Holiday Extras poll shows travel chaos 'hugely exaggerated'
Leading travel firm, Holiday Extras*, has released details of a recent poll, which shows that despite widespread concerns, most people are getting away on their travels as planned.
The poll, which was conducted by Holiday Extras and quizzed 1,000 travellers last weekend, found that 93% of people got away as planned.
What's more, 30% said they saw no disruption, 50% said they had experienced some queues but only 4% said they missed the flights owing to airport queues.
Group Chief Executive of Holiday Extras, Matthew Pack, said: "We have every sympathy for anyone who has missed out on their chance to get away because of the recent travel disruptions. It's always disappointing to plan for a holiday and then have to change your plans.
"But the predictions of 'travel chaos' this summer are hugely exaggerated. Even during the worst travel delays, the Jubilee and half-term week, 94% of flights took off and landed as expected, and since then the airlines and airports have made extra provisions to keep things running smoothly."
He continued: "With a bit of preparation and planning, we're expecting people to have hassle-free trips this year."
