Survey reveals what pains Australia most about taking holidays.

A survey conducted by travel site KAYAK has revealed what pains Australians most when organising and taking a holiday.

And while it may not be news to travellers, travel agents have certainly pricked up their ears at the results. In fact, they could be the solution to all your travel woes.

The Travel Survey asked holidaymakers about the most difficult part of their holidays and one in three (33 per cent) said holiday planning was the most stressful, with travelling to the destination (27 per cent) and returning from the trip (26 per cent) completing the top three.

More than half (51 per cent) of the respondents claimed that finding accommodation to please everyone was the most stressful aspect, followed by finding reasonably priced airfares (48 per cent), and packing for the trip (44 per cent).

During the travel period, 48 per cent said getting to the airport on time was stressful, followed by the packing of passports, clothing and medication (45 per cent), and organising airport transfers (41 per cent).

While on holiday, 48 per cent worry about their travel budget, and 40 per cent expressed concern about travelling on local public transport.

    Negotiating Melbourne airport, finding out that airport bus does not run anymore to popular hotel at destination necessitating a taxi to hotel, crowded planes and handling luggage coming and going from new, further away bus stop to terminal. Fortunately I had wheelchair assistance at the airport to get to the gates and lift to plane. The actual holiday was very delightful but delays in flight takeoff which meant missing bus to come home was stressful. Airport staff was very helpful but once outside airport building you are on your own.
