"Phoneless Vacations" Went on Sale . . . and Immediately Sold Out
Apparently we're all SO addicted to our phones that when we go on vacation, we need to pay someone to FORCE us to leave them at home.
There's a new travel company called Off the Grid, and they sell "phoneless vacation" packages. When you go on one of their trips, no phones are allowed . . . and apparently, ALL of their vacations sold out almost immediately.
Their trips cost slightly more than what the trips would cost through a normal agency. Like their eight-day tour of Portugal would be $1,800 for two people, versus $1,700 through a Groupon deal for a similar tour.
But if you don't have the discipline on vacation to leave your phone at home . . . or stay off of the hotel's computers to check your work email . . . maybe they're a good answer.
And a lot of people apparently don't have that discipline . . . according to a new survey, 16% of people say they could never bring themselves to totally unplug on vacation, and another 43% doubt that they could.
