KAYAK.co.uk has become the first travel search engine in the UK to offer space travel, with users able to become astronauts and book a trip to space.
The out-of-this-world experiences are on offer with the travel search engine for £91,476 per person with XCOR Space Expeditions.
Research from KAYAK.co.uk among the British public shows a strong appetite for space tourism and found that over half of UK adults (52%) say they would like to try space travel – providing it was safe and affordable. Men were significantly more likely to want to try it than women (66% versus 39%) and nearly three quarters of those under 35 (74%) would like to give it a go.
Hopeful about the prospect of space travel, more than a third of Brits (37%) think there is a chance that recreational travel into space will become commonplace in their lifetime, rising to three in five (59%) for those under 35.
Expeditions with XCOR depart from the Mojave Desert, California, and Curaçao (Dutch Caribbean) taking approximately 5 minutes to to get out of the Earth’s atmosphere, ensure flight participants a view of Planet Earth and make them an Astronaut for life before to land back on earth. The total flight duration is approximately 60 min.
