London, June 27 (IANS) It is often assumed that holidays are best spent with your life partner. But a new study proves the thought wrong.
The research, commissioned by Hilton HHonors (a hotel rewards programme), reveals that 60 percent of women have jetted off with their friends and left their loved one at home, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
It’s not just women, but also men who like to leave behind their partner at home while they are enjoying with their friends elsewhere.
Two-thirds of men surveyed admitted to leaving their partner at home whilst they jetted off on holiday with their male friends.
“Variety is the spice of life and trying new experiences, exploring cultures or indulging a hobby are all ways to unwind on holiday,” said Carmelina Tangi, spokesman for Hilton HHonors.
“Different trips suit different purposes, so whether you’re looking for the luxury escape of a lifetime, family fun on a beach break, fine dining, culture, spas or shopping, it makes sense to share these experiences with different people in our lives,” added Tangi.
