The Sabre Traveler Trends Survey has revealed that men are responsible for 10 per cent more solo travel bookings than women whilst when it comes to couples booking holidays, 40 per cent of both men and women contacting their agency to book their vacation.
However, 60 per cent of people like to book their own travel as they want to ensure their customisation options are organised correctly.
