A weeks’ camping with relatives tops the charts of the most hated holiday of all, according to new research from Holiday Extras.


Of the 2,000 holidaymakers surveyed, 90% per cent confessed to finding traditional holidays under canvas the least enjoyable, suggesting that even in recessionary times, creature comforts are the preferred choice. 

And it’s not just camping holidays that have been rejected by Brits; a third of holidaymakers say that staying with relatives is the most stressful holiday of all with just 13% of Brits giving them the thumbs up.

Meanwhile, the research showed that one-week holidays are not the answer for those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, with just 13% of those surveyed saying they gain any kind of emotional, physical or psychological benefit from a week in the sun.

Other findings revealed that activity breaks were voted the most hard work by 46% of holidaymakers, with a further 52% saying they need another week away after returning home.
