Survey shows that 70% of Europeans have travel plans until January 2022
According to the latest research by the European Travel Commission (ETC), about 70 per cent of Europeans plan to travel until January 2022, with half of them preferring to visit another European country, whereas 35 per cent plan to travel within the country, Schengen Visa Info reports.
Moreover, ETC reveals that the number of Europeans not budging on their travel plans is increasing; however, concerns over COVID-19 cases at the destination countries have surged by 20 per cent.
On the other hand, 17 per cent of the study’s respondents claimed to be hesitant about travelling, and 15 per cent remained uncertain about short-term travelling for the time being.
It is important to note that the COVID-19 vaccine is essential for travellers’ confidence and booking trends. The vaccination rollouts throughout countries enabled 54 per cent of Europeans to feel much more optimistic about trip planning within the next months, with only 21 per cent being sceptical about travelling.
The study reveals that one in two Europeans intend to book a trip as soon as they are vaccinated. Moreover, about 57 per cent of the respondents expect the EU Digital COVID Certificate to ease their travel experience while crossing borders, whereas 18 per cent claimed they were sceptical about the document and its functionality.
The survey also reveals that Europeans are more interested in travelling inside the EU, marking the highest level since last summer. Italy, Spain, France, Greece and Croatia remain the top destinations for Europeans, with 53 per cent claiming they plan to travel there throughout summer. On the other hand, 35 per cent want to travel domestically.
It is important to note that senior travellers are more likely to travel within their own country, with 44 per cent claiming to do so, whereas only 27 per cent of the 18-24 age range prefer domestic tourism spots.
