It’s like a trip to IKEA, or offering to cook dinner for the in laws; going on holiday with your partner often ends up with an argument.
So in order to help you enjoy the sun, sex and magic of a holiday instead of endless arguments, a company has set up a 24-hour ‘Couples Counsellor’ hotline to help you salvage what’s left of your relationship after going to Lanzarote.
Research by Holiday Autos has found that nearly half of Brits fight at least once a day every day on holiday.
Five per cent of those even happen within 30 minutes of arrival.
The majority of the tension stems from bad navigation and backseat driving - 33% of people surveyed claimed that in-car bickering during a trip had seriously affected their children’s wellbeing.
And unsurprisingly, booze was the culprit for 17% of squabbles, so maybe lay off the Rosé this time.
“Millions of couples pack their bags and head abroad for what they hope will be a harmonious holiday with a loved one, but the reality often doesn’t match the dream,” psychologist and relationship expert Corrine told Metro.
“Petty squabbles about small and insignificant details can often snowball out of proportion and quickly become a serious rift in an otherwise happy relationship.
“This is because we bring our stress and unreal expectations on holiday with us as ‘baggage’, and often haven’t spent much time together in previous months, so irritations hit the fan.”
Until September you can call the hotline and talk to Corrine or another trained operator for one-to-one relationship help.
So if you sense a storm a brewin’, call +44 2033 187 336 or visit the Holiday Autos website.
