SURPRISE ME! BRITS SEEKING MORE EXCITEMENT IN THEIR LIVES

    Research reveals that 73% of us crave spontaneity, with time and money the biggest barriers
    to a fulfilled life as trend towards stopover vacations takes flight
    A report released today by Icelandair revealed that over three quarters, 78% of Brits are
    searching for more excitement, with 73% wanting more spontaneity in their lives.
    The research coincides with the release of a short film from Icelandair that shows a
    passenger getting the shock of her life as she is treated to a surprise, two-day stopover in
    Iceland.
    The two-minute film shows the traveler arriving at Keflavik airport for what she thinks is a
    connecting flight. Instead she is greeted in arrivals by a host of Icelanders ready to show her
    everything that the island has to offer. Stunned and excited, she is then whisked off on her
    own bespoke 48-hour adventure.
    The research also reveals:
    ? 73% of Brits lack spontaneity
    ? 78% crave more excitement in their lives
    ? Biggest barriers to change are lack of money 63% and time 33%
    ? 71% said they struggle to find the time to do the things they love
    ? 74% worry that they aren’t seeing enough of the world
    ? 80% would consider a stopover destination as a way to bring more excitement to their
    travels
    Helgi Mar Bjorgvinsson, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Icelandair comments:
    “With almost three quarters of people craving more excitement it has become apparent that
    one destination isn’t enough for time poor adventurers. People want a multi-experience break
    to bring diversity and spontaneity to their lives and the transatlantic stopover is a way of
    achieving this with Iceland being the perfect stopover destination”.
    Icelandair’s research and film highlight the unique Stopover service, which not only gives
    passengers the time to experience Iceland as part of their trip, for up to seven nights at no
    additional airfare, but also gives them time rediscover their passions. With a host of
    adventures on offer, from taking a glacier hike, swimming in the Blue Lagoon, taking a
    volcano tour to looking for the Northern Lights, Iceland is an ideal stopover destination.
    Flights from London to New York including a three-night stopover accommodation in Iceland
    starting from just £673 means there has never been a better time to explore one of the most
    magical places on earth.
