Holiday daydreamers

An average person spends 200 hours daydreaming about their next holiday.

A study by Apple Vacations, conducted in conjunction with OnePoll, has found that people spend a whopping 24 working days thinking about going away.

A huge 82 per cent of those surveyed admitted to daydreaming about their vacations - and nearly a third having these thoughts very often.

The biggest worries for people heading on holiday is getting the best deal when they book, with 79 per cent worrying about the cost whilst 62 per cent say the most stressful element is finding a flight.

And when it comes to choosing their next destination, seven in 10 people look to their family and friends for recommendations whilst a third of people rely on their close ones' advice for every single trip.

Others tend to look for public consensus before they book their holiday, with over three quarters (76 per cent) of people going to look at online reviews.

Erica Doyne, senior vice president of marketing for AMResorts, told The New York Post: "The need to relax and rejuvenate is important in the lives of many individuals. Browsing travel websites in their free time is a way to get ideas on what kind of vacation they may what next, or what destinations would suit them best based on what kind of itinerary they enjoy while traveling."
