Going Off the Grid on Vacation

With 79% of respondents in a recent American Express survey acknowledging that they expect to remain connected on their next vacation, it’s no wonder that hotels and travel agencies are offering “digital detox” vacations where you can surrender your electronic devices in exchange for a book, board game or yoga.

• 49% utilized Internet sites to find trip-related information

• 41% did online banking

• 27% checked/updated their social-media profiles
