51 percent of French perople say that looking for the cheapest flights online is the most stressful part of their holiday experience.

Only 35 percent said they were most worried about about passing airport security. That’s according to a poll by Skyscanner, an online flight comparison site.  

The economic crisis and the time spent checking out the different flight comparison sites could explain this percentage, the French website tourmagazine.fr reports.  

Unlike the French, tourists from other countries including Spaniards, Italians, Germans and Swedes are more worried about choosing the right destination. 30 percent of non-French tourists are worried about where they will spend their holidays, Skyscanner reports.  

24 percent of non-French tourists are worried about finding the cheapest flight online. 

Meanwhile, only 1 percent of the French are anxious about choosing the right destination.   

20,000 people took part in the poll in twelve different countries including France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, the UK, India and Brazil.
