It’s official: travel is truly a passion starter. In a recent relationship survey of over 1,000 respondents conducted by ZUJI, Aussies admit to using trips abroad to find true love or enjoy a casual fling.
While a massive 76% of respondents admitted they are more likely to be flirtatious while on an overseas holiday, and 66% said they look to find or rekindle love while away, the survey also revealed that Aussies are not entirely faithful when travelling abroad.
A whopping 66% of men and 55% of women admitted they would consider ‘extra-curricular activity’ while away from home and 56% of respondents admitted to having had ‘a fling’ during previous travels.
Surprisingly, almost half (48%) of female respondents (as opposed to only 39% of male respondents) said that they would actively pursue an overseas affair, which might explain the trend towards more women than men (29% vs. 17%) opting to travel alone these days!
When it comes to the states, Queenslanders are the trustworthiest bunch with only 35% admitting to an overseas affair. More dubious characters can be found in the ACT where a huge 75% have admitted to a holiday fling. The other states were also relatively naughty with NSW 60%, SA 64%, VIC 63%, TAS 66% and WA 52%.
Thankfully, not all Australian’s are fickle in their relationships with more than half (55%) of respondents finding themselves in a long distance relationship as a result of their overseas escapades - and more than half of those unions lasting despite the distance.
As perhaps expected, Europe has firm passion-potential for Australians, with 64% of women and 43% of men nominating it as their most ‘desired destination’. Asia came in second for 21% of men.
With 77,000 hotels available on ZUJI, as well as experiences, flights, cruises and car hire it is the perfect place to search for your next romantic rendezvous.
