Brits choose breaks with their mums

We are a nation of mummies' boys and girls, and over half of us would happily take our mothers on holiday, according to research by leading travel add-ons company,

To mark Mothering Sunday on March 22, Holiday Extras asked customers how likely they would be to go on holiday with their mother. A resounding 54 per cent declared that their mothers were wonderful and would be the perfect holiday companion.

A further 19 per cent would consider holidaying with their mum, but only out of duty. Five per cent admitted that they'd love to take their mother on holiday - but their partners wouldn't stand for it.

However, a hard-hearted twenty-two per cent of those surveyed couldn't think of anything worse than taking a break with their mother.

Mike Whiting, managing editor at Holiday Extras, said: "Mums deserve a treat on Mothers' Day so it's great to hear that so many people would gladly take theirs on holiday.

"At Holiday Extras we offer a range of great value products and services designed to make travelling with a family as easy as possible, from Meet and Greet parking, airport lounges and airport hotels."
