We know that the start of winter can be a busy time for travelling, and all over the country people will be hitting the roads, the trains and the airports to get away for a few days to chase the final rays of sunshine before winter properly begins. While a trip away is what everyone wants, getting there can be a big problem.

 

Travelling trials and tribulations

We asked our members a few questions about what annoys them most when travelling. Unsurprisingly, delays or cancellations came out on top with over 49% of people stating this as the worst thing of all. And who can blame them? When you’re trying to get away for some quality time with family, friends or your significant other, there’s nothing worse than a long train delay, a traffic jam or a cancelled flight.

Make the wait worth your while

However, at Valued Opinions we’re always looking for ways to make your free time more lucrative. Next time you’re delayed, why not take a survey to pass the time and earn while you wait? We know it’s not as fun as jetting off on your trip but it makes an annoying delay pass quickly. Better still, you get rewarded for every survey you complete so it makes waiting worth your while! For this week only, we’re also running a prize draw, where every survey you complete gives you an entry into the draw to win $100 in reward currency! The more surveys you take; the more entries you get! (For further details see below).

Noisy neighbours and lousy seat locations

Other pet peeves of our members while travelling include sitting next to someone noisy, not getting a seat or sitting in a less than favourable location – (no one wants to be stuck sitting near the toilets!). We can’t make any of these things more pleasant but we can take your mind off them when you take our surveys.

A welcome distraction

We also asked our members what else they like to do to distract themselves -besides taking surveys! – when they experience travel delays. Reading a book came out top with 36% of the vote, while browsing social media came a close second with 22%. Watching a film, playing a game, reading news sites or newspapers or making a phone call completed the list.

40% of our members prefer to travel with their family and 35% with their significant others, so this weekend there will be a lot of couple and families setting off for a long weekend away – we hope you don’t experience any delays, but you know what to do if you do!
