The Top Things That Can Cause a Vacation Disaster

What’s the #1 thing that can RUIN a vacation?  A new survey found we’d rather go with no A/C than no internet.  But internet access is NOT the top thing we need to enjoy our time off.  Here are the top ten things that can ruin a vacation . . .

 

 

1.  Lost luggage.  54% of people said it would equal a “vacation disaster.”

 

2.  No internet, 49%.

 

3.  Food poisoning, 47%.

 

4.  Bad weather your entire trip, 47%.

 

5.  A lost or stolen credit card, 44%.

 

6.  Ending up in a bad or unsafe location, 43%.

 

7.  A lost passport or I.D., 40%.

 

8.  Coming down with a cold or the flu, 40%.

 

9.  No air conditioning, 38%.

 

10.  The plumbing breaks, also 38%.  Lost reservations, missing a flight, and bad traffic all tied for 11th place.  And one more stat:  The survey found we’d rather have access to Netflix on a vacation than access to coffee.
