Majority of over 35s regret not travelling more

Three in four over 35s regret not having travelled more when they were younger and had fewer responsibilities, a new study has found. 

As a result, 65% said that if they could go back in time they would urge their younger selves to book holidays and see more of the world. 

The destinations those surveyed said they wanted to visit most were Australasia, Latin America and south-east Asia, yet only 14% could say that they had actually travelled to any of these regions. 

'No-one wants to regret the chance not taken, to sit on the sidelines experiencing the world through our friends' status updates,' Matt Fletcher, sales and marketing director for Contiki Holidays, which carried out the research, told the Daily Mail. 

Recent research suggests that the current younger generation is unlikely to have the same problems as today's over 35s, with the average 16-year-old having travelled 13,500 miles on international trips. ADNFCR-408-ID-801625011-ADNFCR
