A third of people cancel vacation over stress

One in three people cancel their trip away due to stress.

A study by conducted by APCO Insight has found that 51 percent of people feel more stressed than they did last year and 37 percent decided to cancel their vacation because of this.

Some travellers find the amount of choices of destinations, airlines and accommodation too stressful, with 41 percent of people stressing out about how to schedule their trip.

Meanwhile, others find it more stressful knowing they have to leave their work behind. For three in 10 people surveyed, it takes them at least a couple of days to start to feel relaxed and enjoy their vacation. However, 56 percent of people feel more relaxed when they don't have to check their work email or their answerphone messages.

Holidays can also bring about strains on people's relationships and 67 percent of people admit they argue with their significant over whilst planning a holiday and one in four of people met the love of their lives whilst away from the daily grind.

George Hobica, President of Airfarewatchdog said: "Signing up for TSA PreCheck or Global Entry takes a lot of the sting out of the security lines. And, in many cases, paying a bit extra for priority TSA screening lines also helps ensure a more relaxed screening process."
