It’s well documented that women are the force behind purchasing travel, but what if men were put in the decision making seat – where would they choose to go on holiday?
With Father’s Day approaching this Sunday (this is a reminder if you’ve forgotten the special man in your life), Wotif.com has released results from a recent survey questioning male travellers about what destination is at the top of their bucket-list.
The survey also showed an insight into just how different men and women were when it comes to making decisions – with 84% of males revealing they had just one specific destination at the top of their lists.
“Europe was the most popular destination, making its way to the top of many men’s bucket lists, with New York specifically taking second place, followed by the USA as a whole,” Wotif.com spokesperson, Kirsty La Bruniy said.
“With so much on offer in Europe, with everything from Germany’s famous beer halls to some of the world’s best ski slopes, not to mention the variety of cuisines to try, it’s no surprise Europe is the must-see destination for Aussie males.
“While Europe and New York were popular with both sexes, USA, Canada and South America also rated high on men’s bucket lists.
“The rugged landscapes of these countries and outdoor activities such as hiking the Grand Canyon or snowboarding in Canada are no doubt appealing to blokes.”
Ms La Bruniy said the top reason for men selecting their must-see destination was the iconic attractions they offer.
“It’s not all action and adventure though, with more than a quarter of the male respondents interested in the well-known attractions, closely followed by a destination’s reputation as a top travel spot (19.7%) and the history (12.6%),” Ms La Bruniy said.
Somehow knowing where men want to go, we think getting Dad either socks or jocks isn’t going to cut it this year.
