Desire to book and go on holiday on the up after COVID-19 restrictions: A poll by Travelzoo has found that while in April just over half of its members said they would book a holiday provided they were offered flexible cancellation (54%), the percentage had increased to 74% in May.
In the latest survey, when asked about when they would be looking to go on a domestic or overseas holiday, many of the 1,700 respondents said they would be prepared to go in September this year (2020). When asked about the dates they would look to book a holiday abroad, 31% said they would consider getting a holiday booked for next year (2021), however 16% would be happy to go in September, and 14% in June and July.
When asked to select destinations they might consider, Cornwall was the most popular UK destination, while those looking for an overseas break named Greece as their top choice.
When it comes to the type of holiday generating the most interest, Travelzoo said B&B breaks were the most popular, a change from the pre-coronavirus choice of all inclusive deals. When asked about their preferred type of holiday over the coming year, 39% said B&Bs, while 36% said all inclusive (was 50% pre-COVID), and 35% said self catering was their top choice. .
