Following the news that Jon Platt’s successful court battle against his family’s term time holiday fine may be overturned by the Supreme Court, we’re looking for parents and guardians with 5 minutes spare to complete our short survey on changing attitudes towards term time holidays.
Ever wondered how many tonnes of toys Santa has to transport on Christmas Eve? How many stops he has to make to make? How about how many miles he has to travel? Or how about the number of miles he has to travel in one night? To give you the facts and figures on Santa’s Christmas Eve travels, we’ve created the handy infographic below.
In September, we teamed up with Honest Mum to ask parents about their autumn half-term travel plans. Interestingly, only 14% of the 10,000 plus respondents were planning a trip abroad, with the overwhelming majority (86%) planning a staycation or simply choosing to stay at home.
Back in June 2016, we teamed up with blogger (and all round lovely lady) Honest Mum to find out what parents worry about most when planning or during their family holiday. The majority of parents were most concerned about sticking to their budget, but Holiday disasters came in close second, with transport concerns coming in third.
According to recent research commissioned by Travelbag.co.uk, the average Brit spends 15 minutes per day worrying about work or home during their holiday, and one in three holidaymakers can’t ‘switch off’ for at least the first two days of their holiday.
Back in May we launched a Term Time Holiday survey, to ask parents for their views on term time holidays. The results of the survey were extremely interesting, and revealed that 31% of parents have changed their attitude to term-time holidays following Jon Platt’s recent court victory, and 58% of parents admitted that term-time holidays were their only option for an affordable family holiday.
Last month Jon Platt won a landmark case against his local council, wiping the £120 holiday fine from his daughter’s school, and now parents are rushing to book cheaper holidays during term dates, in what holiday companies are calling the ‘Platt effect’.
I am very pleased to announce that Holidaysafe has partnered with parenting and lifestyle blogger (and all round lovely lady) Honest Mum, to raise awareness of the importance of travel insurance for families. To celebrate, we’re offering one lucky follower the chance to win a £100 John Lewis Gift Card on us.
