Bankers belong in Tuscany, and accountants on the Côte d’Azur, while media types prefer the Greek Islands
Teachers prefer to spend their summer holidays on the Costa Blanca, financial workers favour trips to Tuscany, and Turkey’s Dalaman region is overrun with hairdressers, new research has suggested.
An online travel agency claims to have uncovered significant differences between various professions when it comes to choosing a holiday destination.
It said that accountants are most likely to escape to the Côte d’Azur, media types prefer the Greek Islands, while the armed forces opt for Phuket.
While this is doubtlessly highly important research, it’s worth noting who funded this article highlighting a range of available holiday options:
“We’ve always wondered if people working in certain professional were more likely to visit certain destinations on holiday and now we know there is a correlation,” said Chris Clarkson, managing director of Sunshine.co.uk, the firm which conducted the research. “It seems that colleagues chatting to one another about their holidays has a big impact on where people choose to go.”
Sunshine.co.uk, it’s somewhat superfluous to point out, being an online travel agent.
