Between the school runs, packed lunches, and work, a parent’s to-do list is endless, and a lack of time often means holiday planning takes a back seat. But new research reveals that family life doesn’t reduce the desire to escape to new destinations.

The research from Travel Republic has revealed that over a third (36%) of working parents daydream for up to half of every working day, and almost half (47%) are keen to travel more.

Highlighting how valuable some relaxation time is for parents, the survey found that almost half of parent’s daydream at their desks about lying on a beach (47%), sunbathing by a pool (42%) or simply taking in a beautiful view (33%).

Most parents (65%) are dreaming of an exotic beach holiday, but the USA and UK are named as family favourites for 2019. Take a peek at the top five destinations parents want to visit the most…

Top five travel destinations for parents:

USA – 33%

UK – 29%

Spain – 28%

Caribbean – 27%

Italy – 27%

The travel bug has clearly got a hold of UK parents, as one in five (22%) confess to dreaming about quitting their jobs in order to fulfil their ultimate holidays. And when parents are not daydreaming of sun-kissed beaches, they are searching for their dream homes during working hours (32%) and buying lottery tickets (34%).

With this in mind, Travel Republic has created The Holiday Generator, an interactive tool that helps parents discover a world of destinations and find their perfect break. Whether it’s a family beach holiday or a much-needed city break, the Holiday Generator will make sure the next holiday you book is the perfect one for you and your little ones. https://www.travelrepublic.co.uk/a/holiday-generator/
