No Cell Phone on Vacation?
No Cell Phone on Vacation?

Would you give up your smartphone for the duration of your vacation if it meant you’d get a discount on the cost of your hotel room? Apparently not many people would. A new survey comissioned by SpringHill Suites by Marriott questioned over one-thousand adults about what they’d be willing to give up to get 25-percent off a hotel stay. They found that 85-percent said they’d be willing to give up anything for a discount, and of them, 54-percent said they would give up alcohol. However, just 26-percent said they would give up access to their smartphone or tablet, and just 13-percent said they’d give up their camera and the ability to document their trip. It’s VACATION, it’s not about giving anything up, it’s about living life in excess for a week! You give everything up while you wait for vacation to come.
