LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to new research from One Poll, commissioned by online travel retailer Bravofly (http://www.bravofly.co.uk/), ten per cent of men and women now make a reservation in their work ‘down time’.
And those living in the West Midlands and London are most likely to use their lunch hour (18 and 17 per cent respectively) to get business or personal breaks planned.
Another one in seven - 16 per cent - rush through a cheeky booking when the boss isn’t watching, with almost a third of us (30 per cent) using a company laptop to browse.
And it seems men are the sneakier sex, with more male employees admitting trawling for flights work time (20 per cent versus 12.5 per cent of women) and more than a third of blokes asked using their office computer - compared to just 27 per cent of women.
According to the research, which gathered the opinions of 500 adults across the UK, only 43 per cent of us are prepared to wait until the evening to look for the best deals, with just 22 per cent holding back until the weekend.
But it seems speed is of the essence, whenever you book.
Bravofly recently launched their own booking app (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/bravofly-book-low-cost-flights/id381325799?mt=8), partly in response to the news that a tech-savvy 15 cent of us make reservations from our mobile and 26 per cent use a tablet.
Our appetite for flights seems to be growing too as more than two thirds - 69 per cent - make up to five bookings a year for themselves with a third (32 per cent) splashing out £300.
Speaking about the findings, a Bravofly spokesman said: “The way people look for and book flights and other travel services is changing and our service reflects that.
“What this shows very clearly is that customers want to be able to access the best deals and prices wherever they are - and however they choose to book.
“Our new app makes it easier than ever to find the best prices and book key trips from your handset or mobile.”
