Travel and leisure insights
In terms of travel, the survey asked whether people would be comfortable engaging in several hospitality-related activities within a few months, post-lockdown, such as taking a train, going to a restaurant or booking a UK holiday. 65% of those surveyed said they would be happy, 11% said they wouldn’t be happy until a vaccine or treatment was available and 4% said they wouldn’t be happy unless they and their family were vaccinated.
The majority of people would expect to pay the same once lockdown has lifted for UK bookings (69%) but the average time before considering planning (5.1) of booking (5.5) a UK holiday remains around 5 months away.
30% of people questioned said they are not sure when they will book a holiday again which has actually risen from 23% in the previous week’s report.
Surprisingly city breaks come out on top as the most popular predicated holidays in London and Edinburgh with Cornwall and Devon also mentioned.
