Reasons Why People Travel
A recent study by CPP found a third of people who fly now believe the airport experience is more stressful than the working week, with nearly a quarter saying it is worse than moving house! Flying has become cheaper, convenient and accessible to more people over the years, regardless of the airport experience being more stressful more people are traveling abroad.
From our experience at Swift Cars people travel the globe for various reasons. The most obvious one is travelling for business. People living in Wokingham and surrounding areas often have jobs in Wokingham, Reading or London. Their work takes them all over the globe. They have conferences to attend, projects to manage abroad or have to give training.
Some of our passengers that get dropped off at the airport are travelling for leisure. Their reasons for travelling vary and some have more than one reason why they are travelling. We are sharing the most common reasons; visiting family – often they have a wedding to attend or they just want to see their families. Some of their families moved abroad (to warmer climates!) and our passengers want to visit them.
Cultural diversity – there have been various festivals that they wanted to attend or they may just want to experience the culture. Some passengers just love traveling full stop! They want to see the world, with cheap flights it seems more of a realistic dream for many. A few of the passengers we dropped off were traveling as they wanted to volunteer abroad, they wanted to share the skills that they had with others who we less fortunate than them. A couple of our passengers were students that were on a gap year, they wanted to take time out of studying and explore other countries.
