People Don’t Take A Vacation From Their Phones

A lot of us will be heading off on vacations in the coming weeks, and while you may be dreaming of relaxing by the pool or beach, a new study reveals that in reality, just like you do at home, you’ll actually be spending a lot of time looking at your phone.

According to a new survey, 81% of people say their smartphone is their most necessary travel accessory, with people spending on average three hours a day looking at their mobile devices, as compared to two and a half hours working on their tans.

So what’s everyone doing with their smartphones on vacation? Well, apparently gloating. The survey found that 50% of people say they upload photos to social media specifically to show off to friends, while 28% check into places on social media for the same reason. Of course, a lot of people use their smartphones simply to check up on their social media accounts, with Facebook the most commonly checked  platform for vacationers (77%), followed by Instagram (32%), YouTube (25%) and Twitter (24%).

  • But social media isn’t the only thing the phone is used for. In fact, 51% of people say they use it to get information while they’re away, with information about restaurants and markets the most popular searches (71%). Other top searches include tourist attractions (59%), maps and directions (56%), discounts and deals (38%) and local beaches (33%).
