The survey has also found a list of the top ten reasons for travel tension include needing the toilet, being late and issues with the vehicle.

Now DisneyLife has launched the ultimate driving home for Christmas collection, which has been designed to help make travelling more entertaining, and the app features the most downloaded movies and TV shows for Christmas.

Chiara Cipriani from DisneyLife said, ''Travelling to see the family at Christmas is a well-known journey for many parents across the UK - bringing with it both moments of joy and tension!

''It seems that many families take advantage of digital entertainment to make the journey a little more fun, so we're excited to launch the ultimate driving home for Christmas collection on DisneyLife.

''With DisneyLife's library of hundreds of TV shows, books and music, hopefully we can help parents and kids alike enjoy the journey even more together.''
