Among TripAdvisor’s other findings in its holiday travel poll of 1,300 U.S. respondents, were that 27 percent cite airline delays and cancellations as the most frustrating part of traveling for the holidays, while 20 percent are most aggravated by inclement weather.

Also, according to TripAdvisor, those polled said their favorite holiday song to listen to while traveling is “White Christmas,” while “Santa Baby” was named the most annoying holiday song to listen to while traveling.

Looking ahead to the new year, 73 percent of those polled by TripAdvisor said they have already begun travel planning for 2013.
