In order to find out what lengths people in the UK would go to in order to get their hands on a free, luxury round-the-world trip, a UK travel agency conducted a poll to ask people what they would be willing to sacrifice for the travel opportunity. The research found that more people would be willing to quit their dream job than to walk out on a long term relationship for a free round-the-world luxury trip.
The results revealed that more than a quarter of the respondents said that they would be willing to walk out on their long term relationship with their current partner, for good, if it meant that they could have a free, luxury round-the-world trip. Furthermore, half of respondents, admitted that they would walk out of their dream job if they had that kind of free travel opportunity.
Just fewer than one in ten of the respondents said that they would give up one of their kidneys if it meant they would travel around the world in luxury for free; whilst a further 16 per cent said they would be willing to sacrifice internet access for the rest of their life for the privilege.
Chris Clarkson, Managing Director of sunshine.co.uk, said the following: “It seems there isn’t much some people wouldn’t do to get their hands on a free, luxury trip around the globe. Sadly, we aren’t going to be offering such an opportunity to anybody in exchange for some bizarre sacrifices; we really were just curious about how much people would want such a trip.
Let’s be honest, it would be the trip of a lifetime; but I can’t believe as many as a quarter would be willing to walk out on a long term relationship for it! Either there’s trouble in paradise there, or those people really are just a touch heartless.”
