The British are the most likely nationality in the world – alongside Singaporeans – to say Covid-19 travel restrictions are preventing them from traveling right now, according to new research by YouGov, an international research data and analytics group.
The data shows that a significant number (29 percent) do not plan to travel at all in the next year.
The data collected by YouGov’s Global Travel Profiles tool from across 25 countries, and almost 17,000 people, shows that two thirds (67 percent) of Brits say the current regulations are preventing them from traveling. This compares to 58 percent who say that health concerns are doing the same.
In most markets around the world, these factors are ranked the other way around, with health concerns outweighing restrictions as a reason not to travel.
Three in ten (30 percent) are planning to travel abroad over the next 12 months and far more (43 percent) are planning a domestic holiday.
The data comes from Global Travel Profiles, a new research tool which tracks global consumer sentiment and attitudes every day across the largest travel and tourism markets.
YouGov Global Travel Profiles is connected to YouGov’s market-leading depth and breadth of consumer data meaning it provides a much wider dataset than just isolated travel attitudes. It is an extension to YouGov’s connected data solutions and is complementary to YouGov DestinationIndex.
