Croatian Travellers Consider Travel More Important Than Before Pandemic

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Ana Blaskovic writes, by intensifying the coronavirus vaccination procedure, people around the world are eager to travel once again, and nearly two-thirds of those surveyed by found that travel is more important to them now than it was before the pandemic took the world by storm.

The digital platform conducted a survey back in January this year on 28,000 passengers from 28 countries, including 1,001 respondents from here in Croatia, which showed that after months on end of restricted movement, Croatian travellers and indeed others can now “see the light at the end of the tunnel” because of the advent of the vaccine.

Two-thirds of travellers are hoping to travel somewhere for leisure and tourism purposes at some point during 2021, and just as many have an even greater desire to travel than before the pandemic struck precisely because of last year’s unprecedented restrictions. More than half of passengers, more precisely 59 percent of them, said they would not travel abroad until they were vaccinated against the novel virus, and 55 percent said they would only travel to countries that have introduced their own vaccination programmes.

For tourism workers, the important and deeply concerning information is certainly that as many as 41 percent of respondents are still reluctant and even skeptical about whether the vaccine will really contribute to safer travel at all.

Six out of ten passengers believe that they will be able to travel somewhere to the beach by the summer of this year, only six percent intend to book an active vacation, and only five percent of them would choose a city break this year.

73 percent of the respondents would agree to travel with a mask on their face, and the vast majority, 64 percent, would support a travel ban for people without a mask, pointed out.
