THE return back to school for most kids during the first week of September officially marks the end of summer.
A recent survey carried out by travel site momondo.co.uk found 61% of the people questioned experienced ’the holiday blues’, when returning from their travels compared to only 56% last year.
Spokesperson at momondo, Lasse Skole Hansen, states: “Taking a break is a huge source of happiness for most. The annual summer holiday is often the last luxury to be spared when household budgets are squeezed, due to its positive effects, both mentally and physically. Far from regular routines and enjoying new experiences, travellers feel happier on the whole. So in reverse, a return to the daily grind can have the opposite effect on morale.
“We’ve previously seen that Brits use planning a new holiday to beat their holiday blues, by dreaming about the next holiday they would like to take on their return. If Brits are looking for an autumn getaway, they do need to book now however, as tickets are generally cheapest 53 days in advance, according to our survey of 12.6 billion fares on momondo’s most searched routes.”
