Why the ‘fly and flop’ has ‘flown and flopped’

As a leading adventure travel company, we admit to being a little biased when it comes to what we'd recommend as a travel option. Clue: adventure, culture and relaxation! 
A just-published survey on travel trends, though,  has uncovered that one in three travellers prefer a hotel 'fly and flop' poolside holiday, with one in five admitting they never leave the hotel complex at all.
It would seem that this lack of imagination when it comes to holiday options has a down side (you don't say!), with one in five adults reporting feeling uncomfortable about being unable to give any insight into a country's culture and traditions.
The findings also revealed four in ten tourists never get a true feel for their destination because they don't 'get off the beaten track'.
Eurocamp's Chris Hilton, who commissioned the survey, says, " it's a real shame to return from a holiday thinking you've not made the most of your time away.'
He added: 'Certainly, our customers tell us that getting off the beaten track and exploring as a family can really enrich the holiday experience."
Which is what our customers have been saying for over 20 years!
