Millennials are the most likely age group to book an international trip in 2020, according to a market research firm.
GlobalData found 49% agreed or strongly agreed they would rebook this year.
Johanna Bonhill-Smith, GlobalData travel and tourism analyst, said: “The news that UK millennials are the most likely to embark on international trips in 2020 is not a surprise, as this age group is already recognized as one of the most active traveler demographics.
“People around the ages of 25-34 typically seek more remote destinations, therefore the prospect of a long-haul flight will not likely be as intimidating compared to other age groups. Moreover, millennials are not in the vulnerable risk zone for Covid-19 and will therefore be the most confident to travel.”
The majority of countries outside Europe are still on the UK government’s quarantine list, but Bonill-Smith added: “As the transition period for Brexit comes to an end, Europe will still appeal as a travel destination, yet countries further afield may hold a greater appeal.
"Common international standards need to be organized for long-haul travel to become possible to not only restore confidence in the travel market, but also aid travel recovery.”
