Sticky Fingers and In-Flight Love: TripAdvisor's 2007 Annual Travel Trends Survey

One-fifth of travelers surveyed in the annual TripAdvisor Travel Trends Survey say they pilfered items from hotel rooms, like towels, bathrobes, decorative pieces, glassware or flatware. That was just one of the surprising findings, serious and not so serious, to come out of the annual poll. Other findings included: Four percent of travelers are likely to do something illegal on a trip that they would not do at home. Six percent of travelers were asked on a date or started a romantic relationship with a stranger while on a flight, up from four percent last year. Forty-seven percent of travelers, down from 55 percent last year, said intend to visit a spa, a surprising figure given the red-hot pace of the spa business.
