Luxury travellers will spend more

One in ten travellers plan to spend more on luxury travel after the coronavirus pandemic.

A study by Elegant Resorts carried out last month showed that 10 per cent of people would spend more on luxury travel than before, whilst over two thirds (67 per cent) of people insisted their spend would be unaffected.

And when it came to travel plans in general, over a quarter of people (26 per cent) said their "travel plans and feelings remain unaffected" by the health crisis, over half (52 per cent) admitted they would be more cautious. Less than a fifth (17 per cent) wanted to change their travel plans.

And looking forward, a third of people would travel in the autumn, if government guidelines allow, whilst 16 per cent would head abroad in the winter. Another third (35 per cent) would head away in spring 2021, whilst 17 per cent said they would not travel until "summer 2021 and beyond".

Lisa Fitzell, managing director of Elegant Resorts, said: "I am delighted to see that the appetite for travel is still very much there, and that luxury holidays are part of [clients] plans for the end of this year and early 2021. We are working hard with our partners to make holiday dreams come true in the safest, most flexible and seamless way possible. We have recently launched our new UK and Ireland Collection and are working to offer a more enhanced and exclusive VIP service at the UK's major airports as a direct response to this survey."
