LONDON, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading online Travel Agent eDreams' latest poll of 10,000 respondents* - 2,000 from the US - reveals the motivations behind a growing appetite for Detox vacations:
- 42% of US respondents report that they might plan a detox vacation to escape from work (colleagues, boss, company culture)
- 40% of US respondents also report that their priority is to find distance from digital 'noise' - including mobile phones, social media and the internet
- 35% report seeking inspiration for lifestyle changes including healthier eating habits & relaxation techniques. Roughly a third (28%) of US travelers say that they would book a detox break to 'reduce stress, improve mood & energy levels' and 18% record a desire 'to find a sense of balance'
- The largest US group (37%) report that a big city location is the ideal setting for such breaks, with 26% prioritizing 'nature' and 22% choosing sun and beach breaks.
How does all this compare to our global cousins? You might be surprised!
