New figures have revealed that almost a third of students would rather travel alone than with friends. Figures from StudentUniverse have shown that 29% of young people would prefer to ditch the squad, and go on a solo adventure. The survey also revealed that less than four% of students travel for nightlife, and 60% would fly to a less convenient airport to save money. Additionally, 65% of students would take a flight with one or more stops to save money.
Students would also rather forgo convenience for relatively modest savings, with 71% would do so for savings of around £40-£80 ($50-$100). Rebecca Heidgerd, StudentUniverse’s Director of Marketing, says: “Students look for cost savings opportunities, but they don’t just book the cheapest flight full stop. Many students look at a number of other factors, including connection time, airline reputation/reviews and baggage fees. "More than ever, educated travellers are looking closely at exactly what they will be getting for their money and expect full transparency around their flight prior to booking.”
