One in ten over 50s diet and exercise before a holiday
New research has revealed the efforts which the older traveller goes to in order to get a beach body, showing that many go on special diets prior to their holidays.
It shows that over 50s are just as conscious about their appearance as younger people, with one in ten admitting that they implement a diet and fitness regime before going on their summer adventures.
The research showed that women are far more likely to do this than men, with the journey towards the perfect bikini body beginning, in most cases, as early as three months before.
It found that older women in the North East are the most keen to tone up, starting a quest for weight loss months before they are due to fly.
With this in mind, it’s hard to believe that one in ten people of this age group choose not to purchase any travel insurance. As Avanti offer fantastic deals on over 50s travel insurance as well as a variety of other ages, it only makes sense to pay the small fee for complete peace of mind while you are away from home.
Women more likely to get holiday haircut
Other interesting features that the research highlighted was that women are also more likely to get a holiday haircut than men, suggesting that women take their appearance into consideration far more than men.
Just under 50 per cent look to purchase a book to enjoy during their trip, while a third also make the effort to learn some foreign phrases to help communicate with others on their holidays.
It is recommended that all holidaymakers book their travel insurance policy well in advance of their holidays, offering them cover for every aspect should anything unexpected go wrong.
