In a not-so-shocking survey released by VacationHomeRentals.com, more than half of travellers said they’d rather lay on the beach and sip a pina colada this Thanksgiving than spend the holiday at home.

The website, owned by TripAdvisor, connects homeowners looking to rent out their properties with vacationers looking for a place to stay. Over 2,000 site users were polled about Turkey Day travel. Here are some of the results.

70%

of flyers said they’d risk missing Thanksgiving dinner at their destination if they were offered a free flight in exchange for being bumped to a later time.

51%

said they’d opt for relaxing on a beach, pina colada in hand, over spending the holiday at home.

73%

would rather spend money on a hotel or vacation rental than stay with family.

40%

plan to spend over $3,000 on Thanksgiving travel this year.

51%

named airport delays or traffic as the most annoying part of Thanksgiving travel.
