The downside to a cheap holiday? Your parents

Written by:
Some 44% of 18-34 year olds still go on holiday with their parents and a quarter expect them to foot the bill.

The conversation may not be scintillating, but it’s a cheap way to travel: almost half of young adults have taken a holiday with their parents since turning 18, according to new research from My Late Deals

Around one in five admits there is a financial incentive for going away with their parents, but – encouragingly – half said they actually enjoy spending time with them. 12.2% were motivated by the location, while 4.3% said they would only holiday with their parents if they had no one else to go on holiday with

Women are more likely to go on holiday with their parents: 48.8% of females said they have been on holiday with their parents, compared to 41.2% of males. However, women are more likely to expect their parents to pay for or supplement the trip.

A hard-core 22.3% of young adults would completely refuse to go on holiday with their parents, while 19.6% admitted to having a holiday with their parents booked for later on this year.
