Domestic travel grew 29% globally
A new report presented by Euromonitor reveals that international travel continues to be affected by restrictions imposed in many countries
As the world learns to cope with COVID-19, the frequent alteration of travel restrictions is changing consumer travel habits and preferences.
Euromonitor International surveyed 40,000 people in 40 countries in January 2021 to understand the changes that are taking place. The results of the travel survey show the following:
- Spending on international tourism fell by 75% in 2020 and generation Z was the most affected in terms of trips abroad due to lower job security.
- Millennials showed the greatest resistance to job and income challenges, with an average of 65% of respondents taking domestic trips across all regions. The Middle East and Africa showed the highest response with over 80% of respondents taking domestic trips.
- Mobile booking dominance is showing signs of strong growth in China, Vietnam and Saudi Arabia, with 56%, 52% and 48% of respondents booking travel via smartphone.
