Nine tenths of Brits don't want to organise their holiday

Nearly nine tenths of British holidaymakers prefer to let someone else organise their holiday.

A study by Hampton by Hilton has revealed that most of us like for someone else to take charge when it comes to planning the next family holiday - or even to events like birthday parties.

However, this brings worries for the organiser too - with nearly two fifths (38 per cent) admitting they worry about keeping everyone happy whilst 34 per cent fear one member of the group might cancel last minute. A third of those surveyed also were concerned about finding something that suits all budgets.

Television presenter Andrea McClean said: "I just can't help myself when it comes to taking on the task of planning our family's trips to weddings, birthdays, anniversaries - the list goes on. From sorting the travel and deciding where to stay, to arranging the itinerary - I love making sure everyone's having a great time.

"As much as I wouldn't have it any other way, I could often do with a helping hand, so I am delighted to be working with Hampton by Hilton to launch this Helpline, which offers planners like me helpful advice and tips to make life easier and ensure everyone is happy. Organising heroes, we salute you!"

Tal Shefer, Regional Brand Head of Hampton by Hilton for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) said: "At Hampton by Hilton, we understand that not every trip is as exciting as a beautiful beach holiday or climbing the Andes. With research revealing that people are spending up to 21 days a year on average - including 10 annual leave days - on real travel moments, we are encouraging guests to make the most of their time away, and enjoy everything on offer!"
