Vaccinated travellers happy to spend more on breaks away

Vaccinated travellers are happy to spend more on their breaks away.

A new study, as part of TripAdvisor's A Shot In The Arm For Travel? Examining The Vaccine’s Impact On Leisure Travel Demand report, has revealed that those who have been double vaccinated would be keen to head away on holiday for longer as well as spending more when away.

Nearly a quarter (24 per cent) of people have booked domestic vacations but this increases to nearly a third (32 per cent) for those who have got their vaccine and drops down to 19 per cent for those who haven't.

Around 21 per cent of vaccinated respondents said they had booked to travel internationally this year, compared to just five per cent of those who hadn't already got their jab.

TripAdvisor's market research head, Christopher Hsi, said: "What offers even greater hope for a long-term recovery is the impact the vaccine is having not just on people’s confidence to travel, but also their willingness to turn planning into bookings. As more and more countries make progress on the rollout of the vaccine, and the positive impact that should have on the re-opening of international borders, there is every reason to expect further growth in traveller demand will come."
