Maisie Adam on minding the opinion gap for holidays

New research uncovers eye-opening stats, highlighting that Brits are far too often easily swayed by the opinions of others when it comes to planning their life and travels – and it’s often letting them down. 

Revealed in World of Opinions 2023, a new study by KAYAK – the world’s leading travel search engine – which explores the relationship between travel, opinions and perspectives about ourselves and our world, the vast majority (69%) of UK adults are letting the opinions from friends, family and others guide their vacation choices, while nearly 1 in 4 (24%) have scrapped a holiday plan they wanted to do completely after being influenced by the opinions of others. 

And all that despite the fact that the majority of Brits (82%) have experienced travel recommendations that differ from their own opinions, thus, often not living up to their expectations.

Aston spoke to comedian Maisie Adam.
