One-third of woman want to join mile-high club

Girls just want to ... stress?

Not only do 34 percent of women want to join this racy club but they are also 'stress heads' prior to a holiday, a report from reveals, which of course defeats the purpose of taking a break in the first place.

The report, which makes known 'what women really think about holidays', also reveals that a destination's 'star factor' plays a part in influencing women’s travel plans.

One in four Gen Y women admit that if a destination is frequented by celebrities, they are more likely to travel there.

"It might be wishful thinking, but given the chance, women would most like to holiday with Hugh Jackman, George Clooney and Bradley Cooper. That's a pretty impressive wish list," said spokesperson Kristy Harrison.

However, true love does run deeper for some women with 21 percent of singles citing the destination’s reputation for attracting other singles effects their travel plans. And for the men? Well the findings reveal that you can double that figure.

Men can also take note of the fact that 70 percent of single ladies find 'being well-travelled' an alluring quality in a prospective partner.

Meanwhile, further evidence of new-age holidayers no longer being able to 'switch off', is the finding that 54 percent of women check their Facebook and Twitter profiles when on holidays, compared to 38 percent of men.

"It pays to think twice before accessing social media from your mobile phone. Thirty-one percent of women surveyed have suffered from 'bill shock' on their return home. That's not the return to reality most of us are looking for," said Ms Harrison.

Other key finding from the online survey of 6500 Aussie women, were that 87 percent of respondents noted relaxation as their number one reason for travelling while for four percent it was to enhance their career.

Also revealed was that 44 percent of women claim that the strong Aussie dollar has no bearing on their travel plans.

Why would you want sex in a crummy toilet that probably has pee on the floor. Now, if it was Emirates A380 spa suite then that would be another story!
I wish to offer my services to those ladies who wish to join the mile high club but have no interested partner.
