Travellers prefer sunshine over snow

Travellers prefer sunshine over snow for their March holidays.

A study by GO Group Survey has revealed that US residents are looking towards the sun for Spring Break 2020, with 29 per cent of those indicating they are planning to head somewhere warm and sunny.

And when it comes to choosing where to go, eight per cent of people were heading to a city in the United States whilst three per cent planned to head over to Europe. A further seven percent also said they were looking at a different international destination.

John McCarthy, president of The GO Group, said: "The spring is a popular travel time for families taking advantage of time off from school. We anticipate the number of people traveling to all destinations will increase as we approach the spring break season."

Meanwhile, a previous study revealed only two fifths of Americans use their time off work to go on holiday.

Most residents of the United States decided to go on vacation when they get on a break from work whilst 51 percent of those surveyed admitted they do not use their allotted vacation time.

A spokesperson for said: "We spend most of our lives at work and it can be a very challenging environment, so taking time off now and again is crucial. You don't necessarily have to go on vacation away from home or out of the country, but you should certainly avoid doing any form of work whilst not there."
