TravelHappy, a survey commissioned by Hilton’s mid-scale brand Hampton by Hilton, surveyed more than 2,500 people in a GCC-wide poll to find that 70% of the participants find value to be the key deciding factor for travel.
Clean, comfortable rooms and easy access to tourist hotspots came in second and third with 45 percent and 42%, respectively, according to the survey conducted in partnership with YouGov.
The survey also found that More than 50% of the residents say that feeling carefree and reducing everyday responsibilities are the most enjoyable things about staying at a hotel. 65% states sightseeing and visiting tourist hotspots were the top of the wish list while on holiday.
Nearly 44% said they were “happiest” when travelling with family as opposed to 17% of the surveyors who preferred to travel alone.
