Being stranded abroad is no holiday!

Couple on island holiday

Fancy being stranded on holiday?

Everyone would welcome a few extra days on holiday, right? Not according to the results of a new poll from HolidayExtras.com, which asked travellers how they would feel about being stranded on holiday.

One in three (35%) say they would not relish an unexpected extension to their stay, and that it’s the airline’s duty to get holidaymakers back home on time.

For 11% of HolidayExtras.com customers, being stranded abroad is a scary prospect they wouldn’t like to experience.

Just 3% viewed it as a great opportunity to extend their holiday, while half (51%) wouldn’t mind being stuck in their holiday destination for a few days – as long as their airline was footing the bill.

James Lewis, Head of Partnerships at HolidayExtras.com, said: “Most of us want our holidays to last a little longer, but the reality of being stranded overseas is another matter. It can cause people a lot of anxiety, especially if they have something important to get back home for. I’m with the majority on this one though, the longer the better!”
