It’s no secret that the holidays can be a stressful time, and that’s particularly true if you’re forced to go home for the holidays, and actually stay with your family in one home. 

A new poll by Motel 6 finds that 98% of holiday travelers are stressed out during the holidays, with 20% already being pressured to stay with their family during the holidays. Of those people staying with family, 67% will be stressed about it, with overcrowding and lack of privacy the most common stressors that come with staying at home. 

While 68% of people say cost is the main reason they stay with family over the holidays, guilt can also be a huge factor. In fact, 61% of folks wish they could get a “get out of feeling guilty” card so they could stay somewhere else, while 82% would love someone to gift them a night at a hotel or motel during the holidays.

And all this stress is certainly bad for relationships. The poll finds hat 48% of people believe they’d get along better with their families if they didn’t have to stay with them. But get this - 51% say they’d get along better with their significant other if they didn’t have to stay with relatives during the season.
