MasterCard released a family travel survey that revealed a whopping 89 percent of parents are stressed by the amount of time and effort required to plan the perfect family vacation, and that half of them wish they could redo a past family vacation.

Of the things most stressful for parents:
o 57 percent stress about getting to and from airports
o 50 percent stress about where to go on vacation
o 49 percent stress about finding fun and unique experiences and itineraries
o 44 percent stress about finding family-friendly accommodations
