 Recession-Hit Brit Youngsters Opt to Holiday, Parents in Tow

Cash-strapped UK teens are happily holidaying abroad with their parents this season. And, they don't find it in any way "embarrassing".

The proportion of Brits between 16 and 25 who want to vacation alone fell from 6 percent to 2 percent in the last two years.

According to the Daily Mail, the study also found that four in 10 men between 21 and 25 said they'd vacationed abroad with their parents in the last year.

Nearly one in three women have vacationed with mom and dad in the same time period.

"Once Britain's youth couldn't wait to escape their parents to see the big wide world, but now it seems the nation's young adults would rather stay within safe reach of Mum's apron strings," the research stated.

Nearly one in four 20-somethings say the hardship of finding work makes it harder for them to vacation, and nearly one in 10 report that their vacation plans are cut short due to concerns over their student loans, reports the New York Daily News.

However, Tom Rees senior travel analyst doesn't think that the lack of cash is the only reason.

"Young travellers are becoming less negative toward the idea of family holidays," he said.

"However, recession-driven recruitment freezes have hit graduates particularly hard and created a real fear that a 'lost generation' will be the legacy - influencing both their attitudes towards holidays and their ability to travel," he added.
