Vibe Hotels Comes To The Rescue With a Girls Getaway Package
After finding that 2 in 3 women want to spend more time with their girlfriends but are tied up with work and kids, Vibe Hotels have launched a new package to inspire women to claim back that quality time together.
The new study of 300 Australian women aged 25 to 34 reveals that 2 in 3 women want to spend more time with their closest girlfriends, but blame work and kids as the main culprits preventing them from doing so.
So what’s getting in the way? The highest response for both singles and women in a relationship was a ‘lack of time due to work commitments’ at 39%, followed by a ‘lack of time due to family commitments’ at 21% for those in relationships.
When it came to travel, a staggering 3% of the women surveyed who were in a relationship spent their holidays with female friends versus 89% who spent them with their partner. That’s despite the fact that 68% of women in the survey had known their closest girlfriend longer than their boyfriend or partner. Plus, only 23% of the singletons we spoke to spent their holidays with female friends.
Lisa Phillips, Director of Marketing at Vibe Hotels, said: “Our research confirmed what we already knew as busy working women ourselves; that Australian women are feeling the pressure of work and home life on their friendships. That’s despite the fact that our girlfriends are often the ones we’ve known for the longest. So we’ve created a package at Vibe Hotels that gives them an incentive to reconnect.”
