HOTELS.COM EXCLUSIVE ESCAPE RATES
HOTELS.COM LAUNCHES EXCLUSIVE ESCAPE RATES FOR
SOLO MILLENNIAL TRAVELLERS IN THE MIDDLE EAST THIS CHRISTMAS
This Christmas, Hotels.com® is launching an exclusive rate for single millennials in need of a break from family fun over the holiday season. The 50% off #XmasEscape Rate has been designed to help the 174 million single millennials1 who’ll be surrounded by smothering parents and family members and their kids.
Apparently for millennials, ‘tis the season to be nagged, as Hotels.com’s new research shows boomers will spend two hours harassing their responsibility-averse offspring about their inept ‘adulting’ this Christmas. More than a quarter of millennials globally and in the Middle East (38%) said that not buying a house yet was one of the top critiques from family members, followed by not saving enough money (33%). Hence, it comes as no surprise that many millennials are looking forward to spending Christmas on solo trips to escape nagging parents! Topping the list of the best bits of flying solo at Christmas include being able to spend their time exactly how they please (55%) and letting their hair down and enjoying Christmas parties with other people (40%).
Hotels.com research predicts that most millennials in the Middle East will have had enough of the family festivities on Boxing Day, with more than half (63%) admitting they get bored of the ‘fun’ yet they’re not able to leave because they love their family (63%) or they don’t want to be alone (45%). Hotels.com is championing naughty and nice, single and proud millennials with the #XmasEscape Rates. The discount code XMASESCAPE is designed for all single travelers who could do with a little seasonal solo Rest & Relaxation. The single-exclusive rates can be claimed on 26th December for same-day stays– just when everything is getting a bit much.
Emma Tagg, Senior Global PR Manager at Hotels.com brand says, “With everyone nagging you about your lack of savings and other issues, festive family gatherings can all get a bit much. Don’t let your empty wallet be a key factor in not living your best Hotel Life – we’re here to give the gift of peace this Christmas, with #XmasEscape Rates.
