Taking the Kids recently teamed up with Travelocity in a poll about the importance of family vacations and together time. Here are some of the key findings:
– 85 percent of respondents feel vacations are as, or more, important than before the recession.
– Travelers are willing to cut back on expenses like entertainment (67 percent) eating out (67 percent) and even gifts to others (29 percent) and charitable donations (17 percent) to take a vacation.
– The most popular money-saving techniques are traveling at off-peak times (60 percent) and avoiding holidays (57 percent).
– Other tactics include picking the destination based on price, driving instead of flying and vacationing closer to home. 10 percent are willing to take kids out of school as a money-saving technique.
