For their last year on Earth, most Brits would spend time with loved ones or travel the world. 

The ancient Mayan calendar ends on the 21st of December 2012, and many believe this signifies the end of the world.

For the last year on earth, most Britons would like to spend their final months with their family and loved ones, while over a fifth would want to see the world, our poll carried out on behalf of Travel Company First Choice reveals

  • Family is where the heart is for most Britons, with over half (51%) chose spending time with loved ones as the number one thing to do in their final months
  • Over a fifth of people (22%) wanted to jet off and see the world
  • Only 7% of people would most like to quit their job and relax
  • 6% wanted to party if 2012 was their last year on the planet.

A third of those questioned also wanted to be in a beautiful place alone or with family, the moment the world ended.

The second survey of travel bloggers revealed that 47.5% of people would use social media to communicate with their friends, if they were the first person to know when the world was going to end.

Seeing the world

According to a separate survey of 21 travel bloggers, India was the top destination on peoples’ bucket lists, with Iceland and China coming second and third.

Nathan Timmins, Head of Online Marketing for First Choice, comments: “There is a lot of speculation at the moment about the end of the world… although the response was surprising we are pleased to see that travelling the world is one of the priorities among UK residents.”

Total sample size was 2056 UK adults. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults
