TORONTO — Millennials have got it rough, particularly around the holidays when they’re subjected to constant nagging about their love lives, their living quarters and their jobs (or lack thereof).
But fear not, young sufferers, for Hotels.com has come to the rescue with discounts that allow them to escape both smothering parents and overly affectionate coupled-up family members.
The 50% XmasEscape rate was specifically designed to help the 174 million single millennials around the world find some peace (and quiet) far from home. This special rate can be claimed on select rooms at Hotels.com on Dec. 25, as according to new research, 20-somethings confess they’re ready to escape their homes by 2:01 p.m. on Christmas Day.
“This holiday season, Hotels.com doesn’t want you to drop major funds on a much-deserved seasonal escape,” said Adam Jay, President of Hotels.com. “We’re here to give the gift of ‘me time’ with our #XmasEscape Rates, allowing all those out there who are #SingleAF to have the selfish and bright celebration of their dreams.”
Hotel.com’s new research shows that boomers will spend three hours harassing their non-conforming relatives about their inept ‘adulting’ this Christmas. Over a quarter of North American millennials (36%) said their single status was one of the top critiques from family members. Other struggles for millennials include being surrounded by relationships and feeling left out of the romance.
On the flip side, most of these singles are, indeed, happy with their relationship status. Topping the list of the best perks of flying solo at Christmas are being able to spend their time exactly how they please, having no responsibilities, and having one less person to buy a present for.
Using the discount code XMASESCAPE, the single-exclusive rates can be claimed on Dec. 25 on Hotels.com or on Hotels.com’s mobile app for same-day stays – just when life gets just a bit too hard.
The struggle is real – let’s hope millennials make it through this trying time.
