Travel Phobias–How Many of You Have Them?

There’s travel and then there are phobias. It seems like everyone is afraid of something when they travel.


Are you afraid of sharks? It turns out 25% of us fear them.


And 28% of us have acrophobia, fear of heights, even though we may not be afraid of flying. As a result many of us like staying in hotels below the fourth floor.


Do you have a fear of deep lakes and oceans? That refers to 18% of us.


And what’s a safer bet? An overwhelming number of us have no fear of going to the circus. Less than 7% of us are afraid of clowns.
