recently revealed that almost half of UK airline passengers are supportive of Heathrow’s proposed third runway.
