By far the most popular holiday accommodation type is 'Self-Catering' with some 65% declaring this as their preferred option. In second and third place came Hotels and then Guesthouses/Bed and Breakfast establishments respectively.

In the current difficult economic climate self-catering accommodation offers a cheaper  and more flexibale alternative especially for young families watching the pennies. Between the beginning of 2012 and September 2013 the price of petrol in South Africa has increased 27.2% increasing the overall cost of taking a holiday here. Some 49% of respondents in our survey said that 'R500 or less was a fair price to pay for two people sharing accommodation overnight'.
