ABSTRACT
The article reports on the findings of a survey of holidaymakers by Young-Poll. The survey on behalf of Teletext Holidays, showed 65% of the next generation preferred booking online as it allowed the family to choose a holiday at the same time, and look at pictures and videos together. In comparison, 28.8% said the best way to book a holiday was through a travel agent because it was fun looking at brochures. A total of 6% said they would choose a holiday through the TV.
