Whether they’re travelling domestically or internationally, both U.K. and U.S. respondents love the same thing about going on holiday: the experiences.
Holidaycottages.co.uk recently surveyed over 1,000 people from the U.S. and the U.K. to better understand how people are financing their travel.
Some findings from the full study:
- Outside of flights and lodging, nearly half of respondents said their largest expense was food – beating out excursions and transportation
- Credit is still king in America, with 62% of people using their card to finance their trips. U.K. residents largely prefer to draw from their current balance, with 67% using debit cards
- Nearly 70% of U.K. respondents and 42% of U.S. respondents have never used travel rewards points
