Young people much prefer to go away for two or three days rather than extended breaks, with a study by online travel site Hotwire revealing that 84 per cent of millennials like trips of a week or less.
And the best "quickie" cities are those that give you the best value of money, are easy and convenient to travel to including having short drive times to the nearest airport or travel hub and also those destinations that have a lot of interesting things to do.
Neha Parikh, president at Hotwire, said: "We love that people are becoming more flexible when it comes to booking travel, and that travellers are getting more comfortable with the idea that you don't have to plan in advance to save money, since the opposite it true! The typical Hotwire customer is super savvy and spontaneous because they know there are incredible last-minute deals to be found. In fact, more than 70% of Hotwire in-app bookings are within one day of departure! That's why the goal of our Make it a Quickie campaign is to share with more people how simple it is to get away on an unexpected, amazing trip, for much less than they thought."
