Next time you’re planning a vacation, don’t leave it to the men in your life — science says they’re not as good at it as women.
Not only will women do more research, they will also make better decisions.
A recent Skyscanner study found that 75 percent of women do research when planning a vacation, with 95 percent of respondents happy doing it, both men and women.
However, there are also scientific studies showing that women are more likely to spend time looking for a good holiday by looking at a range of criteria such as hotel reviews and local travel advice.
Liddy Pleasants, of travel company Stubborn Mule, told the Telegraph: “They’ll be reading all the reviews, spending ages on every hotel website, reading blogs to see if there’s anything else they should consider.
“They ask a lot of questions, really go into detail and keep checking to make sure everything is spot on.”
However, men are “more determined”, but book a holiday more impulsively and less researched.
This was echoed by the director of psychological consulting firm Perform & Grow, Sally Evans, who said that 12 out of 32 studies found that women were more analytical when it came to making decisions, while men “were more likely to come to terms with a idea to go”.
And the Skyscanner study even found that a third of men even think women are better at booking holidays than they are.
A 2017 study found that women also organize far more vacations.
Women are more likely to pack, get travel insurance and ask neighbors to water the plants while they’re away, while men book airport parking and buy foreign money.
The study also found that it’s usually up to women to renew expired passports, hire someone to look after pets while they’re away, and hire someone to take out the trash cans.
The study, commissioned by Airport Parking & Hotels, also found that 66 percent of men believe they do most of the holiday planning.
But 72 percent of women say they tend to do the majority of it.
Spokesman Nick Caunter said: “Research suggests that there are certain tasks that men are more inclined to and those that women are more likely to sort.
“Perhaps we tend to take on certain tasks because they fit certain strengths or interests.”
In 2017, a man even took the wrong passport with him on vacation – and then ended up 560 miles in the wrong place.
