A key finding of the research is that 64% of global travellers report being less likely to travel internationally in the current environment than was the case before the pandemic, while only 6% say they are more likely to travel.

Looking back over the past few months one-in-four said that COVID-19 had been a reason, at least in part, for not taking a trip.
Close to two-thirds agreed strongly with the statement that COVID-19 vaccination documents should be required for all travellers.
On a positive note the study found that there was net positive sentiment in terms of both domestic and international travel once the pandemic is over.
