How people see the current situation for taking holidays and short breaks
Currently, people have very low confidence that life will return to ‘close to normal’ before spring/summer 2021. And a significant number think it will take longer.
This has affected domestic tourism, with many people lacking the confidence to travel within the UK. Only 72% of the UK population are confident in taking an overnight trip from October onwards. This figure would be close to 100% in normal times.
But there is still a good chunk of the population (29%) who are intending to book a trip between November 2020 and Summer 2021.
Government travel restrictions are the biggest deterrent to travel, alongside the fear of catching Coronavirus.
